Art becomes apparel

Everyone likes to be coddled, but so-called pamper parties have usually been restricted to the Honolulu area.
But now women of the North Shore can head to the Goddess Tribe Pamper Party at Darrel Wilson's Retreat Center, 68-007 Aweoweo St. in Waialua, from 4 to 10 p.m. Nov. 27.
There'll be a belly-dancing class, skin renewal treatments, meditation, a potluck meal, plus free therapies provided by men, including hand, shoulder and foot massages, plus helpings of chocolate, wine and let's not forget the grapes.
Cost is $35 at the door, or $25 in advance. Make reservations through Sheea at 386-4470.
And goddesses are expected to show up in flowy attire, natural and wood jewelry, and earth colors.
Urban artist Shepard Fairey takes stage tomorrow
Meet Los Angeles-based street artist Shepard Fairey tomorrow during the final appearances of his Catalyst Artist Residency program at The Contemporary Museum.
The renowned urban artist will attend a reception at Island Snow, Ala Moana, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Fans are welcome to bring or purchase stickers, T-shirts and books for him to sign.
He'll follow that appearance with a DJ stint at Get Fresh, at Indigo, 1121 Nuuanu St., from 9:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. Cover is $10 before 11 p.m. and $12 after.
Fairey's art and cultural campaign began in 1990 with his "Andre the Giant has a Posse" sticker created while he was a Rhode Island School of Design student.
His work has evolved into a worldwide phenomenon, "Obey Giant," with images cropping up in public spaces.
He's been working on several installations involving screen windows on the museum exterior and in its swimming pool, lanterns in a monkeypod tree, and work at Makiki Skate Park. His work-in--progress may be observed through Sunday.
The Catalyst Artist Residency Program brings leading contemporary artists to Honolulu, and pairs them with local community organizations for the purpose of creating new on-site works.
