Student’s food drive rewards donors with art

While it might be true that giving is its own reward, Punahou School student Dee Mosher would like to offer something in return: a gift of art for a gift of food.

The high-school senior has organized a canned-goods drive for the Hawaii Foodbank. At the same time, he's had student art pieces printed on note cards. Tomorrow through Nov. 25, exchange a donation of food for note cards at Punahou's Kirsch Gallery, Honolulu Pet Clinic or Frame-Arts Hawaii in town; Tom Terrifics design firm in Manoa; or on the North Shore, Cafe Haleiwa or the Bonzer Front surf shop.

Mosher has also produced a video, “;Art Work for Food,”; explaining local and global hunger for a young audience, on view as part of an art exhibition, “;Mosher Family & Friends,”; at the Kirsch Gallery through the 25th. The exhibit features work by Mosher; his parents, Hugh and Melissa Kim Mosher; and others. A reception will be held from 3:30 to 5 p.m. tomorrow.

Call 943-3675.
