In addition to farming, Kaneko’s father Yuri, supplemented the family income by weaving lauhala baskets for picking coffee, purses, and covers for cigarette packs, among other things. By the time Kaneko was 5 years old, he was weaving lauhala baskets. Kaneko graduated from Konawaena High School and enlisted in the military in 1948. His service in the military took him to Japan where he taught Japanese to American soldiers, Korea to do reconnaissance and intelligence gathering, and to Desert Rock testing grounds as a member of support troops until he was finally discharged in 1958. Under the G.I. Bill, Kaneko moved to Honolulu to attend the University of Hawai’i and then to Michigan State University to finish his graduate degree in civil engineering. Soon after, he received a job with the Civil Aeronautic Authority and the Federal Aviation Authority where he lived and worked in different parts of the world with his family in places such as Washington DC, Honolulu, Guam and Tokyo. After retiring in 1989, he returned to Hawaii Island with his wife, Kay, where they purchased a coffee farm in Holualoa. His dedication to culture and the Kona community led him to serve on the Board of Kona Historical Society for 10 years, become one of the founding members of the Holualoa Foundation of Arts and Culture (now the Donkey Mill Art Center), assist in designing and engineering the Higashihara Park and start the Wednesday Weavers. Watanabe began her adventure in lauhala weaving by attending a Wednesday Weavers gathering in 2010. After convincing Kaneko that she was serious about learning, he agreed to teach her. Bianchini is self-taught and prolific, working in various materials including wood, stone, painting, printmaking, cast concrete, and bronze. His work is born of the present, merging his love for music, ohana (family), and the spirit of travel and adventure with his diverse blend of creativity. Furchgott has been drawing and creating art since she was very young. She is mostly selftaught, learning by doing and studying with other artists. In San Francisco in the 1970 and ’80s, she did a lot of graphic design illustrations before moving to Hawaii in 1993. In 1995, she met Bianchini. The exhibition opened April 19 at the Donkey Mill Art Center and will come to a close on June 24. It is open from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday through Satruday.
