October 16, 2013 PRESS RELEASE
Harbor Gallery announces an exciting show with Big Island Photographer and Parker School Graduate Ethan Tweedie on Friday, November 1st, from 6 to 8 PM. Light pupus and refreshments will be served.
This special show is titled “Porsche and Perseids” and features a number of Ethan’s celestial masterpieces as well as some photos taken atop Mauna Kea this past July when Ethan joined Gallery Owner Gunner Mench in driving his 50 year old Porsche to the summit for sunset and the stars.
Ethan says this was among the best sunsets he has ever witnessed, and what happened that night was almost unbelievable! The 1963 Porsche will also be on display for the show, bearing its Mauna Kea Benchmark Badge on the rear grill.
The Perseid Meteor Showers happen every year in early August, and Ethan was invited by park rangers at Pu’ukohola to photograph the shower together with the Heiau, achieving mind boggling results after taking over 160 exposures of 30 seconds in a single night. More photos were taken along with Halemaumau’s eruption, capturing meteors, the moon, and ghostly surroundings, achieving a view that the naked eye cannot see in the dim light, but is captured brilliantly with his high quality Canon cameras and special equipment. Most of the prints are offered being printed on metal, with the most superb color rendition and crisp clarity available with today’s printing technology.
Harbor Gallery is located in Kawaihae, just north of the Kohala resorts and next to Café Pesto. The gallery is open daily from 11:30 until 8:30. Phone 808-882-1510 to reach Gunner & Elli Mench, or visit their website at www.harborgallery.biz.
