If the mad rush of the holidays has left you more frazzled than festive, why not take a break from the crowds and check out an art show featuring some of West Oahu’s brightest emerging talent?

The collective group HELLAguapo presents “What The ... Fruitcake?” from 6 to 11:30 p.m. Saturday at the Ewa Town Center Starbucks. There will be holiday treats and live entertainment throughout the evening, but the real stars are the eight area artists hand-picked to be in the show.

Among those who will have their work on display are Cheryl Lyn Membrere and Desiree Agngarayngay of Ewa Beach; Shaun Castro and Kiyo Keanini, Moanalua; Daniel Headland, Waianae; Dainzers, Mililani; and Philippe Anthony and Remi Mead of Honolulu.

“My goal whenever I’ve done an art show is to showcase homegrown and local talents who haven’t had the exposure that others have gotten,” said event coordinator Jessie Domingo. “Also, for most of the artists, this is their first or second art show, so it’s definitely featuring things that haven’t been seen in an art show before.”

In addition, Waipio’s goodGuyJames serves as emcee, Kunia’s icedcoffeeman will take photos of the crowd, and DJ enJAY of Mililani will blend some mean music and video together for an all-night performance piece.

The event is free and open to all ages. Domingo asks, however, that attendees bring a nonperishable donation for the Lokahi Giving Project.

“My thing has always been to benefit some charity with every show that I’ve done,” he explained.“Since the holidays are approaching, I think it’s appropriate that we help hook up some kids with an awesome Christmas.

“Honestly, I just want people to have an awesome time at a venue that’s kinda out of the ordinary,” added the Ewa Beach resident. “Hawaii’s art scene is growing, flourishing and developing into something special. I just wanted to highlight those that are ready to make the leap to amazing status.”
