A career that began at the Honolulu Zoo fence is coming to an end as Hiroshi Tagami and his partner, Michael Powell, hold their last show together at La Pietra-Hawaii School for Girls on Saturday and Sunday, November 3 and 4, from 11 am to 4 pm.
“Hiroshi is retiring. He may still paint occasionally, but he is now living at Holiday Retirement in Hawaii Kai and enjoying leisure time,” noted Powell. “This show is an excellent opportunity to see Hiroshi and add Hiroshi Tagami originals to their art collections,” he added.

Other Artists include: Scott Sullivan, wood-turned bowls; Robert Butts, wood-turned bowls and furniture; Babs Miyano Young, glass art and jewelry; Lois Tselentis, ceramics; and Kenny Kicklighter, ceramics.
Powell, Tagami’s art protégé and life partner, will continue to paint and is now teaching private lessons in landscape art at the Tagami and Powell Art Gallery & Gardens in Kahaluu Valley, which will continue to be open by appointment.
Born in Schofield Barracks, the sixth of 12 children, Tagami spent much of his youth laboring on plantations because his father died young. His interest in art came early at five or six years old in Japanese school where drawing was part of the curriculum.

His passion and talent aroused, he won some awards in high school and moved from drawing to photography to art. He also developed an insatiable interest in horticulture, endangered species and birds. Tagami’s paintings hang in galleries around the world.
