Artists/Hawaii celebrates the fiftieth state's visual arts through the featured works and personal profiles of twenty-two of Hawaii's most respected contemporary artists. Artists from Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii are profiled in this lavishly illustrated volume. From an original list of 160 artists working in a variety of media, the twenty-two chosen through peer selection describe in their own words their life, work, and reflections on the role of art in society. Each artist was interviewed by the editors and responded to a series of questions about their background, their style and medium, and how Hawaii has influenced their creative endeavors.
These personal and revealing sketches are followed by four signature pieces of each artist's work. University of Hawaii art professors Tom Klobe and Duane Preble visited with each artist prior to selecting the works featured in this book. Two pieces were identified as "career best" and two as outstanding recent works. Artists/Hawaii presents a captivating visual statement of the remarkable individual style of these twenty-two artists.

The Hawaiian art world, writes James Jensen of the Contemporary Museum in his introduction, is "a contemporary melting pot, a complex and richly varied composite of many contrasting but coexisting elements: ethnic ancestries, cultural heritages, educational backgrounds, personal sensibilities, political views, and social outlooks." In Artists/Hawaii, editors Joan Clarke and Diane Dods and photographer Dana Edmunds address the work of 22 artists. According to Clarke and Dods, the interviews and photos "capture a personal picture of the artist and his or her work." Of the four pictured works per artist, two pieces were identified as "career best" and two as "outstanding recent works."
