A Selection of Original Artwork by Heather Brown for the 2011 Greenroom Festival in Yokohama Japan


I hope everyone had a nice weekend or LONG weekend if you were so lucky! I have received some requests for pictures of the original art that I brought with me to the Greenroom Festival for those of you who could not be there in person. Here is a selection of some of the pieces that I brought. Everything sold, but be on the lookout for new originals coming soon! 4 new originals are on their way right now to the Wyland Gallery in Kona, Hawai'i and I will be having a show at the Wyland Gallery in Haleiwa on July 9 where there will be some new original art as well.

Greenroom Festival 2011


Wow, some time has passed since I last posted. Things have been pretty busy, I just returned from Japan where we were for a week for the 2011 Greenroom Surf Art Music Festival in Yokohama Japan. This is the fourth time that I have attended the Greenroom Festival and I love to go back each year to check out the great artists from around the world, cool movies, fun music and best of all, sharing fun times with great old friends and tons of new ones that I meet each visit.
I was originally supposed to be in Japan for the second anniversary of the Heather Brown Gallery in Tokyo on March 27, but due to the events on March 11, we had figured that it was not the best time for me to be going to Japan for an art show so the decision was made to cancel. I felt so horrible cancelling for that week that I really wanted to make sure that I could continue to show my support to the people of Japan, so I released an original each week for donations to the recovery effort as well as many other donations for auctions , etc to help out but I still felt a bit empty as i wanted to have the personal connections with the people. When the time to make the choice of whether or not to go to Japan for the 2011 Greenroom Festival came up, I was positive that I would go, I missed the people of Japan so much, my friends, fans, collectors and everyone else that we seem to meet on each trip, it was time. Well we went out and flew into Haneda Airport and were greeted by the warmest friendliest most excited faces one could ever imagine, and that continued every minute of the rest of the week.
I am so lucky to have the greatest girls ever to work at my gallery in Tokyo and without the help of Rie, Yuko and Toyo I could never have pulled off such a huge feat. Big mahalo's to the girls and if you are in Tokyo, go in and tell them how great they are doing!
The show itself was a huge success with all of my originals selling out within the first few hours on the first day! I was so thrilled that everyone felt the love and aloha that i put into every piece for this very special event. The next few days were filled with heart touching meetings, lots of laughs and tons of smiles on the strong faces of the Japanese people. For 3 days, everyone could push the pause button on the devastation and news to enjoy time with each other. The best compliment i have ever received ever ever ever, was from the many people who had told me that times were so tough recently, with the deaths, the fears, the continued earthquakes, lack of news..... but when they would take a minute to look at my art they could bring their smiles back, their laughter, their life, even for just a quick moment. I am truly touched. I love you all and you all make me smile everyday of my life when i think about how lucky i am that people not only in Japan but all over the world have an interest in my art and that to some of you my happiness can come out of the picture and make you feel the same happiness on a daily basis. Smiles can cure all the ails of humanity, i hope i can continue to help and i know you will too!
Below are some pictures from the event that I liked.

Blue Magazine "Hope for Japan" Issue


 A few weeks ago I was asked to contribute to a special edition of Blue Magazine. Blue Magazine, for those of you who do not know, is the premiere surf magazine in Japan. I was actually honored a few years ago to create the art for one of their covers. You can check them out here: BLUE MAGAZINE

This contribution was for the newest issue of Blue, "Hope for Japan"

I created a new piece of original art for the magazine called "Waves of Aloha" it is a 10"x10" acrylic painting on stretched canvas. I have not released photos of it yet because I was waiting for the magazine to come out. Well I received the magazine yesterday and I have been so filled with hope and joy and positive feelings for the people of Japan since I set eyes on it and looked through at all of the pictures and contributions from such great artists, surfers and musicians. I am so happy to see so many people come together and unify as one to not only help Japan physically or monetarily, but also just to show people the tremendous support that we can have as people on this earth towards our brothers and sisters around the world. As people, we truly can drop our differences and come together to help each other out, lets all try and do this each day!

I am now going to post and sell the original piece of art, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the Japan Red Cross March 11 Disaster Relief Fund. You can find the art on my website and the picture below will connect you directly to it.

North Shore Oahu's own Heather Brow created this original art for the "Hope for Japan" issue of Japanese Surf Magazine Blue.  Available now with all proceed going to the japan Red Cross

New Original Art from the Heather Brown SOlo show at Wyland Waikiki 5.2.11


Big Mahalo's to everyone that came out to my Show at the Wyland Gallery the other night! For those of you who were not in Hawai'i, we probably had the worst storm I have seen in Waikiki in quite a long time. Thunder, Lightning, Pouring Rain and flooded streets (not the best recipe for an art show night) Even with all of that, the show was a huge success and I was able to meet so may new collectors as well as seeing some great old friends and collectors from the past.

If you were not able to make the show, here are most of the originals that were available.

Mahalo to the great people from the Wyland Gallery in Waikiki on Lewers st for making this show happen and helping to make it such a success!
