Pauole to be featured artist at coffee festival


The 39th annual Kona Coffee Cultural Festival, with its theme of “Kona Coffee – Aroma of Aloha,” will feature artwork by Sunny Pauole on festival collateral pieces including button, magazine, poster, retail and Web site. 

Pauole was the 2008 Gevalia Kona Coffee Art Exhibit winner for “Coffee-Picking” two-dimensional painting.

“Kona and its coffee are a tight-knit community and the inclusion of an art exhibit as part of the festival has been a great opportunity for our local artists,” she said. “I’ve been painting most of my life and being in Kona for 20 years has nourished my creativity. Just like coffee, I have grown well here too!”

The Kona Coffee Cultural Festival is recognized and supported as a ‘Major Festival’ by Hawaii Tourism Authority as the festival showcases Hawaii’s unique culture and diversity. 

HTA was created in 1998 to ensure a successful visitor industry well into the future. Its mission is to strategically manage the growth of Hawaii’s visitor industry in a manner consistent with its economic goal, cultural values, preservation of natural resources and community interests.

The Kona Coffee Cultural Festival is supported by UCC Ueshima Coffee Company Ltd, Gevalia Kaffe, Kamehameha Schools, Keauhou Resort, KTA Super Stores, Sunra Coffee, county Department of Research and Development and numerous corporate and community donors.

Pauole’s artwork is featured at Pacific Islands Gallery in Holualoa located on the Mamalahoa Highway.
