Gallery Keoki Proudly Presents Keoki Flagg’s Three New Images

On Saturday, March 4, 2017, we had our new image release reception, January…Just Add Snow and it was a huge success!  The evening included a slide show presentation of recent trips to Revelstoke, British Columbia and Hokkaido, Japan, along with a new video showcasing the making of “Snowshore”, Keoki’s most recent pentimental stitch.  If you missed it, you can view the video here.

Check out a few images from the event!

Elemental is launched

Finally ,  after a journey of many years ELEMENTAL has been released.   Last nights gathering was an amazing celebration.  So many wonderful people have played their part in helping this long anticipated creative project come to life. The book has impacted all bringing an unmistakably new paradigm to Gallery Keoki.   Sharing this moment with the entire creative team, my family and so many friends makes  this path so worth while.

Thank You all!   Keoki

Great times in ALASKA, PNH style

Life in the Chugach expands ones imagination…It can easily be mistaken for the prize at the end of the Rainbow.  It has become an annual ritual for me…One that continues to test my boundaries, my patience, as I have come to see it as a personal test in perserverence.

On the second day weather set in so we busted out a different set of gear and headed out to explore the Sheridan glacier. It had been awhile since I had been there last, but it felt like little had changed. We spent the day playing on and inside of its surreal world.

Certain places touch us to the core, even in the rain.

Playing “PUPARAZZI ” at Squaw Valley’s Peaks and Paws Festival

This Year’s Peaks and Paws Festival was as fun as ever.  Our four footed friends came out in mass to celebrate yet another amazing sunny summer day in Tahoe.

Smiles, wagging tails and beautiful barks filled the air…bringing out the dog in us all!

I spent the day at there level on all fours being a dog.

Nothing like our beautiful beasts to remind us how to be human.

Elemental Hawaii

A huge thank you to all the friends and family who gathered at Gallery Keoki to celebrate the release of my new body of work, “Elemental Hawaii.”  It was an incredible night of with my Ohana.        You are a beautiful part of this journey… MAHALO

The artistic path to this moment has been an incredibly creative, serendipitous exploration.  It has drawn me with passion all over the globe… only to bring me back home to where it all began.

This is a new beginning… Sparked by new perspective:

In so many ways Hawai’i challenges stereotypes of mountain living,
and my art is defined by a paradigm of Mountain…
Live every moment, boldly explore life, taste, and translate emotion…
 
 
Aloha    Keoki
