Lauren Roth Autograph Session

The Ward Centre store will also host an in-store autograph session by local artist Lauren Roth on Sunday, November 20, from 1:00 – 3:00 PM. Roth is known for her vibrant watercolor painting and graphic art that feature Hawaiian motifs and nature. Her creative use of negative space and energy—as though her subjects are in motion—makes her work unique and a favorite among local and Japanese fans. Hakubundo is a proud distributor of Lauren Roth prints and accessories so there are plenty of items to buy and get signed by the artist herself—a perfect holiday gift idea.
