        The Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery is pleased to offer the newest works by Washington State native and well respected Hawaiian artist, Kim Starr.

This new exhibit, "A Personal Reflection" is a collection of new and past paintings and drawings that have never been exhibited before and showcase the high level of expertise that Kim Starr possesses. These are jewels on canvas spanning still life's and the romantic impressionism that she is so well known for.

Kim Starr, a native of the northwest with a natural artistic ability pursued and excelled in a career in professional illustration and advertising in her years after college.

In 1981 she and husband moved to the island of Hawaii. For five of the nine years they lived on the island of Hawaii and resided in Holualoa on the west (or Kona) side of the island. It was in April 1984 that Holualoa became the first location for Kim Starr Gallery showcasing her romantic impressionism exclusively. In January 1997 Kim and her husband opened a second Kim Starr Gallery in Hanapepe, a small historic town on the south-west corner of the island of Kauai.

The Hilton Hotels, Sheraton Hotels, The Villas at Mauna Kea, Punahou Cliffs, Commodore Club, Honolulu, are a few of the larger projects that Starr has been commissioned for featured paintings. Mr. Ian Snowden, fine art appraiser, commissioned Kim Starr to create a painting with a celebrated piece of silver from the Snowden Collection. This painting was completed and featured a "Silver Flask" from George Bernard Shaw to Howard French, New York. The painting is now in the Snowden Collection
.
Starr's most recently commissioned work is a pair of large oil paintings on canvas which hang in the entry of the newly remodeled Sheraton Waikiki Resort Hotel lobby.
Kim Starr is one of the preeminent painters of Romantic Impressionism bordering Realism. Her meticulous attention to the figure, combined with the artistic sensitivity of earlier masters, results in contemporary works of unparalleled beauty. Critics have said that her work elicits an immediate emotional response. Viewers are drawn into the image and surrounded by its elegance. It is obvious that they are in the presence of a modern master.

In the last 35 years, Kim Starr has created classic paintings and works on paper for corporate and private collections and her extraordinary art hangs in public spaces, world-class resorts and homes throughout the world. The success of her exhibits has been overwhelming.

While much of her life as a painter has been in Hawaii, today Kim continues to create jewel-like masterpieces in a small community in northwestern Washington State, and collectors everywhere continue to seek out and acquire her works.
