This paper describes the events and work surrounding my Honors thesis exhibit, which was shown in the Department of Art's Commons Gallery at the University of Hawai'i- Manoa from April 8th, 2001 to April 12th, 2001. The title of this thesis exhibit was "Reflections on the Gift", and the show consisted of six mixed media sculptural pieces, ten handmade fabric banners and over two hundred screen prints of five different quotes or koans that I selected. The sculptural pieces were chosen and crafted as gifts with specific recipients in mind as they were given away after the exhibit ended. The prints were gifts for anyone viewing the exhibit who felt 'attached' to a particular quote or koan; they were welcomed (through labels) to take a print if they liked. The banners were given to people who asked for them when the show closed and was taken down.
