“Woollards’s carved marble Supplicant captures the possibility of hybrid beings in a moving and elegant synthesis of human and avian bodies.”

– Marcia Morce, art critic, The Honolulu Weekly

“Over the years his unique works have consistently grown and developed in richness. His recent prints are graced with paper-collage elements. A painter and watercolorist as well as printmaker, Woollard imbues the works with a delicate, mysterious quality that resonates with an almost musical sensibility. Woollard’s colors and shifting forms are at once poetic and dramatic.”

– David Farmer, The Honolulu Advertiser

“George Woollard is continually blurring the line between watercolor, painting, and printmaking. His approach to making art is, “if it might work, try it”.”

– David Behlke, gallery director, Koa Gallery, Honolulu, HI

“Woollard is noteworthy as a serious artist who plumbs the possibilities of abstraction while never losing sight of the joy that comes with making art. The three new paintings are exemplary of that approach, each a celebration of color.”

– Virginia Wageman, art critic, The Honolulu Advertiser

“Woollard is, indeed among Hawaii’s most prominent fine artists. But he is also a revered teacher and a consummate philosopher. He is one of those rare people who has, all his life, made a living in art.”

– Paula Rath, The Honolulu Advertiser

“There is always something to learn from George’s sessions, whether you’ve studied with him for two months or two years.”

– Student, The Volcano Art Center
