While the weather was threatening to dampen our day, none of the artists or art patrons allowed that to happen! What a beautiful day. The paintings were spectacular and many sold. We’re posting images of all the paintings to share with you the caliber of paintings at the show this year. Just know that there will be another 23 freshly painted artworks on Wednesday, at the Kapalua Bay Afternoon Paint Out (3-6pm) and Art Sale at Montage Kapalua Bay (6-8:30pm) and 23 more paintings on Friday at the Royal Lahaina Beach Quick Draw (9-11am) & Art Sale (Noon-1pm) sponsored by Maui No Ka ‘Oi. In addition, 96 freshly created paintings will be exhibited at the Art to Heart Gala that evening 6-9 pm highlighting the award winners of the Best in Show, Best Body of Works, and Best Quick Draw cash awards. Sixteen other awards include Artists’ Choice, People’s Choice and sponsors’ awards that will be unveiled that evening as well. The Art to Heart Gala and Art Sale is a ticketed event ($195 per ticket) includes viewing and the opportunity to purchase a painting or two from the 96 paintings on exhibit, champagne reception, sit down main course (venison and fresh island fish combo), and a dessert ‘station’ with an elegant array of desserts.
