Join us during the Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational (MPAPI). For 9 days you will be able to watch 23 acclaimed artists create artworks that will be inspirational and memorable. Whether watching the artists create their paintings, strolling through the ‘outdoor’ galleries during the paint outs, or attending the art sales, you have the opportunity to view as well as buy original art at affordable prices. With 18 art events and 4 art sales there are plenty of opportunities for you to embrace fine art. The arts sales showcase 23 paintings at each of the three paint out sales and 90+ paintings at the Art to Heart Gala. Monday, February 18th provides the community an opportunity to attend an art lecture, ‘Painting Everyday Life’ by Jean Stern, Assoc. Director UCI IMCA. The lecture is held in the Pioneer Inn Courtyard. In addition, the popular Silent Auction is held in the Snug Harbor Room at Pioneer Inn that evening as well. The mini paintings, brought from the artists’ home studios, provide an opportunity for those wanting to purchase a treasured artwork from one of their favorite artists or to start your personal art collection at affordable prices. Auction opening bid is ½ of retail or $400 whichever is higher. The buy-it-now price is 125% of the retail price set by the artist. View our schedule and plan to attend the Art to Heart Gala, the ultimate ‘Celebrate Art on Maui’ event where you will view an expansive exhibit of 90+ original paintings of Maui, it’s landscapes, it’s people, and our unique plantation style buildings. Hope to see you soon.
