This weekend is the third (and final) weekend of the fourth annual Maui Open Studios event. Check out their website and have a look at the artists opening their studio for you to come visit, watch them work, enjoy live entertainment and even refreshments, and perhaps buy something without involving the “middle-man”, the art gallery.
This weekend’s locations are all in Kihei and Lahaina. As I look over the list, a few jump out at me…. If I weren’t busy with family life, back to back bookings etc, I think I’d go check out these ones (see Maui Open Studios website for details and directions):
#66 Charlie Osborne – landscape photography in Lahaina
#67 Black Good – portrait and landscape painter in Lahaina
#73 Mary Anne Leigh – ceramics in Lahaina (this one looks really interesting)
#75 David Schoonover Photography in North Kihei (I can probably get to this one)
#78 Taryn Allessandro in Kihei intrigues me too – I love her photo, makes me curious as to what her paintings are like.
#79 Jan Shaner – oil painting in Kihei
Okay, now that I’ve looked…. perhaps I’ll have to make time. I know I won’t make it to Lahaina this weekend, but the Kihei ones I could check out…. better bring my wallet with me, I can’t resist…
