Maui Fine Art Gallery has opened a second location just in time for the holidays. The new store at Queen Ka'ahumanu Center carries everything from art for the collector to simple gifts for holiday shoppers.
Specializing in local art, the gallery supports over 25 established and emerging Maui artists. Some of the more recognizable names in the gallery include oil painters Anna Good and Anna Keay.
"My thick and rich impasto wet-on-wet palette-knife work appears as sculpture--rich in texture and color-- that uniquely arouses the sense of touch," said Good, who was recently published in "International Contemporary Masters, Edition VI" and will also appear in the upcoming edition.
Maui Fine Art Gallery has opened a second gallery at Queen Ka‘ahumanu Center.
"I search for the perfect flower--finding that unique detail in nature, that lustful scent of each petal, delighting the eyes and soothing the soul," said Keay.
John Lindquist, Justin Brown and Randy Schaffer are just a few of the glass artists represented by the gallery.
"We create each glass piece with the 'breath of aloha,' infusing it with our love for the islands and its inhabitants," said Schaffer.
Mark Mackay and Will Hererra adorn the gallery's shelves with their ceramic koi fish and whale tails.
Photographers represented by the gallery include Mark and Shayla Middleton, whose captivating photos are printed on canvas, and Tracy Tegarden, whose photography is printed on aircraft aluminum. The photos are views of the beautiful, remote regions of Maui.
"The Earth lives and breathes as we do, and there is beauty and rhythm to life," said Tegarden. "Bringing it closer, sharing it, for all of us to view is my objective."
The gallery is open daily during the center's hours of operation.
The gallery's Kihei location is at 2439 S. Kihei Road, Ste. 115A, in the Rainbow Mall below Cafe O'Lei.
