Help celebrate East Maui Watershed Partnership (EMWP) and Viewpoints Gallery's 10th annual juried native species art exhibit--Malama Wao Akua.
Artists of all ages are invited to use Maui's native flora and fauna as the subject of their exhibit submission. The focus of the show is to raise awareness about native species on Maui Nui and the importance of its watersheds. Educational opportunities will be made available leading up to the exhibit to help artists explore and familiarize themselves with Maui's native plants and animals.
Hikes specifically for artists will be held in The Nature Conservancy's Waikamoi Preserve on July 26 and Aug. 9. Call (808) 573-6999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to sign up. Space is limited.
