The 2016 Artists’ Aloha Reception sponsored by One Main Plaza is the place to be on Saturday, February 20, 2016 – 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Village Galleries in Lahaina. The hours have been expanded from 2 hours to 4 hours to encourage art enthusiasts and collectors from throughout the island and that are visiting Maui to stop in to see some very special works of art. Come meet the artists, engage in conversation, view and purchase freshly created plein air paintings of Maui’s scenery, people, and buildings.
We will be exhibiting the 15 winners on a ‘wall of honor’. This opportunity will allow the viewer to study the various artists’ styles and contemplate why these paintings were selected from the 100 paintings for awards.
On Saturday, artists are allowed to replace sold paintings from Friday’s event, as well. Minimum artwork sizes are 8″x10″ and maximum size is typically 16″x20″. In addition, this year artists are allowed to exhibit ‘one’ larger painting not to exceed 20″x24″. We anticipate a morning full of friends viewing wonderful art. It is just a fun time to visit the gallery. Music an light refreshments and beverages will be served.
