Top Local Art Show Now on Display at the MACC

What's New — By keithdevey on March 9, 2011 at 3:59 am

The Schaefer International Gallery, located at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center is now hosting the Art Maui exhibit, which showcases over 125 pieces or work from some of Maui County’s top artists. Art Maui 2011

 This is the 33rd annual running of the exhibit, and from my understanding, getting your work to appear in the exhibit is a very competitive and selective process (so you know whatever makes it onto the walls must be good!). View different stylings such as pencil drawings, glass sculptures, jewelry design, wood carvings, digital art, photography, and more.

 I was able to stop by the exhibit this afternoon and highly recommend it. Some of my favorite articles of work include a set of unconventional ceramic tea kettles, a hand-stitched celestial quilt by Beth Fox, and a colorful photograph of the plastic debris at the Maui Landfill. Pictured above is a glass ensemble created by Rick Strini located at the entrance of the gallery.

 This particular exhibit just opened to the public on March 6th and will run through April 2nd.  The gallery is open daily from 11 am to 5 pm and before any evening shows scheduled at the Castle Theater.  Admission is free!
