The simple objects in life can evoke a sense of serenity when translated through the strokes of painter Robena.
But don't take Viewpoints Gallery's word for it. Come out and experience it for yourself, gallery organizers said.
A collection of her work is on display at Viewpoints Gallery in Makawao through Nov. 18, with an opening reception at 6 p.m. Saturday.
Robena’s “Love of Clarity”
"Robena takes the seemingly simple objects of our lives and finds the glorious elements within, creating majestic pieces of art that captivate and attract - visions that are as refreshing as they are unique," said Viewpoints Gallery art consultant Peter Rehfuss.
"Known for her powerful use of size, color, and composition, she has created a series of paintings that are dynamic, beautiful and subtle," he said.
The gallery is located in The Courtyard in Makawao at 3620 Baldwin Ave.; for information, call 572-5979 or visit www.viewpointsgallerymaui.com.
Artist Andrea Razzauti will be featured from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Friday at Lahaina Galleries' 828 Front St. location in Lahaina town.
Then, meet plein air artists Sue Perry and Ronaldo Macedo on Wednesday from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. during "WOW! Wailea on Wednesdays" at Lahaina Galleries' location in the upper level of The Shops at Wailea.
Living on Maui for more than 30 years, Perry has refined her work that uses only a palette knife to apply oil paint to canvas.
Macedo was born in Rio de Janeiro and has resided in Maui since 1989. His harbor scenes, plantation houses and beaches draw from history and tradition.

The theme, inspired by Tibetan prayer flags, moved artists to depict their own interpretations of spirituality within a square format. For information, call 573-6000.
