George Young will be the featured artist from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday at Images Fine Art Gallery in Lahaina.
Young, who studied art under the guidance of his father, has lived most of his life in and around coastal locations all over the world. His love of the ocean and warm tropical climates eventually brought him to the island of Maui where he now lives with his wife, Linda. Young's oils are primarily images of tropical paradises, catching shadows and lush tropical scenes captured in vivid color and his trademark style.
The night will feature pupu from Ruth's Chris Steak House and California wines, along with music by Scotty Baird of Crazy Fingers. The gallery is located on Front Street, directly behind Hard Rock Cafe. For details, call 622-0884 or visit www.imagesinc.com.

Vicky's creative design ability and attention to detail combined with Tim's technical knowledge and passion for utilizing the best equipment available has allowed them to create this new form of art.
