Art Maui ... annual exhibition celebrates island art
Celebrating its 31st year exhibiting Maui's extraordinary growing community of visual artists, Art Maui brings forward a wide range of contemporary work, including drawing, painting, sculpture, mixed media and digital technology in this popular annual juried exhibition.
This year's juror, Lisa Yoshihara, will lead a walk-through from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday. If you would like to hear firsthand what a juror looks for in selecting artwork for a fine art exhibition, you won't want to miss this opportunity. This event is free and open to the public.
“Beyond the Threshold”

Returning this year is the Art Game, an interactive scavenger hunt that encourages children to look at artwork, find elements and match them to a close-up fragment on a card. Larger groups are welcome; call 243-2787 to coordinate a visit.
