The Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center celebrated the opening of its Annual Juried Exhibition last Friday with a packed house at its historic Makawao property.
Nationally renowned guest jurors represent respected curators and artists from Maui and beyond, offering a different perspective for a unique and fresh show every year.

This year the Hui welcomed jurors Inger Tully, curator of Exhibitions at The Contemporary Museum in Honolulu and Theresa Papanikolas, curator of European and American Art at Honolulu Academy of Arts.
"This year's submissions offered a snapshot of a lively art community and revealed trends as well as outstanding individuals," Tully says.
The exhibition is on view now through Feb. 18. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

Attention all art collectors: LaRue Trudeau, a unique collection of Asian and Hawaiian art, antiques and accent pieces, is holding a fine art sale with many items drastically reduced from their original price.
Located at 2020 Main Street in Wailuku, the collection is only available on Maui for a limited time. The sale will begin today and will last through Jan. 30, when the company closes its doors on Maui.
Many of the pieces in the LaRue Trudeau Collection were originally acquired by Chris Hemmeter, a renowned developer on Maui and an avid art and antiques collector. Hemmeter's collection gained notoriety throughout his life and subsequent passing.
With many of the pieces now housed at LaRue Trudeau, the collection ranges in size from small accessories to large-scale antiques. Not limited to antiques alone, LaRue Trudeau is also discounting numerous works of original art from famed Hawaiian painters Hiroshi Tagami, John Young and Lau Chun, as well as an array of other accents and accessories.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for any art or antique enthusiasts to acquire a piece of Maui history," says co-owner Lorraine Mull.
For details, call 651-7061 or visit www.LarueTrudeau.com.
