Local artist George Young will be in the Images Fine Art Gallery from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday to present some of his newest works and to demonstrate how he creates his impressionist view of island living.
Young began painting at an early age under the guidance of his father, who was also an artist, a teacher and a firefighter. "My dad would paint one day and put out fires the next," Young said. "That's the kind of atmosphere I grew up in."
A native to Newport Beach, Calif., Young has lived on or near the ocean for most of his life.
His time on Maui has enabled him to develop a style that captures the exotic island landscapes by blending vivid island colors with shadows and light in a style reminiscent of the bold impressionists of an earlier era, according to an announcement from the gallery.
Images is located in Lahaina, next to the Hard Rock Cafe. For more information, call 662-0884 or visit www.imagesinc.com.
