Maui artists Jefferson Stillwell and Leslie Granat will join forces for an exhibition of their uniquely different creations in a visual show they are calling "The Odd Couple" at the ProArts Playhouse in Kihei.
Stillwell is an award-winning artist with works in the State of Hawaii's permanent collection and has had his work on display at Wailuku's Main Street Bistro for several years. His whimsical, humorous art has been regularly selected to appear in the prestigious Art Maui exhibit.
The temporary coupling with emerging artist Leslie Granat blends Stillwell's witty friends with Leslie's romantic watercolors.
