Kihei's South Shore Tiki Lounge will set the stage from 8 to 10 p.m. Sunday with an art opening for 18-year-old Dylan Keenan.
"We are excited to announce the art opening," says the South Shore's owner Alma Tassi. "Dylan utilizes mixed media, and this show is a reflection of her recent trip to Bali, where she learned about the Indonesian people and the culture."
Mentored by well-known and beloved Maui artists Ed Lane and his wife Diane Lane, as well as her Maui High School art teacher, Robin Curammeng, Dylan will attend the Southern Oregon University this fall for her bachelor's degree in fine arts. "Join us as we send her off to school to pursue her artistic dreams," says Tassi. "The art will be for sale the month of August. At the opening party, Kanoa will play live at 9 p.m." Call 874-6444.
18-year-old Kihei artist Dylan Keenan used mixed media on this colorful and peaceful Buddah done in the style of the Balinese. She says she was inspired from a recent trip to Indonesia’s exotic tourist destination, where art is a part of everyday life.
