Hui + MOS = Good Times!

We're thrilled to once again be partnering with Maui Open Studios, which will kick off its Upcountry weekend February 18th & 19th!

“We are the perfect fit for one another and we are looking forward to growing together to make our annual event better and better each year," remarks organizer Carolyn Quan on partnering with the Hui, "Educating the art-buying public about how the artists create their work and how they get their inspiration is one of the goals of the event. By partnering with Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center we feel like we've created a good solid foundation for this from the beginning. We look forward to a long, supportive relationship with the Hui over the coming years.”

Now in its 2nd year, Maui Open Studios offers artists an organized opportunity to open their studio doors to the general public during three featured weekends. Artists pay a small fee to be included in a printed program complete with maps, bios and samples of their work, plus a large website to reinforce the printed piece.

"This event is a great way to engage visitors & community in the Hui's Open Studio program. Access to work space is such a big issue for artists, both on Maui and beyond. For many, the Hui studios provide the only access to tools, equipment, space and artistic exchange. The result is a tight-knit community of artists that are accustomed to sharing their processes and stories with the public and with one another. We look forward to the opportunity to offer Maui Open Studios visitors a very unique experience when they spend time with us this weekend!" (- Hui No‘eau)

Hui No‘eau is open Saturday & Sunday from 10 am - 6 pm and will feature nearly 20 of the Upcountry Maui Open Studio artists. Entry is free, as always, and also offers walking tours of the historic house & grounds, the 2012 Annual Juried Exhibition in the main gallery, Patrick Dougherty's larger-than-life "On the Wild Side" Stickwork sculpture, and more.
