October 2013 Art Shows

Amanda Scott

Paia, October - Amanda Scott

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 84 HANA HWY, PAIA PRESENTS ARTIST, AMANDA SCOTT EVERY THURSDAY IN OCTOBER FROM 2-5 PM NEW WORKS IN MIXED MEDIA (WOODBURNING, WATERCOLOR, ACRYLIC)

Amanda Scott has been a dedicated artist for over ten years. Her muse is usually the female figure, which she renders beautifully in a variety of ethnic contexts, primarily Polynesian. She is continuously learning new techniques from teachers, books and other artists. Her newest pieces incorporate wood burning techniques with an overlay of watercolor and acrylic paints.

Says Amanda,"I make art because for a while anything is possible and mistakes are sometimes beautiful. In the planning stage I am thinking, rational; however, as time passes I begin to merge with the painting. It’s a meditation to paint. As I make art I learn to see. I not only learn to see what’s in front of me, but I also explore within. The painting evolves and I evolve with it. Every painting I do is a teacher."



Devon Mastrich

Makawao, October - Devon Mastrich

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 1169 MAKAWAO AVE. PRESENTS JEWELER DEVON MASTRICH OCTOBER 18TH FROM 5-8 PM, DURING MAKAWAO’S 3RD FRIDAY TOWN PARTY. REFRESHMENTS SERVED, ENTERTAINMENT THROUGHOUT TOWN COME MEET THIS ENGAGING AND TALENTED YOUNG JEWELER.

The first time that Devon Mastrich was introduced to metal smithing, she knew that this was a passion that she would pursue. She graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and in the summer of 2006. The inspiration for her work comes from the simplicity of form and design, though the work is by no means simple. Her pieces are intriguing, many faceted, colorful and bold. Each one of her pieces starts off with sterling silver fabrication. She then often combines enameling and semi-precious stones to add color and dimension. While Devon has fun constructing her jewelry, she hopes the same is felt while wearing it.


Ian Haight

Lahaina, October - Ian Haight

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 612 FRONT STREET, LAHAINA PRESENTS ARTIST IAN HAIGHT HE WILL BE WORKING ON HIS BEACH AND OCEAN INSPIRED PAINTINGS EVERY FRIDAY IN OCTOBER FROM 4:30 – 7:30 PM.

Ian Haight was born on the island of Oahu and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii. As a kid, his mom would take him to the beach at every possible moment even though they lived 20 miles from the shorelines. He would surf all winter and fish all summer and draw waves while in class during school.

Ian earned a bachelor’s degree in art from the University of Hawaii, Hilo. His love for the ocean and the beauty of Hawaii began then and continues today. His bright realistic style reflects this passion with vibrant colors, exciting landscapes and Hawaiian wildlife portraits. Ian says “Lately I've been bodysurfing into big barreling waves at Makena Beach with my GoPro camera and then painting from these crazy photos!”

Besides his passion for art and surfing, art, Ian is a Team Ambassador for several surf related companies. “The Ocean keeps me humble, as you can never have it wired. Helping to heighten awareness of the special environment we have here is important to me. My art is one way of showing how beautiful and precious our environment is. I’m really stoked to be a part of Maui Hands!”
