Chris Larson

Hyatt, November-Chris Larson

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT THE HYATT REGENCY, KA’ANAPALI, PRESENTS WATERCOLOR PHOTO ARTIST, CHRIS LARSON, EVERY WEDNESDAY IN NOVEMBER FROM 10-1.

Chris Larson’s artistic journey began at age thirteen when she took an art class from her oil painter mother. Her journey continued merrily into watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, graphic design and photography. Chris says she loves how color, light and shadows visually define objects and enjoys using watercolors and acrylics to express that look in her paintings. She also enjoys taking her original photos through a series of creative processes and hand enhancements to get a vivid watercolor painting effect while staying true to the vision of her original image.

Luana Kama

Lahaina, November-Luana Kama

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 612 FRONT STREET IN LAHAINA PRESENTS WATERCOLORIST LUANA KAMA EVERY FRIDAY IN SEPTEMBER FROM 4:30PM – 7:30 PM. COME WATCH THIS TALENTED ARTIST CREATE PIECES LIVE IN OUR GALLERY.

"My name is Luana Kama and I love to paint! I enjoy painting with watercolor… I find it fascinating to see the pigments and water flow on paper. My favorite subjects to paint are people and flowers. I started taking classes several years ago when I became semi-retired. I had a wonderful teacher and found myself falling in love with watercolor painting and the various techniques that can be used to get different effects. I have not stopped painting since and still take classes. I have done commission work and have paintings on sale at Maui Hands Lahaina. I have lived in Lahaina most of my life and attended Kamehameha III School and Lahainaluna High School. I am part Hawaiian on my mom’s side and “Haole” on my dad’s side. I have always loved art and did take classes throughout my life but when I got married and started to raise my family (5 boys), drawing and painting were pushed to the side. Today, I’m still living in Lahaina and having a great time painting like crazy. My other interests are sewing, reading, cooking and baking, crafts, and I take classes and teach Hula."

Ian Haight

Paia, November-Ian Haight

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 84 HANA HWY. WELCOMES IAN HAIGHT AS ARTIST IN RESIDENCE EVERY SUNDAY IN NOVEMBER. COME BY AND WATCH THIS ARTIST INSPIRED BY THE OCEAN

Ian Haight was born on the island of Oahu and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii during the 1970’s. 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. 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 earned a bachelors degree in art from the University of Hawaii, Hilo. Besides art, Ian’s passion is the sport of surfing. “The Ocean keeps me so 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. Aloha!”

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 84 HANA HWY. WELCOMES AMY TESSIER AS ARTIST IN RESIDENCE EVERY WEDNESDAY IN NOVEMBER. COME BY AND WATCH THIS ARTIST CREATE HER WHIMSICAL IMAGES

Welcome to the dream world of Amy Tessier. Be prepared to be swept into realms of mystical creatures, watery dimensions, and celebrative regalia. Sweeping journeys with characters that evoke human kindness, friendship, romance, yearning mystery, nature, adventure and hope. Amy works quickly and from a meditative capacity. Influenced by Picasso’s work and sometimes similar to Chagall’s, her artworks range from pastels to watercolor and acrylics, frequently embellished with torn papers, gesso, shiny objects, foil and other oddments that may provide interest and dimension. Deeply moved by the illustrations of classic children’s literature, she has written, illustrated and published two children’s books.

Elizabeth Keller

Makawao, November-Elizabeth Keller

MAUI HANDS GALLERY IN MAKAWAO. WELCOMES ELIZABETH KELLER AS ARTIST IN RESIDENCE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6 AND 20 (THIRD FRIDAY). COME BY AND WATCH THIS ARTIST PAINT

Elizabeth Keller is a transplant from Cape Cod, Massachusetts who moved here five years ago. She is now a Haiku artist who loves the big panoramic view as well as the unusual vantages she gets from riding her bike up sections of Haleakala, around the back side of Maui towards Kaupo, and around West Maui. She has developed an ongoing series of what she calls "road paintings" that are smaller watercolors of beautiful curves and expanses of our many local rural roads. Ms. Keller goes for miniature detail and quirky subjects and formats. You might see her working on a small painting of an aloha shirt, a panorama of pineapple fields, a section of a winding road you recognize, or even a trompe l'oiel postcard.

Darkwater Knives

Makawao, November-DarkWater Knives

MAUI HANDS GALLERY IN MAKAWAO. WELCOMES DARKWATER KNIVES AS ARTIST IN RESIDENCE FOR THIRD FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20 FROM 5-8.

Kaipo was born into a military family and has been around knives his entire life. While serving in the military himself he befriended a local gunsmith who was also a blade smith. Once he forged his first knife, he was hooked. That was almost twenty years ago. Today he couples his passion for steel and his love of fine woodworking to produce masterful creations that complement each other. His goal is to produce knives that are a pleasure to see, touch, and use.
