Nadine Ramelb

Paia, March - Nadine Ramelb

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 84 HANA HWY, PAIA PRESENTS FINE ART PAINTER, NADINE RAMELB, EVERY WEDNESDAY IN MARCH FROM 12:00 TO 5:30 PM.

Purely self-taught, Nadine Ramelb’s artistic expression has evolved from the inspiration of the paradise of Hawaii, where she has lived for the last 27 years. Her watercolor style is free form blends and bleeds of lush color applications without pre-penciling. Her beautiful new scenic series is created in acrylics using her signature strokes.

Baz Maui

Lahaina, March - Baz Maui

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 612 FRONT STREET, LAHAINA PRESENTS MIXED MEDIA ARTIST, BAZ MAUI, EVERY FRIDAY IN LAHAINA 4:30-7:30 PM. A TALENTED FIBER ARTIST, BAZ WILL BE WORKING WITH MATERIAL DIRECTLY FROM NATURE INCLUDING BARKS AND LEAVES.

Baz is a self-taught artist with over 20 years of experience. Originally from Saint Vincent and the Grenadines he was influenced by his father, a skilled carpenter and guitar maker, and the vibrant colors and form of Caribbean art.

In 1989, Baz was crowned Southern Caribbean Windsurfing Champion. He then moved to California in 1999 to pursue a career in windsurfing and from there moved to Hawaii, where he taught windsurfing at Anaehoomalu Bay in Waikoloa on the Big Island. Since his move to Maui, his art has evolved into using natural material from local Hawaiian plants to create rich mixed media scenes. Whether a piece is mountain, ocean or volcanic themed, his goal is to capture a true essence of the natural beauty of the Hawaiian Islands.

Victoria Wundrum

Makawao, March - Victoria Wundrum

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 1169 MAKAWAO AVE. PRESENTS FINE ART PAINTER VICTORIA WUNDRUM EVERY TUESDAY IN MARCH FROM 11AM TO 3PM. A LARGE SELECTION OF ORIGINAL WATERCOLORS AND REPRODUCTIONS ON METAL WILL BE ON DISPLAY.

A multi-talented artist, Victoria Wundrum paints beautifully in watercolor, oil, acrylic and pastel and also creates jewelry and mixed media constructions. She says of her recent body of watercolors “I love the combination of control and abandonment. Carefully painting clear water on a detailed space and then dropping pigment and watching it move and settle into the thick, textured paper is wonderful. I love the bright clear colors that can be captured with watercolor.”

Victoria is from the Pacific Northwest and has had the opportunity to live in Japan, England and various places on the Mainland. While living in the Los Angeles area, she wrote and illustrated a children’s book, “The Stick” which is available on Amazon.

Dr. Joie “Yasha” Taylor, in 2013, was pleasantly surprised when she found herself so quickly a successful jeweler. She is also a meditation guide, dancer, musician, and has Ph.D in engineering from Cornell University. Her experience with meditation is supporting a keen focus and attention to each piece, her experience with dance and music frees her spirit, opening her innate creativity and her world travels inspire the ancient design influences in her fresh contemporary pieces. Her jewelry is so unique that many look at it and smile delightfully commenting, “Oh It’s so beautiful and so different!” No two pieces that are the same, she honors the uniqueness of each being. Her designs incorporate gemstones and fine beads with gold and silver metal forming techniques. Dr. Joie states “Gemstones and metals carry a specific quality that enhances physical, mental and often spiritual properties for sensitive souls. The aesthetic design of these pieces brings the inner beauty of the wearer to the surface.”
