July 2015 Art Shows

Jeanne Young

Ka'anapali, July - Jeanne Young

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 210 NOHEA KAI DRIVE IN LAHAINA AT THE HYATT REGENCY RESORT PRESENTS PAINTER JEANNE YOUNG. COME MEET JEANNE AND WATCH HER PROCESS AND TECHNIQUES EVERY TUESDAY IN JULY FROM 4:00PM - 9:00PM.

I was born in Portland, Oregon, spent most of my adult life and some of my childhood in rural Alaska. In the area I was raised, there weren’t schools for the kind of art I wanted to make so I developed an education strategy for myself and eventually travelled to study under artists who had mastered the skills I wanted to have.

I’ve been showing professionally since 2004. I’ve won national awards for painting, have been commissioned to do life-size bronze sculptures, taught many workshops and classes. I came to Maui for vacation and was invited to join a gallery in Lahaina. I fell in love with the North shore, flew to Alaska long enough to finish a bronze sculpture commission, and came back to Hawaii to begin my new adventure.

I explore any subject and style that stimulates my artistic passion. Eventually I always seem to come back to people and all the beautiful ways that we engage with life. A favorite subject is people and water. The energy and power of the ocean combined with the seemingly effortless skill of surfers in the waves is so much fun for me to paint. There’s just something about taking all my old-school training and applying it to such a joyful pursuit that brings me great satisfaction.

Ian Haight

Lahaina, July - 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 JULY FROM 4:30PM - 7:30PM.

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!”

Claire Blahnik

Makawao, July - Claire Blahnik

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 1169 MAKAWAO AVE. PRESENTS PAINTER CLAIRE BLAHNIK AS OUR ARTIST IN RESIDENCE EVERY FRIDAY IN JULY FROM 11:30AM - 3:30PM. COME SEE HER PAINT WONDERFUL REALISTIC IMAGES OF MAUI’S GREAT LANDSCAPES, ANIMALS, AND MORE.

Every day, I am inspired by the beautiful island of Maui. I grew up on this island, only leaving for a few years for college to study watercolor. I excelled at it. When I moved back, I decided to dive into oil painting. I feel that oils capture the beauty of Maui more than other mediums. This has opened a new world for me. I am constantly learning and evolving with every painting. When I escape into my artwork, I enter another world where I can dwell for hours.

I am an avid beach goer, sun lover, and take pleasure in all Maui has to offer. My paintings capture the essence of the beautiful places I have surfed, swam, and played. In my work, I represent my favorite aspects of the island lifestyle and culture.
