Maui Open Studios Event
The Annual Maui Open Studios Event is a series of free self-guided tours of artist studios and exhibitions throughout the island of Maui. It kicks off with a festive Opening Celebration and Preview Exhibition on Saturday, February 1 from 5pm – 8pm at the UHMC Paina Culinary Arts Center in Kahului where visitors can meet many of the artists, preview their work, pick up guidebooks, enjoy live music, and complimentary wine throughout the evening. The Opening Celebration is followed by 3 weekends of artist open studios when the public is invited to visit over 100 artists at their venues. The art-loving, art-buying public enjoys one-on-one interactions with local and visiting artists and have the opportunity to learn about what inspires the them, talk story and purchase art directly from the artists. Venues range from art studios, galleries, homes, outdoor venues and other alternative exhibition spaces.
