Tickets Required for the Friday Collectors’ Event

In 2016, the third annual Collectors’ event will be held. It has been well received by collectors, artists, and event organizers. In fact, our event has become so popular that the crowds have outgrown the intimate space of the gallery. The collectors have asked for more time and space to view and purchase paintings. As a result, this year’s event will require a ticket, to be purchased in advance. The public will be able to view paintings the following Saturday in the Gallery.

One hundred paintings will be exhibited including the paintings from the Canoe Beach Quick Draw sponsored by Mala, Honu, and Frida’s restaurants. Minimum artwork sizes are 8″x10″ and maximum size is typically 16″x20″. In addition, this year artists are allowed to exhibit one larger painting not to exceed 20″x24″.

Tickets are $100 plus a processing fee of $5 per person of which $50 can be used towards the purchase of a painting and $50 is a tax-deductible donation to Maui Arts League (501c3) – the organization responsible for management of the event. The Collectors’ Gala event is being sponsored by Maui Prime Fine Foods, a gourmet market in Lahaina. They provide the best in fresh specialty meats, seafood, cheeses and wines. This evening will include gourmet passed hors d’oeuvres and beverages.

Watch last February’s video on YouTube and experience the excitement.

Tickets can be purchased now. Scroll down to complete the ticket request form. You will receive an email invoice for payment, allowing you to use your credit card.

Note: Collectors purchasing any of the 15 ‘award’ paintings are asked to leave their purchase/(s) and pick up at the gallery any time on Sunday. This is being done to showcase all the award winning paintings in one location within the gallery for the general public viewing on Saturday. Saturday gallery hours have been expanded to four hours from the usual two hour timeframe. See the Artists’ Aloha Reception section for details regarding event.

MPAPI Committee


Maui Arts League is excited to offer two plein air painting workshops in conjunction with the February, 2018 Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational. Both professional artists excel at ‘teaching.’  It is one thing to be a great artist, and yet another to be a superior instructor. Our workshop teachers are selected from the group of MPAPI professional ‘visiting artists’. Leon Holmes from Australia and Morgan Samuel Price from Florida will share their painting knowledge and techniques with  workshop attendees. You won’t want to miss out.
