2016 Mini-Paintings – Images Arriving

2016 Mini-Paintings, 'Beach Bathing' by Hiu Lai Chong

The MPAPI Mini-Paintings Silent Auction will be held on Monday, February 15 at the Pioneer Inn in Lahaina. This event is always a big success.  The artists bring a painting from home. It is intended that the image will convey a bit more about the artist and his/her home environment or their travels. Sales are consistently in the 80+% range with paintings selling near or above estimated value. . . so please plan to attend, browse, and select a painting to add to your art collection.

Viewing of the mini-paintings and bidding will take place from 6 to 7 p.m., prior to the lecture by Jean Stern, Executive Director of the Irvine Museum. Final bidding for the mini-paintings is from 8-8:30 p.m. Come join us for an exciting evening.

Some images of mini-paintings to be auctioned are below.  We will be adding more as the artists send images. Mini-paintings will be posted on Facebook as well.

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.
