2017 Mini-Paintings Arriving

2017 Mini-Paintings, Carl Bretzke

The MPAPI Mini-Paintings Silent Auction will be held on Monday, February 20 at the Pioneer Inn in Lahaina. This event is always a big success.  The artists bring a painting from home. They are no larger than 8″x8″. 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 90+% 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 pm, prior to the lecture by Jean Stern, Executive Director of the Irvine Museum Collection University of California – Irvine. Lecture is 7 to 8 p.m. The final bidding is 7 p.m. MPAPI volunteers will process the paperwork and have purchases ready for pickup after the lecture. Come join us for an exciting evening.

Some of the mini-paintings in the auction are shown below. We will be adding more as the artists send in 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.
