2018 Mini Paintings Arriving!!!

2018 Mini Paintings are arriving - 'Olive Oyl takes on Bluto Herself' by Randy Sexton

The MPAPI Mini Paintings Silent Auction will be held on Monday, February 19 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, their travels, and style of painting. 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 with final bidding 8-8:15 pm. From 7-8 pm is a lecture by Jean Stern, Associate Director, UCI Museum and Institute for California Art. After the lecture, final bidding is 8-8:15 p.m.  Collectors asked us to reopen final bidding after the lecture.  Due to this change, be prepared that check-out time will be longer. If you purchase a painting at the Buy It Now price during the 6-7 pm time-frame, you may pay and take your painting at that time or pay early and leave the painting in the Snug Harbor Room with our team and pick up after the lecture. The Snug Harbor Room is closed during the lecture.  The Silent Auction is reopened at 8:00 pm for final bidding with the auction closing at 8:15 pm. This is your last opportunity to put your final bids for paintings you have interest in purchasing. Silent Auction closes promptly at 8:15 pm.  Come join us for an exciting evening.

Some of the images 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.
