Meet the Artists


Over the next few months leading up to the Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational Feb. 17-25, 2018, we’ll be posting a short bio/introduction to each of our 2018 participating artists. Getting to know where they come from, their background, what their journey has been along their professional career path provides an encouragement to come meet them and view their paintings.  If inspired by their paintings, you might even go home with one.

The 2018 artist roster is comprised of artists from Oahu, Maui, many States in the U.S. Mainland, and one from Australia. We are committed to presenting the most experienced and talented plein air artists to our community’s art enthusiasts. Whether you are a local resident or a visitor to Maui, you will be impressed with the caliber of artists we are able to recruit.

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.
