Some Great Upcoming
Local Art Events

MAUI HANDS OF LAHAINA PRESENTS:
WATERCOLOR ARTIST, LUANA KAMA

Every Tuesday in February from 4:30-7:30pm
at Maui Hands Gallery
612 Front Street
Lahaina, HI 96761

COME WATCH LUANA WORK ON ONE OF HER NEWEST WORKS OF ART.

“My name is Luana Kama and I love to paint! I enjoy painting with watercolor… I find it fascinating to see the pigments and water flow on paper. My favorite subjects to paint are people and flowers.

I started taking classes several years ago when I became semi-retired. I had a wonderful teacher and found myself falling in love with watercolor painting and the various techniques that can be used to get different effects. I have not stopped painting since and still take classes. I have done commission work and have paintings on sale at Maui Hands Lahaina.
I have lived in Lahaina most of my life and attended Kamehameha III School and Lahainaluna High School. I am part Hawaiian on my mom’s side and “Haole” on my dad’s side. I have always loved art and did take classes throughout my life but when I got married and started to raise my family (5 boys), drawing and painting were pushed to the side.
Today, I’m still living in Lahaina and having a great time painting like crazy. My other interests are sewing, reading, cooking and baking, crafts, and I take classes and teach Hula.”


MAUI HANDS OF LAHAINA PRESENTS:
PHOTOGRAPHER, SANDRA GREENBERG

Every Sunday in February from 10AM – 6PM
at Maui Hands Gallery
612 Front Street
Lahaina, HI 96761

A COLLECTION OF HER PHOTOGRAPHS FROM AROUND THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS WILL BE ON DISPLAY.

A Native New Yorker, Sandra had the opportunity to see the world from a multicultural vantage point, one she has always valued. That was one of the reasons Sandra and her husband finally settled down in Maui in 2007, after spending every summer on the island since 1990. Maui was the perfect island. Sandra studied painting and photography at Cooper Union in NYC and Art Therapy at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. It wasn’t until she came to Maui was she able to put some of that knowledge to use after 36 years as an educator. Spending time with the whales and honu brought her peace and awe at the wonders of nature, thus, creating the inspiration to photograph the beauty and movement of these animals in their environment. The journey started with her best friend and husband Martin, but the stars have her continuing with her faithful dog Mana.

The opening of the show coincided with the publication of “Chicago Brushstrokes”, his 108-page coffee table book illustrated with all of the paintings shown in the exhibition. The book has achieved wide distribution and is sold at the Chicago Art Institute and other prestigious locations.
Luby’s watercolor and oil paintings of Maui scenes have been displayed for nearly a decade at the Maui Hands galleries in Lahaina, Paia, Kaanapali and Makawao. He paints at a studio in Haiku and at various sites around the island..
Mort will wield his brush at the Lahaina gallery every Friday in February from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. He will also perform in the other Maui Hands galleries at various times through April 1.
A former magazine publisher and correspondent for The Associated Press, Luby has won more than 40 art awards.

His work is displayed in corporate offices, galleries and in private collections in more than a dozen countries.

“Maui artist with a flair for capturing the unique beauty of the magical Hawaiian Islands.”

Kathy McCartney is a local Maui artist with a flair for capturing the unique beauty of the magical HawaiianIslands and romance of the South Pacific. She paints “Tropical Expressions” of underwater sea life, landscapes with turquoise waters, heavenly moon, sunbeams and rainbow bridges that connect heaven to earth. Her fine art paintings are executed on canvas and most recently on metal. Kathy personally grinds the metal sheets to enhance her fine art paintings, bringing her art to an unmatched level of radiant beauty. Photographs of her art can only capture a portionof her “must see” pieces which vibrate and dance with the surrounding light as it hits the etched metal surfaces.
