Art Day in Makawao

20120802-154313.jpg
Today I had the privilege of wandering through a few galleries in Makawao. I started at the ViewPoints Gallery at the Courtyard in Makawao next to Market Fresh Bistro. There’s a magnificent show going on featuring quilts, paintings and beadwork.

20120802-154610.jpg
I was in need of a little inspiration and on Maui one can find it everywhere… The artists abound each with their own unique style. I wandered to Makawao town to check out Robena’s Gallery next to Maui Hands and was so inspired by her canvases.
