Winter Session & Annual Juried Exhibition

January 31, 2011January marked the launch of 48 winter classes & workshops at the Hui, serving 512 students of all ages and 7 visiting artists from New Hampshire (Kiranada Sterling Benjamin), California (Robert Regis Dvorak and Kathleen Alexander), Tennessee (Kit Gentry), England & Japan (Dorothy Feibleman), Utah (Jeff Juhlin), and neighbor Hawaiian Islands (Gordon Uyehara) and open studio users in long-term, sequential-based arts education and studio practice. We happily kicked off the year in exhibitions with record-breaking art submissions for the Annual Juried Exhibition as we welcomed guest juror Vincent Hazen, Director of the Academy Art Center at Linekona: “It was instantly evident the love that Maui artists have for their island with heartfelt landscape concepts and colors that became love poems for Hawai'i,” remarked Hazen, “Thank you for inviting me to be a part of this event- it was a privilege. Keep making art and showing it to your friends. Make art part of your everyday routine; it makes a difference in the quality of our lives.”
