Looking for that perfect locally made souvenir? Sadly I have some news for you - chances are you won't find it at the convenience store, you know the one I'm talking about! Instead, check out the Art in the Park fair, hosted this Saturday (February 21st) by the Lahaina Arts Society under the Banyan Tree.
What will you find? Ceramics, original oils/watercolors/acrylics, hand-made jewelry, photographs, baskets, glass sculpture, fine-art giclees etc. Something for every budget!
Not on Maui this weekend? No worries - these fairs are held on several days each month. Meet the artists, check out the variety!
Can't make it to Lahaina for a fair? Check out the two Lahaina Arts Society galleries in the Old Lahaina Courthouse (right next to the Banyan Tree) - the Banyan House Gallery and the Old Jailhouse Gallery.
What is the Lahaina Arts Society? This is a volunteer organization which started in the 1960s, continuing to operate with a mission to promote the fine arts on Maui, host free children's art classes and offer partial scholarships to Maui's high-school students.
