Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center

I'm a little bit late with my April news but still happy nonetheless to announce that as of April 1st, I am now selling some of my art at the Hui2 gallery located at the wonderful Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center in Upcountry Maui.

The Hui No'eau is a non-profit community-based arts center that offers both children and adults a variety of public workshops and classes, lectures, exhibitions, art events, historical house tours, as well as educational outreach programs.

The historic property located on the Kaluanui Estate which was once a sugar plantation sits on 25 acres and consists of the house where the Hui2 gallery shop and current art and historical exhibitions are located. The historic sugar mill, various housing structures, stables, carriage house, and garage have since been transformed into fully functioning working artist studios, exhibition galleries, and classrooms.

It's a great place to fill your lungs with fresh country air and be inspired by the stunning art and views of Haleakala and the West Maui Mountains. 

The Hui is located at: 2841 Baldwin Avenue, Makawao, HI 96768

Ali'l Kula Lavender Farm

Last week I visited the Ali'i Kula Lavender Farm located in Upcountry Maui 
at 1100 Waipoli Road, Kula, Hawaii

Kula is much colder and wetter than much of Maui due to its 4000-foot elevation on the slopes of Haleakala crater. You can see by the pictures here that it was misty and overcast. 

Relax and soak up the fresh air and serenity

The kids can go on a treasure hunt

While you find inspiration

Bring your easel or your sketchbook!

 General admission is only $3. Children under 12 are free. 
Kama'aina, Military, and Senior discounts are also offered.

You can walk on your own or go on a guided walking or cart tour

And don't forget to stop in the gift shop/cafe to warm up with some lavender coffee or tea.
I highly recommend the delicious lavender scones!
