Monthly ARTwalk Event Presented by The Shops at Wailea

Maui's vibrant art scene has just gotten more interesting with the launch of ARTwalk at The Shops, presented by The Shops at Wailea, here in South Maui. Local and vacationing art lovers now have a social event where they can come together and explore the works of notable fine artists. Conveniently, this is an ongoing event that will happen on the first Wednesday of every month from 6 to 8pm. That means whether you're living here full-time, part time, or you visit frequently, you'll have plenty of chances to join in on the experience.

ARTwalk is all about mixing fine art with entertainment. It also helps to give local Maui artists a well deserved spotlight, featuring a wide variety of mediums, such as painting, metal art, handmade jewelry, sculpture, photography, glass works and island wood carvings. If you'd like to explore the full spectrum of creative works, this is an excellent opportunity.

Another nice feature of ARTwalk is that it's free and open to the public, so if you enjoy art, the only cost is the time you choose to spend on the experience. There are plenty of shops and restaurants at the same location, when you feel like moving on, and there are also some gorgeous beaches nearby where you can watch the spectacular South Maui sunset. The galleries at The Shops include aFeinberg Gallery, Ki'i Gallery, Lahaina Galleries, Mouche Gallery, National Geographic, and Fine Art Galleries.

The Shops at Wailea donates 60% of their special event parking fees to a different non-profit each month. In March, that non-profit will be Imua Family Services, an organization that provides therapeutic services for infants, toddlers, preschool children, and their families. These services help ensure that these children get the developmental care they need to reach their full potential. As for the parking fees, you can either opt to pay $5 for four hours and support the non-profit, or you can choose the normal parking option, which gives you the first hour free. If you spend $25 at any one of their shops or restaurants, you can get validated for three more hours. If you don't get validated, it's just $3 per hour.

The Shops at Wailea features several other ongoing events, including wood carving and coconut husking demonstrations, polynesian dance performances, lei making and coconut frond weaving activities, ukulele lessons, and even free zumba classes. You can find out more at www.theshopsatwailea.com. Whether you decide to join in on the ARTwalk event or not, there are plenty of things to see and experience at this shopping center, and it happens to be situated on a beautiful piece of Wailea property near some of the finest resorts on the island. On that note, if you're in the market, you can find a stunning variety of Wailea homes and condos nearby as well. If you need our assistance with your search, you can find our contact info here. Mahalo!
