ARTwalk Maui at The Shops at Wailea

Maui is home to such a prominent, thriving art community that it often surprises visitors. If you explore, you'll discover that the island is full of artists and its towns full of galleries. In fact, Lahaina has more art galleries per capita than any other town in the United States. Artists flock to Maui for inspiration, and visitors can hardly think of a more fun place to shop for a painting. All of these are the reasons why Maui has become widely known as the art Mecca of the Pacific.

If you're staying at our West Maui accommodations, the galleries of Lahaina and Ka'anapali are right at your fingertips, but if you feel like some extra adventure, you might enjoy heading to South Maui for ARTwalk.

The Shops at Wailea have recently begun hosting ARTwalk, an event that takes place on the first Wednesday of every month, from 6pm to 8pm. It features entertainment, fine art, and the chance to mingle with artists and fellow art enthusiasts. There's no charge to join the fun. All you need to do is show up, and you can absorb the remarkable creativity of the presenting artists, whose work features everything from paintings and glass works to handmade jewelry and island wood carvings.

The versatility of mediums found at ARTwalk helps to satisfy even the most selective buyers with specific tastes. Participants are encouraged to make their way through six art galleries, where they can meet the artists. The galleries include aFeinberg Gallery, Ki’i Galleries, Lahaina Galleries, Mouche Gallery, National Geographic | Fine Art Galleries, and Tasini Tiki Gallery. Surrounding these galleries, you'll find a collection of 70 shops and restaurants, including luxury brands and local favorites.

You can get four-hour parking for the event for just $5, which will go to a non-profit organization. If you need more information, you can visit www.theshopsatwailea.com. If you need help with your Maui vacation accommodations, you'll find our contact information at the bottom of the page. Mahalo!
