HERE WE ARE AT THE 3RD ANNUAL MAUI OPEN STUDIOS at the Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center, Maui.
We were in the GARDEN STUDIO again (and will be next year!) I love this cute little spot!
We had the COOLEST neighbors!
Randy and Becky Hufford! Randy took most of these lovely pictures, thanks you guys! see you next year!
We all had super fun! colorful art and colorful patrons!!
Our Open House at INDIGO GALLERY MAUI was a success!
We had a great time, met some fabulous people and sold some paintings and gifts!
This great guy "Duane" purchased an ENHANCED 'Welcome Wagon Pele" He was really fun to talk with and a collecter of fine art.
Our dear friends Sandy and Bob Lercare joined us and and shared the show by installing their beautiful ART GLASS!
We had so much space! Absolutely Beautiful light, Just the most perfect location in my opinion! 2 doors for great traffic! See the MAMA PELE TOTES, front left, and all the printed giclees, far right are the gallery wraps.
Much Thanks for all your help Keri & everybody @ the Hui!
Set up & ready to go on Day 1 of Weekend 2 - 2012 Maui Open Studios. The big, giant rug on the floor was an enormous hit!! We think we may have spoken to over 400 people & met oodles of wonderful contacts & other artists! It was so amazing for me. I'm still smiling! I could never have done this without my sweet husband (Eric is in the chair) who is my rock, handyman, framer & all around best person.
The Large format Imprinted shower curtains were a tremendous Hit! We can do any of my designs on them, made to order! People really loved these and ordered quite a few! These made the perfect room divider between Cee (great artist next door) and us.
We had fresh fruit, sangria and munchies....every hour or so, a small "gaggle" or "tribe" of age 5-7 year old little girls with muddy rainboots (It rained all weekend!) would storm through like little indians, eat all the fruit and cookies and leave!, moving out in the opposite direction........very funny!
We had a long couple of days of sharing and talking and standing 10 am - 6 pm. But actually it was up @ 5 am, so I'm having a sit next to my PELES.
We had our PELE Series STONE COASTERS for sale, along with pillow covers and FREE MAMA PELE TOTES (those were very popular!)
We offer beautifully made gallery wraps in assorted sizes, ask about ENHANCED GICLEE GALLERY WRAPS. Each one is an original!
Cee and I are taking a moment to get to know eachother between visitors.
What an amazing suprise!! My dear friend and fellow traveler, Sheila Kenny showed up from the San Diego, CA area!!! She bought some gallery wraps (one was "Behind Polli's #2" behind us!) and some other goodies!
I really wish I had taken more pictures of all my fabuloso friends who came to support me! You all know who you are, thanks so much! You all made this event worth all the effort! Muah!!
We Used our house as a gallery, not one wall left undecorated!
AND YES! MY BOOKS ARE COLOR-CODED, *sheesh! :)
This is my Beloved PELE Series.
Our Gallery Wraps are ready to ROCK!
3 racks of Giclees!
THE HALLS ARE HUNG WITH ART!
