Join us on Sunday, Oct 7th at 8pm for a special art opening with California artist Christine Benjamin and music by Kanoa. Christine Benjamin is an artist born and raised in Northern California and loves all things Tiki and Hawaiian style. Being born in the 60’s her first Tiki experience was as a young child visiting Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room and she’s been hooked on Tiki culture ever since. When Christine starts to create her paintings or art dolls her Tikis, monsters, robots, skeletons and other creatures seem to take on a life of their own. Whether it’s an image of a Beatnik Tiki or a Hawaiian mermaid Christine’s creatures tell their own stories. We’ve extended this show through the end of November, so come down and check it out!
We are excited to announce the art opening of 18 year old, Kihei artist Dylan Keenan. Utilizing mixed media, this show is a reflection on a recent Bali trip and Indonesian culture. Mentored by Ed and Diane Lane, as well as her Maui High art teacher Robin Curammeng, Dylan will be attending Southern Oregon University for her bachelor’s in fine arts this fall. Join us as we send her off to school to pursue her artistic dreams. The art will be up and for sale the month of August.
Art Opening Thursday, June 7th at 9pm at South Shore Tiki Lounge with Annebelle Eastling.
“Characterized by bold lines and rich, vibrant color, Eastling paints sensual figures and passionate abstract lanscapes. Her work is rooted in introspection, the exploration of relationships and evocative healing experiences.”
Many of Annebelle Eastling’s pieces are painted on hand built stretchers made using linen; cured with rabbit skin glue and oil primers. Pieces have many rich layers that took several months and even years to dry.
