The Shops at Mauna Lani presents “Art in The Park,” a live art auction featuring collections by Lahaina Galleries, Third Dimension Gallery, Kozy’s Tiki Gallery and The Fine Hawaiian Gift Gallery. The event takes place Saturday, April 1, in the central courtyard area, commencing with a reception at 5 p.m., provided by The Blue Room Brasserie & Bar and Monstera Noodles & Sushi. The auction will be led by Brent Hawley with music provided by Dave and Maile Lee Tavares.
During the reception, guests will be able to meet and talk story with artists Brad “Tiki Shark” Parker, Jacob Medina and Richard Rochkovsky, while Rod Cameron personally paints a piece that will be offered to the highest bidder later in the evening. The auction highlights a compilation of paintings and sculptures of the featured artists as well as other works from the galleries.
