If you are a visual artist or artisan, this is a great opportunity for you to show, sell and exhibit your work in your own studios, gallery spaces, exhibition venues and spaces that you create for this event. We want all creative individuals in the visual arts, whether full-time or part-time, to be able to share their creations and creativity with the public. That's the essence of this event. Students, emerging artists, established and world-renowned artists are all welcome. All artists working in any visual medium are encouraged to register including but not limited to photographers, painters, jewelry designers, ceramic artists, filmmakers, multi-media artists, graphic designers, metal artists, sculptors, fiber artists, printmakers, digital artists, wood carvers, textile designers, illustrators, body painters, etc. You create your space and the experience that the public will have when they enter your space, whether it's in your own backyard garden, at a retail art gallery or in your pickup truck parked in your driveway.

This will be the most fun, creative, innovative art event on the island of Maui and offer the local residents and tourists a very unique and exciting event to add to their yearly calendar.

Here are some ideas, tips and recommendations to help make your participation unique, special and successful.

Turn your home into an art gallery or exhibition space
Rent a nice venue to show your work in
Ask your relatives who live in that huge mansion on the ocean to lend you their home for the weekend
Have your dentist give you some space on their office wall for the weekend
Set up a gallery in your back yard
Hang your work in an alleyway on the side of your landlord's building (we recommend getting permission first)
Have guests sign a guest book to build your email and mailing lists
Have a raffle to help build your lists
Invite friends and family over to build a crowd
Follow up with those who show interest in buying your work in the future
Team up with artist friends and share a space together (registration fees are per person)
