New Atelier Art Gallery in Kīhei celebrates opening with Chromascapes exhibition, Dec. 28

The new Atelier Art Gallery in Kīhei celebrates its opening on Dec. 28 with a “Chromascapes” art exhibition and ribbon cutting ceremony.

“I’m thrilled to be opening the doors of The Atelier Art Gallery in Kīhei,” said Carolina Manchester, a Maui-local artist and owner of the gallery. “We aim to create a vibrant, inclusive space where art lovers and creators can converge and immerse themselves in the transformative power of art.”

The exhibition features intricate brushwork from Manchester and a vibrant palette utilized by fellow artist Jennifer Valenzuela. The influence of Maui’s landscapes are present in artwork by both artists. The exhibition also includes the ethereal and mystical allure of Maui Prayer Wands.
