LAHAINA – Lahaina Arts Society’s Banyan Tree Gallery is featuring artist Earl Thompson this month.

His show, “There might be Dragons,” includes a wide spectrum of works in pen and ink, acrylic on canvas and skateboards, as well as original aluminum grinding works.

Thompson was a fine arts major who trained in a wide variety of media, which is apparent in his body of work.

An opening reception for the show will be held on Friday, March 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Banyan Tree Gallery in the Old Lahaina Courthouse.

The exhibit will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through April 5.

Earl Thompson’s works include “Aloha Tako.”

“Fantastic Feather Creations” by Maui artist Ellen Levinsky will be exhibited in LAS’ Old Jail Gallery through April 5.

Levinsky is inspired by the beauty of the natural bird feathers (peacock, parrot, pheasant) she uses to make colorful pictures of dancers, butterflies, Hawaiian petroglyphs and abstract images. She enjoys recycling her junk mail to make textured paper for her art. Levinsky also makes brilliant earrings, hair clips, pins and necklaces with feathers.

The public is invited to meet her at a reception on Friday, March 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. She will be demonstrating in the Old Jail Gallery on March 12, 17, 24 and 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Lahaina Arts Society will also hold Fine Art Fairs in Banyan Tree Park on March 14-15 and 29.

Join the crowd for live music and check out the paintings, ceramics, photography, glass art, woodcarvings, jewelry and baskets. The art fair and galleries in the Old Lahaina Courthouse will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 661-0111 for information.
