Carleton to visit Village Galleries
LAHAINA – Carleton will be the guest artist on Friday night, Aug. 24, at Village Galleries in Lahaina.
The gallery is part of the historic Baldwin Home Museum property located at 120 Dickenson St.
Carleton’s original oils are showcased at Village Galleries in Lahaina and Kapalua. All are welcome to meet one of Maui’s favorite plein air painters from 6 to 9 p.m. For more information, call 661-4402.
Carleton finds Lahaina’s landscape perfect for his plein air oil paintings of local subjects.
Always pushing his talents to better express his fascination with light and shadows, Carleton’s paintings are uplifting and optimistic.
He is an award-winning annual participant in the Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational, winner of the Lahaina Poster Contest several times and the first recipient of a private “Creativity Grant” in 2012.
He has been represented by Village Galleries for over 25 years.
Carleton’s enthusiasm is reflected in his energetic oils of “Life in Lahaina.” His confident handling of oils is evident as he captures Maui on canvas. From sunrise to sunset, his oils bring us the richness of the day.
“It’s been an exciting challenge to capture West Maui’s uncommon landscape,” he said.
“As the sun rises over the mountain, the early morning light shows the beauty of everything it touches. I’m drawn to the subjects in Lahaina that are undeveloped, showing Maui’s natural drama, and subjects showing our unique island lifestyle, especially the harbors.”
