BEST ART EXHIBITION
The Schaefer Gallery is museum-like in its presentation and professionalism. They tend to favor Hawaiian artists, or art that is locally significant, but also feature exhibits with global relevance. Whether it’s the annual Art Maui exhibit, or the recent thought-provoking Brown & White installation, you can tell the gallery puts a lot of thought and effort into its programs, and the staff is always willing to walk a visitor through the many rooms and dimensions of the art they’re featuring. Open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Located at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, One Cameron Way, Kahului, 242-2787.
