For the Love of Art
It seemed as though art was everywhere in Kaunakakai last Saturday, as the Molokai Arts Center (MAC) hosted a gift fair and brunch next to Kalele Bookstore and the Saturday market. Artists offered everything from batik scarves and sea-glass jewelry to pottery, painting and purses, while Lono performed music accompanied by a troupe of hula dancers. The event was an opportunity for shoppers to purchase holiday gifts directly from local artists and musicians, who kept the profits, while also supporting future arts education programs at MAC via silent auction, lunch plates and other donations. MAC, Molokai’s first public art center, is being built at the Coffees of Hawaii location in Kualapu`u.
