Art lovers have a new reason to visit Hawaii: The Four Seasons Resorts Lanai have announced the fourth annual Impressions of Lanai Plein Air Painting Invitational, December 13-17 on Lanai. Hosted by Mike Carroll (pictured right), owner of the Mike Carroll Gallery, the event raises awareness of the arts.

The participating artists at the event are by invitation only. The ten painters will work to create unique works of art on canvas throughout four intense days of painting, including a “quick draw” where they must complete a masterpiece in three hours. Guests will have the opportunity to meet the artists throughout the invitational, including an Artists’ Reception at the Mike Carroll Gallery on Saturday, December 17 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.

The artists include Signature Members of Islanders, a highly respected invitational group of painters who record the life and landscapes of Hawai'i. Joining Signature Member Mike Carroll are Ronaldo Macedo, Pierre Bouret, Betty Hay Freeland, Macario Pascual, Carleton Kincade, Saim Caglayan, Jeni Prince and Darrell Hill.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will support two community organizations, the Lanai Art Center and the Lanai Animal Rescue Center.

Four Seasons Resorts Lanai are offering special accommodations rates starting at $248 per night at Manele Bay and $199 per night at The Lodge at Koele.
