With Panna Cappelli, Amanda Dellinger, and Jim Powlan
The 2019 Art Maui Symposium will be held on January 13 in the Alexa Higashi Room at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center from 2pm to 4pm.
This interactive symposium provides tools and resources for showing your art with intention, confidence, and success in the state of Hawaii. Presented by Panna Speas Cappelli of Maui Hands, Amanda Michele Dellinger of Arts Enabler, and our featured guest artist, printmaker Jim Powlan. Panna and Amanda have developed a comprehensive statewide exhibition space directory including galleries, alternative spaces, public art, and more, as a printed takeaway for everyone who attends this special event. We will discuss four key components to review before searching for or committing to an exhibition opportunity: Eligibility, Audience, Community, and Alignment. This symposium is essential for the undiscovered, emerging, and established artist.
Panna Speas Cappelli is 30 year resident of Maui and the owner of Maui Hands galleries. The galleries are in Makawao, Paia, Lahaina and Ka’anapali. The first gallery in Makawao was opened in 1992. Panna has a business degree from Florida College of Business.
Amanda Michele Dellinger is a Kahakuloa-based artist, curator, and arts administrator. She recently moved to Maui from Seattle where she was the Gallery Manager at Pivot Art + Culture, a museum she helped launch in 2015. She is currently in the process of launching her own business, Arts Enabler, which focuses on assisting artists with their professional art practices, gallery management consulting, and inspiring collectors to buy more art.

Her life pursuit is to create opportunities for artists through connectivity and education, and to engage the public in non-traditional ways.
