The Lahaina Arts Society (LAS), on Maui, Hawaii, is a showcase and training ground for local artists. LAS has been at the center of Lahaina and its art scene since November 14, 1967. It is now the oldest art gallery in one of the largest art markets in the USA. Since 1969, the Society has been located in the Old Lahaina Courthouse, an historic building in the center of Lahaina, down by the harbor. The building was constructed to form the seat of government for Maui, Hawaii, in 1859.
Lahaina Arts Society is an organization dedicated to supporting local artists launching their careers around Maui. LAS maintains two galleries in the Old Lahaina Courthouse building and sponsors several outdoor Fine Art Fairs under the historic Banyan Tree in Lahaina each month.
The Lahaina Arts Society Galleries are open daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. They are located at 648 Wharf Street, Lahaina, next to the historic Banyan Tree.
The Lahaina Arts Association, founded by Lahaina Arts Society, provides free weekly children's art classes held in several different sites in Maui County. On an annual basis LAA awards partial scholarships to Maui high school students who are interested in art.
