Contemporary art talk story series


Ever see a work of art that moves you and wonder, “what’s the story behind it?”

Tiffany DeEtte Shafto, founder of Tiffany’s Art Agency, with a showroom in the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, is sharing those stories.

Working with master artists from across the state, Shafto is hosting a Contemporary Art Talk Story Series at her showroom each Saturday through Feb. 28.

Only 30 minutes long (11:30 a.m. ­- noon), each event features a different artist discussing the inspiration and story behind a specific work of art.

If you can’t make it to the showroom, the series is being filmed so you can watch the highlights at

While there, shop for more original works exclusively available on the website, see who’s coming up next, and watch the first videos in the series that began Dec. 6, 2014.

“When you learn about the creative processes from the artists themselves, you often find new inspiration and appreciation,” Shafto said. “It inspired me to create a way for collectors to connect and share in these inspirational stories.

Creating excellent experiences for collectors and artists is the driving force behind Tiffany’s Art Agency.

“Documenting the stories of these artists, and witnessing the response from people who fall for their work, is pretty amazing,” she said. “I am grateful for the response to date and am looking forward to two more months of talking story with artists in this series.”

The showroom is open daily (9:30 a.m. -­ 6 p.m.) in the lobby of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, 62­ 100 Mauna Kea Beach Drive, L101, Kohala Coast, HI 96743.
