Growing up on Hawaii Island, Mark Ley has spent every spare moment in the ocean. Diving, surfing and exploring. When his daughter came along, he shared his love of the ocean with her and over the years, his ohana developed their own form of treasuring hunting. They scour the reefs and beaches, gathering the bits and pieces left behind by other ocean explorers. And surfboard fins, stuck in the reefs, became a favorite find.

"This gyotaku style surfboard was made using a 442 model shaped by Hap Jacobs in 1961. A family heirloom, I couldn’t resist taking this 9 ft board out as an over eager teenager in the late 90’s—and promptly dumped it nose first into the reef. It lived in the garage rafters for 25 years before I resurrected it and began using it as the base for a new set of paintings." - Mark Ley

Sophisticated, warm, friendly and features true art. Not the boiler-plate samples one sees in Honolulu or Kona, but beautiful varieties of truly fine art. Sculptures, carvings, blown glass, photography and paintings. An elegant display of thousands of hours of dedication.

This is the nicest gallery on the island featuring local and Hawaiian artists. Beautiful collection and a lovely owner who authored several books about the local artists. She is a great resource.
