The Story Sticks: by Carol Bennett 

It occurred to me that surfing, like other daily practices, is always the same yet always different. Conditions, the tide, vibe in the water, and time of day vary–actually the only thing that is consistent is the surfboard itself, and if that surfboard could talk it would have stories to tell.

This is one of my three monolithic “Story Stick” triptychs, that I made anticipating my room at the Surfing Hawaii Exhibition, at the Maui Cultural Center. 

My son rides a $100 Costco Wave Storm, which I used for my template, so what you see is true to size. While I used a multitude of processes and materials, I wanted the dominate hit to be graphic. I carved big linoleum blocks, and a polka dot roller, my intent was to have patterning that is reminiscent of old school Hawaiian shirts and surf posters: Tommy Bahama meets Endless Summer. 

Quality. Beauty.

The quest for mastery.

These are the things I look for from the artists I choose to share with you.

When you make a purchase, you know you're buying innovative, original works from Hawaii's master artists.

Testimonials

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.
