"The ocean shapes our perceptions; we are oriented to her, to the mountains, mauka to makai.  Opuhala is the Hawaiian goddess of coral. She appears in mythology sometimes as a woman, and sometimes as a coral reef. According to legend, it is a shell from Opuhala’s reef that Maui makes his famous fishhook to draw together the islands.
Mohala i ka wai ka maka o ka pua – (Unfolded by the water are the faces of the flowers.)" - Heidi Buscher

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.

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.
