Molokai Art Galleries

(Molokai, Hawaii - HI, USA)

Museum pictureLocal Hawaiian artists from both native residents and artists from surrounding islands are available at the main art galleries on Molokai. Part of the island's Big Wind Kite Factory, the Plantation Gallery is a great place to pick up a large colourful canvas or print, and is located within Molokai's town of Maunaloa.

Kaunakakai is also home to a small selection of noteworthy art galleries and in particular, favourites include the Designs Pacifica, where its beautiful crafted, hand-blown glass creations are a real highlight. With a very traditional Hawaiian flavour and art works by local artists from Molokai and surrounding islands, the Kamakana Gallery is regularly changing its stock and so there is usually something fresh to see here, including some gift ideas and affordable souvenirs.
