Although rather small in comparison to the rest of the country, Hawaii is exploding with talented artists of all mediums, and the Haleiwa Art Gallery presents a beautiful display of vastly different works by more than 30 of them. Located in the historic and world-renowned North Shore town of Haleiwa, the gallery is right in the middle of the bustle and excitement. Haleiwa is hands-down my favorite town on Oahu, and the legendary North Shore area is an absolute must-see on your visit to the island.
All of the artists featured in the Haleiwa Art Gallery are local, living and working in Hawaii. The diverse collection of mediums includes acrylic, bronze, embroidery, oil, watercolor, pastel, mixed media, glass, and more. An artist’s corner faces the sidewalk with large glass windows, and passerby can often pause and watch an artist at work.The gallery has something to please every artistic palette, whether you are looking for bright, bold abstracts, breathtaking landscapes, or beautifully-crafted glass figurines. A few of the artists include Al Furtado, Mark Cross, Keiko Thomas, Heather Brown, Mihoko, George Eguchi, and Sandra Blazel.
Haleiwa Art Gallery joins with other local galleries to present an Artwalk the last Saturday of every month, from 6-9pm. Visitors can meet the artists while they enjoy the art, appetizers, and live music.
