It all started when...

Hanalei Town is a magical place. It is home to many artists and beautiful Hanalei Bay. There used to be a fabulous collective art gallery there. It became a corporate surf shop. The General Store of Hanalei closed it's doors....the building had housed a gallery there for almost 50 years...it had changed hands a few times, but always remained an art gallery....when it closed in 2016....this virtual window opened, continuing to share the talents of wonderful artists.

Local artists requested continued representation and I am honored to represent their works.

Artists naturally receive inspiration from the beauty that surrounds them on this Island Paradise. Kauai is a special place. Naturally. Earth, Sea, Sky and it's inhabitants. Artists like to work with color. Kaua'i has a spectacular array of both; colors and colorful artists, creating original art using various mediums.

HanaleiArtGallery.com predominantly features Local Artists and hosts a few friends from travels in Tahiti and Texas.

A little bit about me, Terri: 

I host this site to represent artists. I moved to Kaua'i almost ten years ago and helped manage The General Store of Hanalei, as it closed.  I have a background in the arts: film, music & education. I am a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin, with a  B.S. degree in Applied Learning and Development with specializations in Art & French. I worked part time in an Austin gallery, for about 15 years, between feature films (I do makeup, skin care & hair too. kauaimakeupandhair.com), helped host openings, developed client services and general sales & daily business. The once tiny frame shop, grew steadily into one of the most respected, successful galleries in the Southwest today, all under the direction of a one woman powerhouse, Wally Workman Gallery. 

I enjoy traveling. I lived in Paris for year, working (in a salon) and visiting galleries & cathedrals abroad. I've also lived in Nashville for a year, Scotland for a year, have family in London & Tahiti is a favorite travel spot. I like to call it home too, however, I don't go anywhere as often as I think I might like, because I am happy on Kaua'i & kinda hate to leave... I have met some wonderful artists & am thrilled to share their works. Please let me know how I can assist you in acquiring art to add to your collection. Together, we can accommodate almost any request.
