usually art stores have puffed up, dismissive staff. What a joy to see such lovely staff who talk of the art with appreciation and encourage you to enjoy it. This was a refreshing and lovely place.

We love looking at local artists work so we decided to stop here, but walking up we were a bit hesitant. However when we got inside we were amazed at all the wonderful artwork. The building is larger than it appears outside. Make sure you get through all the rooms so you don't miss anything.

Look at a list of things happening on the East side of Hawai'i and you'll see a bunch of free programs presented here. You should go and check out at least one of them. We went to a lei-making class, where we made ti leaf leis good enough to wear to the Brothers Cazimero concert later in the week. My... More

When you visit Volacano National Park on Big Island don't miss this beautiful galery of art located close to visitor centre. You can find there only local, original art and handcraft of local artists. If you are looking for original souvenir from Hawaii, you would find it there. I did!

When my husband and I visited the Big Island of Hawaii one of the places to visit on my list was volcano park. The whole island was a one of a kind experience since there were so many different biomes on one island. Volcano park and this island are definitely a must see for science and nature lovers.

What a gem this was in a little, historic building near the Visitor's Center at the Volcano Park. We decided to stroll over to it because we had some time on our hands and I ended up getting gifts for just about all the family members birthdays! The variety of works here - from prints to wood prints to wood... More

Seek this out. Tucked next to the visitor center, it features local artists. Most of the art was out of my price range, but I kept looking and found some well-priced block and photographic prints, plus some kapa that was lovely. Would love to come back if I ever hit the lottery.

Don't go in here, you'll be sorry! Tons of talent housed in one place. And very nice people, to boot!

We really enjoyed browsing through the local art works at the Volcano Art Centre. We managed to find a few bargains - one lovely print by a local artist, and one pair of Koa Wood earrings. Definitely worth the visit, especially if it's raining outside.

I enjoyed this shop. This was my second visit and a good place to relax after hiking. They had many gifts in price ranges a little steep for my budget and a few that were perfect. I thing that will depend on the availability of gift items.many were from the local area but definitely not all. Friendly staff. I got... More
