We stopped by Mike's gallery and enjoyed looking at his artwork and visiting with Mike. He is a wealth of knowledge and has some great art!
Mike is a terrific artist and a warm friendly guy. He clearly loves to share his knowledge of Lanai with anyone who visits. The gallery contains lots of his art (as well as work by other local artists) and also jewelry, textiles, etc. Prices are very reasonable with small prints starting at around $18. This is a good place to... More
Mike was most welcoming, in addition to the talented artists he shows in the gallery. Well worth a stop by!
met Mike Carroll who was wonderful to talk to and gave us 3 great sightseeing tips: a stand of rainbow eucalyptus trees (in close driving distance to the Koele Lodge), how to find the old Hawaiian cemetary (also in the same general direction) and the Kapiha'A village (close to the Menele hotel location). The shop displayed wonderful paintings and art... More
Aloha Marion W, Mahalo for your review! As we often say, we're "part gallery / part concierge", and we truly enjoy helping guests discover the beauty of Lana'i. Thanks too for mentioning the work in our gallery--we've been fortunate to meet some outstanding artists over the past 10 years, and we're honored that they allow us to showcase their creations....

Warm welcome and authentic touch of local life on the island. Inspired by the simplicity and respect for the beauty of the island.
Aloha VRRVolcano, Thanks so much for your review of our gallery. Our goal is to showcase the beauty of Lana'i in a friendly, laid-back setting...glad you noticed that! Here's hoping your travels bring you back to our little island soon--Mike More
We met Mike at the gallery which was great and the paintings were excellent but not our style. The gallery was also showing some other local artists which was good to see. The FS hotel coincidently had one of his paintings in our room!
Aloha Ross F, Thanks so much for taking the time to visit our gallery...and recommending it to fellow travelers! One of the beautiful things about art is that there are so many styles and genres. The type of art we are particularly drawn to is "representational" vs "abstract", and our artists love capturing the life and landscape of Lana'i. Again,... More
We enjoyed visiting in the gallery - seeing the art, as well as visiting with Mike and others in the shop. Mike and, I think, Diane, are super friendly and helpful, and make you feel right at home. They are happy to share information about any of the items in the shop, or any information about the island that you... More
Aloha pattic777, Mahalo for taking the time to write such a nice review! Diane and I really want the gallery experience to be laid-back and friendly--which is how life is here on Lana'i. As we're fond of saying, we're part gallery/part concierge :-) Glad that you also liked my art that was in your room at the Hotel Lana'i. Here's... More
After stopping by a few high pressure galleries in Maui, it was refreshing to visit the Mike Carroll Gallery in Lana'i! Mike was in the gallery and took the time to talk with us about his art as well as the work of other local artists on display in his gallery--- great quality paintings, sculptures, and jewelry, and not kitschy... More
Aloha Itchyfeetmama, Thanks so much for stopping by our gallery and for taking the time write such a nice review! Those high pressure galleries on the other islands all have what they call a "Viewing Room" with a low couch that's hard to get out of, lights that dim, and a door that will eventually close and trap you inside.... More
We stopped in to take a look at the art but stayed a while to chat with Mike. He was in the middle of painting when we walked in but he put down is brush and and took the time to tell us about the locations of many of his paintings as well as the other artists showing in the... More
Aloha Mdkirkpatrick, Mahalo for your review! For those who haven't visited us, you'll often find me at the easel that's in the center of our gallery. One of the great things about painting with oils is that I can drop the brush and take the time to answer guests' questions. A number of the pieces by our guest artists were... More
My husband and I visited Lanai in June 2013 and must have gone into Mike's gallery at least three times. Mike and his coworker provided much more than just a gallery, they were so friendly and helpful !! They gave us really great advice on what to eat and places to see. It's like a gallery/concierge. I recommend you check... More
Aloha gypsygirldm, What a kind review! We know that first time visitors to Lana'i City often walk around in a daze: there are no traffic lights (because there's no traffic!), the architectural style is 1930's "Plantation-Era", and you'll encounter some of the friendliest and most helpful people I've found anywhere. We hand out a map of the city that shows... More
