“over-rated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Not very exciting art, over priced, not enough local talent- and I know that there is plenty to chose from. It just feels like they expect the tourists to buy because THEY say it's good. Most of it isn't!

“Wonderful Art Selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

John and Vera, the owners of Genesis Gallery have locations at both the Queen's Marketplace and the King's Marketplace. The King's location has a lot of more blown glass including many outstanding Chihuly pieces. Both locations feature a number of local Hawaiian artists who have created, paintings, wood sculptures and glass as well as jewelry. The Gallery will arrange to have your purchases shipped home for you.

“Gallery Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

this gallery at the Kings shops was a hidden treasure. Varied and excellent artwork. Nice variety of art forms. Great to take back a memory of Hawaii.
