Vivid, bright colored paintings and prints depicting Hawaii, sports, aquatic life and our favorite Dogs. A master artist. We bought to small prints for our family, both of coarse featured dogs. Quite memorable.

I stumbled into this perfectly located gallery on behest of my boyfriend on our Hawaiian cruise. The bright colors had drawn his attention from across the street as we searched the area for some Poke bowls. We are both art, fashion and creativity enthusiasts and the gallery did not disappoint. The walls are covered in original masterpieces by the lovely Mrs. Coates who draws inspiration from many things including nature, Hawaii and her lovely canine babies. It was an obviously lucky day for us as it had rained pretty bad for some time earlier and we’d watched the small beach near the gallery empty in minutes only for the sun to come right back out half hour later allowing us to have the beach all to ourselves. Our luck continued in the gallery, as we looked around and were met by a petite blonde woman with an enthusiastic grin standing behind the counter, whom was none other than le artiste Herself in the flesh, Mrs. Coates! Apparently she’s only in the gallery once a week. She immediately greeted my boyfriend and I and asked us where we were from which led to a joke (by her) that completely broke the ice for all of us. We laughed hard to say the least. While she chatted us up I’d noticed a particularly amazing piece of art hanging behind the counter. The detail, extraordinary use of colors and textures and thought put into all of the pieces are astounding but this one painting just stood out for me in particular. Once she took it down so we could take a closer look my boyfriend dissected it and was able to interpret so many details most people probably would miss. The painting was so much deeper then it’s initial obvious beauty. It was asleep and aware, day and night, light and dark, man and woman, love and liberty. Every detail of the painting lead to a metaphor and a deeper meaning. What makes art collectible and memorable is the story it weaves in the strokes of the brush. “The name of the work is ‘When Doves Fly’ ”, she declared. How clever! At a price of over 2 grand we considered buying the miniature framed copy which would have went perfectly on our customized wall. But the original was just so powerful I had trouble imagining myself without it. As other customers poured into the store we decided to walk off and chat about It some more over a poke bowl and a mai tai. An hour later we were back. My boyfriend was leaning towards the smaller more affordable $200 framed mini, which was in all honesty the more responsible choice. Cindy was light and lovely and not pushy at all. Her easiness was apparent and I could tell she would be ok with whatever we decided even if it was to just thank her for her time and be on our merry way. In the end we walked out front with it and took another look in the sun. The painting gleamed and the moment was magical. It looked wet like she had just finished painting it a minute ago and that was when I decided the investment was definitely worth it for us. We chatted some more, got a better deal on it, exchanged memes, took a photo and gave our address to have the masterpiece shipped to our home in NY where it hangs on our bedroom wall right in front of the loveseat we sit at every morning and evening. I stare at it everyday and it reminds me of Hawaii, the lovely woman behind the art I had the pleasure to meet, and the deeper meaning of everything the painting whispers to me. I feel like you painted this for us you just didn’t know it! Thank you Cindy, you are a true artist and a beautiful soul.

This gallery is tucked away under Splasher's restaurant. The artist does whimsical, colorful paintings of local fish and flora. We have been here twice, met the artist both times and purchased a piece each time. We love her work.

Cindy Coats is a wonderful artist, with works ranging from realism to folk art. And her colors are so bright and beautiful. Both original works and prints are available in the gallery and are priced so that everyone can afford to take one of her works home. Cindy is always willing to take time out of her work to chat with visitors, so if you happen to catch her in the gallery you must at least say, "Hi!" A must-do for those visiting Kona; just across the street from the Marriott on the waterfront.
