The Top Maui Art Galleries
Maui is a place of extreme beauty. With so much natural beauty, artists have a lot of inspiration. Historically, many famous artists have called Maui home over the years. So it’s no wonder that it is also home to some amazing art galleries. From beautiful fine art photography to glassworks to color paintings and sculptures, the island of Maui has many art galleries to choose from. While I generally gravitate towards photography galleries, as I’m a landscape and nature photographer, I have to say, my favorite art on the island might be some of the ultra colorful paintings of the beautiful landscapes of Maui. Art galleries like Jim Kingwell’s gallery in Lahaina, Kim McDonald’s gallery in Paia and Julie Galeeva’s gallery in Makawao were my favorite art galleries on the island!
I separated out the art galleries below by distinct regions. Lahaina and west Maui, being the largest concentration of art galleries on Maui is the first region. South Maui, including Kihei and Wailea is the second. Wailuku, Kahului & the North Shore’s Paia has a large amount of art galleries as well, and is the third region. The Upcountry, including Makawao, Kula and Pukalani constitutes the fourth region. And finally, while the number of art galleries is slim, the Road to Hana has a couple of gems worth seeing as well! So scroll down if you’re looking for some fine art galleries to visit on your trip to Maui. And if nature photography is your thing, I have beautiful limited edition Hawaiian fine art prints for sale in my Maui photography gallery. I also have Oahu collections and Kauai collections for fans of other Hawaiian islands!
