Island of Big Island

On a walk through historic Kailua Village, discover the essence of art and culture. The Eclectic Craftsman features 70 premier Hawaiian artists including KAWIKA, Terry Cisco, Esther Szegedy, Kathy Long, Patti Pease Johnson and Karen Thrasher. The featured works of wood artist Michael Patrick Smith, and marine wood sculptor Craig Nichols, are truly amazing. There’s also exquisite museum quality bowls, curly Koa paddles, jewelry boxes, furniture, blown glass, legendary Hawaiiana, and a lovely handcrafted jewelry collection in Koa, gold and silver. The gallery is easy to find at the Kona Inn Shopping Village, where two palm trees shade the doorway on the makai side of Ali‘i Drive—the ocean view is breathtaking! Open daily.
