Island of Kauai

 Over the past three years, galerie 103 in Kukui‘ula has redefined the art scene in Hawai‘i. Hosting collections of exquisite contemporary art, sculptured furniture, mixed media and rare books, the large space reflects both Kaua‘i’s earthiness and sophistication. Art critic Jaimey Hamilton writes “galerie 103 rises above the tourist art galleries that proliferate on the Islands. How? By conceiving of a space that combines the best of local talent with international artists in spare, smart shows that challenge the notion of regionalism that has preoccupied Hawai‘i artists, gallerists and collectors for so long. In opening a world class gallery on the south shore of Kaua‘i, Stude (gallery owner) proves that instead of endlessly comparing ourselves to other art centers, the Hawai‘i arts community can simply take pride in the fact that we are part of a vibrant global art culture—that internationally important art can and does happen here.”
