Island of Kauai

Over the past seven years, galerie 103 has redefined the art scene in Hawai‘i, and gained world-wide recognition by participating in noted art fairs, nation wide. Hosting collections of exquisite contemporary art and sculptured furniture, the large space reflects both Kaua‘i’s earthiness and sophistication. Art writer 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.” Represented artists include internationally renowned abstract painter Tom Lieber, Hawai‘i Living Treasure sculptor David Kuraoka and many other leading Hawai‘i artists.
