Aloha Kakou,

Thank you for visiting Nohea Gallery. Since 1990, local art and fine crafts and the people who make them have been our passion and our community.

Every day Nohea Gallery celebrates the arts and artists of Hawaii. The artists and craftspeople we work with are committed to giving their best.

We are a small family business and a large ohana of artists, our crew of many years, and collectors and givers of quality crafts and local art.

I was born here and grew up in the most beautiful valley in the world.  My Grandmother, Mom’s Mom, was a gifted painter whose plain aire oil paintings of Oahu are some of our most treasured possessions.  Verdella was an accomplished watercolorist and oil painter, and she loved having people over to visit more than anything. We think of her every day when we enjoy the art and people that make this place special. We think she would be very happy to see everyone enjoying art and their neighbors and friends!

We have been were honored to receive on behalf of the artists and our team the Kahili Award, the Hawaii Visitor and Convention Bureau “Keep it Hawaii” award, the Honolulu Magazine ‘People’s Choice’ award, and others.  All of that would be nothing without our loyal fans and customers.  Without you, this wouldn’t be any fun at all, so thank you for making a place in your life for made in Hawaii art, crafts and artists.

We feel grateful to be a part of this community, and welcome you to it!
