Art of Kauai

The beauty of Kauai has inspired its artists, artisans and craftsmen. Whether it’s a painting, handmade ceramics, glassware or woodwork made of rare koa wood, you’re bound to find the perfect memento that speaks to you on Kauai.

Visit the West Side of Kauai to browse the art galleries of Hanapepe Town, the art capital of Kauai. This rustic, plantation-style village has more fine art galleries than anywhere else on the island. Every Friday night, Hanapepe celebrates Art Night, when galleries and studios open their doors to celebrate art in Kauai.

Elsewhere, Hanalei Town also offers handcrafted gifts and specialty art at shops along its North Shore roadsides. Kapaa on the East Side is a great place to shop and has a variety of galleries to discover. The Kauai Museum in Lihue features the art of Kauai and Niihau as well as artifacts from Hawaii’s past. The Museum Gift Shop is another great place to find that special island keepsake to remind you of your trip to Kauai. The South Shore has variety of galleries showcasing Kauai-only crafts, unique jewelry and artwork.
