Their first location opened in Makawao in 1992, and they have since grown to host a collection of four Maui Hands Galleries around the corners of the island: Makawao, Paia, Lahaina, and Ka’anapali.

Each gallery offers a rotation of art shows on display, and live local artists for weekly events. Over the years, Maui Hands has won numerous awards, including Maui News’ “Best Art Gallery on Maui,” the “Best of Lahaina” award by the U.S. Local Business Association and “Best of Maui” from Maui Time Weekly.

Lahaina Arts

Since the late 1960s, the Lahaina Arts Society has been one of the premier purveyors of works by local Maui artists and artisans. For over 50 years, the Lahaina Arts Society has promoted visual art on Maui with children’s art classes, special exhibits, a host of events and outdoor fine art fairs under Lahaina’s Historic Banyan Tree. They even award partial scholarships to Maui’s high school students yearly.

The Banyan Tree Gallery is on the top floor of the Lahaina Courthouse. Here is where you’ll find a host of visual art for sale, including paintings, sculpture, art prints, woodworks, ceramic art, and Maui-made jewelry.
Artists who have a feature with the Lahaina Arts Society rotate on monthly and yearly bases. A selection of Maui’s fine art painters includes Anna Keay, Janet Stewart, Diane Appler, Haden Burt, Karen Scarborough, and more. If you’re a lover of photography, Lahaina Arts is a great place to peruse gorgeous pieces taken by photographers like Marty Wolff, Rob Decamp, Blake Hill, John O’Leary, and the Cesere Brothers. One of the things we enjoy most about Lahaina Arts Society is that they also feature artists with less common mediums like Beth Cooper’s linoleum art, Ellen Levinsky’s incredible feather art pieces, and Amanda McCumbee’s photorealistic art. The gallery is open daily between 9 AM and 5 PM (excluding some holidays).

Andrew Shoemaker
Fine Art Photography

Andrew Shoemaker is a fine art photographer based on the island of Maui. After years of showcasing his beautiful works throughout Maui galleries and media publications, he decided to open his own flagship fine art photography gallery in West Maui. Located in Maui’s most historic art district, visitors can now find the Andrew Shoemaker Fine Art Photography Gallery on Front Street in Lahaina.

Here, all will find a Maui gallery that differs from the rest. The space of the location is well-defined, well-lit, modern, and somewhat minimalistic. Shoemaker’s photography adorns the wall in such a way that the idea of “interior design” is instantly elevated.

Shoemaker is world-renowned for capturing aspects of Mother Nature seldom seen in image form: landscapes, nature, marine life, cultural sites, and portraits. He is exceptionally skilled in his craft, possessing the timing, eye for detail, and proficiency of technology that allow for this type of photography mastery.

Because of his expert skills in capturing the best shots, viewers of his art are brought back to fond memories and places in time. His work consists of sunrise and sunset bursts over notable locations, coastline scenes, rare moments with marine life, rainbows spreading over Hawaiian skies, botanicals, and myriad images that are not captured by any other artist today. His fine art photography is most definitely a spectacle that must be experienced by one’s eye.

Visiting the Andrew Shoemaker Fine Art Photography Gallery is a definite to-do on any art lover’s itinerary for Maui. Situated in the most popular location in West Maui, his gallery nestles amongst a host of renowned Maui art galleries, boutiques, historical sites, and restaurants.

When visiting Lahaina on a Friday night, visitors should pay particular attention to the weekly “Lahaina Art Night.” All Lahaina galleries welcome guests to peruse the weekly displays, participate in celebrations, and art openings. The Andrew Shoemaker Gallery should definitely be a point of interest; guests will find that the spirit of aloha rings true, and festivities nurture a genuine sense of community.
Shoemaker offers prints, larger productions, and limited edition art at his flagship Maui gallery, and online.

Fine Art Studio

When exploring Maui’s North Shore, we recommend taking the fifteen-minute drive up from Pa’ia to the picturesque and historic town of Makawao. With its eclectic wooden storefronts resting on the slopes of Haleakala, Makawao Town has maintained its unique and rustic charm. It’s no wonder that artist Jordanne Weinstein has chosen this scenic spot to house her artist-owned gallery.

Not only does Jordanne display her fantastic work in the gallery, but on most days, you can also find her painting here.
You’ll fall in love with Jordanne’s combination of Impressionism and Expressionism that transmits the essence of Maui. Her goal is for her viewers to have a personal connection with her paintings, bringing to mind their own memories of their time spent in the Hawaiian Islands.

Jordanne’s mediums of choice include oil, watercolor, and acrylic with gold leaf. She is famous for her Maui beachscapes, Upcountry landscapes, animals, tropical bouquet arrangements, local architecture, and her signature gold-leaf pineapple paintings. You may also commission a custom painting by Jordanne, specifying the colors, background, and size. Big and small, each piece she creates is a piece of Maui that collectors can take home to revisit their memories of the valley island again and again.
