Lahaina Art Galleries

Lahaina Art Galleries, now solely operating from their Wailea location due to the unfortunate loss of their Lahaina gallery in recent wildfires, embodies a unique blend of art and community spirit.

It was founded by Jim and Nancy Killett, who ventured into the art world from backgrounds in physical education. With their combined experiences, the couple has infused the gallery with a familial warmth far from the typical art gallery stereotype. Their approach is an art environment that generates genuine connections with local artists, customers, staff, and local Maui youth.

In response to the wildfires, Lahaina Art Galleries initiated the “Somewhere over the Rainbow” project, a testament to their commitment to the community. This initiative features a collection of local artists rainbow-themed artworks, each representing hope and new beginnings for Maui. A portion of sales from this collection is donated to charities assisting fire victims, including the People’s Fund of Maui, Hawaii Community Foundation – Maui Strong, and a dedicated GoFundMe.

This endeavor not only supports those affected by the fires but also celebrates the resilience and beauty of Maui. It showcases the gallery’s deep connection to the island and its people.

Sabado Art Galleries

Philip Sabado, the youngest of nine siblings, grew up in Mauna Loa, Molokai, immersed in a life of fishing, hunting, and cooking. His artistic inclinations led him from serving in the U.S. Army to studying at the Honolulu Academy of Arts. Recognizing the importance of formal training, he honed his skills at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

In Los Angeles, Sabado established himself as a top illustrator and art director, earning recognition as one of the era’s top 50 Illustrators in the United Society. Despite all his mainland success, the call of Hawaii brought him back home in 1984 to focus on fine arts.

For over three decades, Phil has dedicated himself to creating art that accurately reflects Hawaiian history and culture, combining his love for Hawaii’s nature and heritage. He has completed numerous public and private murals, gaining acclaim in the art community. Sabado’s work, a blend of historical reverence and cultural expression, is showcased at Sabado Art & Design in Wailuku and Wailea, where visitors are welcome to explore his current collections and ongoing projects.

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.
