Molokai Art From The Heart is a collection of local artists and crafters on the island of Molokai. We are located at 64 Ala Malama (Main Street) in downtown Kaunakakai.
Our mission is to promote the arts on Molokai and thereby enhance the economy of our island.
The work of featured artists is shown on this site however, if you contact us, we would be happy to assist you with identifying a piece from any of the artists who have their work in the gallery.
The gallery features, oil, acrylic, and water color paintings both originals and giclee prints. Photographs and beautiful craft items handmade by local artisans include jewlery, local hardwood items, painted coconuts and gourds, garments and household linens in tropical prints, and even books by the artists. Be sure to inquire about t-shirts, coffee mugs, and other gift items that feature the work of our featured artists.
In 2006 seven Molokai fine artists decided to form a guild in an effort to market our work in a viable retail store on Molokai.
We created the store with seven of us and now we have about 100 Molokai-only artists and crafters. Our gallery is the only one of its kind on Molokai.
We operate like a co-op in that the company does not make a profit; all the work is on consignment; and we take turns working with no compensation other than the sale of our own work on consignment. This keeps the prices at a very reasonable level because only a small percentage is taken for rent, etc., when the artist sells a product.
The rule for our gallery is that one must be the original creator of the work and one must live on Molokai. On occasion we accept work from guest artists of other Hawaiian islands.
