One of our favorite things to do in Hawaii is go Art Gallery hopping. That's easy to do on the Big Island, as there are a lot of fine galleries representing both off island and local artists.

The Volcano Art gallery in the Volcano National Park represents the best of what the Hawaiian Islands have to offer
We attended a reception there where we met glass artist
and bought several of her beautiful glass plates
Each is unique and cast in lava molds
I love their organic form
And she doesn't skimp on her color... red glass is becoming very rare..

On the opposite side of the Island we visited all of the little galleries in Hawi which offer fine art crafts from the local area.

And of course we had to visit the artist colony of Honolua which is the home of one of my favorite regional artist: Darrel Hill
