Far too many galleries in Waikiki feature work from mainland artists, depicting off-island subject matter. We never understood that. People from all over the world come to Waikiki for a taste of Hawaiian culture. Of course, these galleries do feature some local artisans BUT the price tag on most pieces runs as high as your entire hotel stay.
But there’s one gallery-shop that showcases the art you came to Hawaii to see, and at a price that leaves you with enough money for a sunset catamaran cruise – GreenRoom Gallery. It’s a bubbly and vibrant space that features work that will put a smile on your face. It blends modern Hawaiiana with a heavy dose of surf culture. Part gallery, part retail, you may browse at your leisure without feeling the pressure to pull out your wallet. That said, we dare you to walk out without picking up a piece that will brighten up your home back on the mainland.
Featured artists and photographers from Hawaii that you can find in GreenRoom Gallery include Heather Brown (@HeatherBrownArt), Clark Little (@ClarkLittle), Jack Soren (@JackSoren) and an especially talented friend of ours Kat Reeder (@katreederart).
