Hanalei Art Festival

Waioli Church, Hanalei, Kauai

Although art in Hawaii is mainly centered in Honolulu, groups on the neighbor islands are also active. The Hanalei Art Festival, first to be held on Kauai is an important step for that island. Many artists there feel Kauai has great potential as an artists colony, and are trying to develop it as such. The exhibit was especially successful and included amateurs as well as such well-known Island artists as Isami Doi (Doi has a one-man showing at The Gallery this month, August).
