We are dedicated to showing the best of Hawai‘i’s fine art masters and contemporary artists of Hawai‘i. The Koa Art Gallery is a catalyst, bringing art and people together. It is a working visual art laboratory for the Kapi‘olani Community College campus and the community at large, serving as a learning tool and resource for creative excellence.
The Koa Art Gallery is dedicated to the belief that art is a powerful force, transforming individuals and communities, and encourages creative practice for everyone into daily living.
The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls. – Pablo Picasso
Aloha mai kākou
The Koa Gallery will be closed until further notice effective Friday, May 9, 2018, while we regroup and reevaluate our direction to best serve the community. The final show will be our:
Annual 28th Students’ Show
exhibiting Thurs, April 26 to Wed, May 9
Our goal is to re-open the Koa Gallery and uphold the Gallery’s dedication and commitment to support the education and development of visual arts of Hawaiʻi.
