Note 01-26-18: We’re currently working on improving and adding more information on our Koa Art Gallery page. Please stay tuned, we apologize if this page will look odd for a little bit but we hope the result will be worth your wait. Come back soon for information on our existing and upcoming exhibitions.

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 KCC 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
