Outrigger hotel gets art gallery

WAIKIKI, Hawaii -- Nohea Gallery, a Hawaiian gift store and art gallery, opened in Outrigger's Ohana Reef Towers hotel on Lewers Street.

The Nohea Gallery (Nohea means lovely or of fine appearance in Hawaiian) features koa wood boxes, wood bowls, glass, ceramics, original paintings and prints. Other wares include Japanese fish prints, textiles and jewelry.

Resident artists craft most of the work sold in the gallery, according to co-owner Laurie Baron.

Baron said the gallery will host workshops where customers can meet the artists.

"Having workshops with the artists who create these hand-crafted works of art will help our visitors gain a true sense of what is special about Hawaii," she said.

The gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
