Blog: A taste of what you may find on Maui

Meet metal artist Richard Digiacomo

This week I was shopping for a special gift and came across the Maui Hands art gallery in Makawao. Maui Hands is an art gallery with four locations on Maui (Lahaina, Paia, Makawao and the Hyatt in Kaanapali) representing the works of 300 Hawaiian artists, many of them living here on Maui. Do check them out! They have a great variety!

We got lucky as Maui metal artist Richard Digiacomo was in residence on Thursday. Not only did we buy one of his color infused aluminum etchings, we also got to talk with him and have our picture taken. Cool! Did you know, that Mr Digiacomo has a prison ministry, working with prisoners after their release?

I particularly love this wave and the way the color comes to life in the light! You can hang it at an angle (as being held) or straight. Very cool.

Richard will be at the Makawao Maui Hands gallery every Thursday in March. Come watch him at work and talk story with him. Additionally for the rest of March there is a 20% discount off his etchings at the Makawao store!
