January 1, 2022 my daughter & I were walking through the Shoppes at Wailea hoping to return something bought the previous day. Once there we discovered most of the shoppes had not opened because of the holiday. We walked in The Lahaina Gallery to kill some time & had a lovely experience.
We met Chris Cornis and he was happy to answer my questions, move artwork around to let me see the ones I liked in different lighting, and listen to my reactions. Our family had spent the Christmas holidays in Hawaii & saw wonderful artwork on the walls that represented every part of it. The artists represented in the gallery were varied. Incredibly I bought 2 pieces! Chris celebrated my purchase with a glass of champagne as I filled out my shipping information. I am home now & my packages just arrived!! WoW!
If you are in the area looking (or not) for artwork you must walk in! Thank you Chris! The information you gave on each artist I liked, coupled with your patience and kindness made the ending to our vacation PERFECT!
