Holualoa Gallery

Big Island Guide Travel Guide

Owners/Artists, husband and wife, Matthew and Mary Lovein established Holualoa Gallery in January of 1990. Their love of art and nature has inspired them to host local artists in various mediums as well as, their own coveted collections. Aside from being an accomplished painter, Mary wrote, photographed and published “Chameleons in the Garden” a coffee table book about the Jackson’s Chameleons in Hawaii. She spent 5 years of daily journal entries, taking over 5000 photographs to document their behaviors and individual chameleons throughout the years. Originally from Mt. Kenya Africa, they reside in the cool elevations and rainforests of Hawaii.

Matthew Lovein is the creator of the prized Wish Keeper™ in 1992 after seeing the design and concept in a dream. His vision, a ceramic vessel with a bamboo shaped lid and when lifted, a silk cord with an inner chamber, holds your written wish on parchment. The Wish Keeper™ is collected worldwide and is available in various shapes, sizes, and glazes. The front of the vessel is embossed with an ancient symbol Matthew presses into the wet clay representing good fortune and abundance. Matthew Lovein doesn’t stop there, he has some impressive and sizable ceramic sculptures and also works in glass. A visit to this gallery includes meeting Mary Lovein and learning about their art and seeing their outstanding collections.
