Four times a year the artwork rotates in the Artizen Gallery, and September means new artists will be filling the walls. There will be an exciting portfolio artists' show on display featuring the works by Abe, Bromley, Endicott, Koga, Pao and Romanchak. Come and experience a new kind of gallery shop filled with products from local designers, artists, and craftsman coming together to create a living, breathing gallery shop.
MORI by Art + Flea was voted 2017's Best Honolulu Gift Shop in Honolulu Magazine and has been supporting the growing community of local creatives since opening their doors in November 2014 at Ward Warehouse. MORI is now currently located in South Shore Market in Ward Village and serves as a platform for Hawaii's designers and artists to showcase their work and what they love to do. The artists and brands from MORI to be showcased at the upcoming second store location include Ravunan, Andrew Mau, Asham Studio, Deanna Gabiga, Honolulu Printmakers and more.
MORI has secured their role as a well-established shop by being involved with the community through events such as the recent NEKO CAFE partnered with Morning Glass and Hawaiian Humane Society and on a bigger scale in the local art scene, from their pop-up shop at Honolulu Biennial 2017. The hope for the HISAM x MORI Gallery Shop is to attract collectors of all generations and elevate their knowledge of Hawaii's finest artists.
