Curtis Wilson Cost Gallery
Maui artist Curtis Wilson Cost followed in the footsteps of his famous father (James Peter Cost) more than 20 years ago. Now in his mid-40s, the artist has established a reputation all his own in art circles worldwide. With two Maui galleries (the original studio is upcountry) he continues to create works that the media have called "examples of heightened reality at its finest." Both originals and glicees are sold at the Lahaina showroom. (Glicees, for the uninitiated, are a French term for "iris prints", high quality computer-generated prints on canvas.) Mr. Cost is often present on Friday evenings.
A return visit to Maui isn't complete without a visit to the Gallery. On my first visit to Maui I had the pleasure of viewing a showing in Lahaina Town on Friday night, "Art Night" and met Curtis. The Gallery is big and airy and a fantastic inventory of the artist's work is displayed in a wonderful manner, inviting you to browse at your leisure.
A treat for locals or visitors!
I've been going to Maui for many years. When I first ventured outside the beach resort areas, I discovered this artist's work at his Upcountry gallery on the slopes of Haleakala crater.
He has now opened another gallery on Front Street in Lahaina where many visitors can more easily discover his world class paintings. He does richly detailed landscapes of the rural parts of island life. He has an incredible way of capturing Hawaii.
The new gallery is right in the middle of Lahaina town and well worth a stop.
