Kailua Village Artists Featured
Artist in November is Christal Nylin

Creativity and entrepreneurship have always been a driving force in Christal Nylin's life. Her formal art training and inspiration started in high school, with an exceptional art teacher and a sewing class. She says she is primarily self-taught. But it was not until 2007 that her fine art journey began.

40 years of living in Hawaii has given Christal her depth in knowing the Island’s beauty and spirit. This is what comes through in her paintings. Her medium is oil on canvas. On location or in her home studio, her subjects capture a place in time, an iconic island specialty or picturesque vision. Many of her paintings have a vintage feel.

In honor of this month’s Kona Coffee Festival, Christal will have a special display of her coffee art collection, created over the last nine years.

Christal will be working at the gallery on Wednesday, November 7 and Monday, November 12, 2018.


The Kailua Village Artists “Charity" Tree will be on display at the Kailua Village Artists Gallery, in the Kona Marketplace, at a reception to be held on Friday, November 30, 2018, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.  Shoppers may select their choice from the many ornaments created by the local Kailua Village Artists members.  Pupus, refreshments and live music will be provided.  The tree will remain in the gallery through December 26.

100% of Ornament sales, from the Charity tree, at the reception and through the month of December will benefit "Malama I Na Keiki Hanai," to empower and support Hawaii's Foster Children.  In the last few years Kailua Village Artists have raised over $1,000 each year in Ornament sales.  This helped create opportunities for children to take special classes, provided things they needed for school, and nurtured them to overcome hardships.

We are located in the
Kona Marketplace
75-5729 Ali'i Drive, Suite C-110
 (on the walkway between Sunglass Hut and Sam's Hideaway)
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

The gallery is open 7 days a week from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm
Kailua Village Artists is a Cooperative organization. The gallery is managed by the members.
