Once common, the art of carving and dyeing Hawaiian ipus (gourds) is fading. But artist Bill Wright still sells detailed masterpieces—both traditional and contemporary—in the village of Hōlualoa. His gallery also displays engravings from the late 18th century, which illustrate the age of European discovery in Polynesia. Open Tuesday–Saturday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
