Aloha and Welcome to Shibui Art Gallery!!
James Naylor has been in business for 15 years, first in Tokyo, then just outside of San Francisco. About 10 yrs ago Naylor moved to the Oregon coast and took Shibui Art “on line.”
On January 2, 2012 Shubui Art Gallery opened up as a “brick & mortar” gallery in Hawi, just 2 doors north of Sushi Rock Restaurant. This new gallery provides more interaction with customers than what ‘s possible through the Internet.
Shubui Art Gallery has an eclectic collection of Asian art, primarily Japanese but also Chinese and Korean, some Thai and Burmese. I tend to specialize however in high end antique ceramics. Many of the ceramics have not only provenance but also have either been exhibited or published or even were a part of various museum’s collections!
Items at Shubui Art Gallery range from less than one hundred dollars on up.
The gallery has many medium format transparencies of Buddhist art and architecture of Borobudur, Angkor & Banteay Srei, Cambodia; Anuradhapura & Polonnaruwa, Ceylon; Pagan, Burma; Champa sculpture from Danang, Vietnam and Nara and Nikko in Japan. Many of these photographs were with a stock photo agency in London and some were chosen and printed in books published by BBC and other publishers.
Shibui Art Gallery is located at 55-3435 Akoni Pule Hwy., Unit 9 in Hawi, Hawaii. Just doors North of Sushi Rock Restaurant.
