Ship Store Gallery, Where the Legacy of a Bygone Era Endures
The Voyages of Exploration and Discovery of Hawaii through the lens of Captain James Cook are brought to life via the paintings of Raymond Massey. For 35 years, Ship Store Gallery has been a showcase for these historical works of art from one of the nation’s most noted maritime historian, artist and author.
Massey brings life to art via the log-books and journals of Captain James Cook, George Vancouver, William Bligh, and Charles Darwin, among other famous sea captains and navigators. At least five to seven years of intensive research is behind each of his paintings.
The purpose of the gallery is to showcase the maritime history of Hawaii and the Pacific. Our shop features maps, prints, giclees, sketches, nautical antiques and photos from the top artist in Hawaii. Our lecture series, “ Voyages Through Time,” delves in the history of Hawaii from the moment of contact when James Cook arrived on Kauai in January of 1778 to Statehood in 1959. These lectures are educational, cultural and historical.
The represented artists at Ship Store Gallery are Anthony Casay, Lance Fairly, Blaise Domino, Ron Souza, Sally Armstrong, Lea Ingram, the Makk Family and the Lighthearted and Whimsical Kingdom of Rosalie Prussing.
