Volcano Garden Arts is situated on a World Heritage site a mile from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Once a part of the 1908 Hopper Estate, its lovely grounds include lovely cultivated gardens, art studios, greenhouses for both plant cultivation and art making, and access to nature trails into surrounding, upland rain forest. The farmhouse-turned-gallery is California redwood originally brought to Volcano by ship, rail and horse-drawn wagon.

 At Volcano Garden Arts, discover the foremost in contemporary Hawaiian arts and fine crafts: ceramics, sculpture, fiber arts, painting and many other media. Our selection ranges from fresh, fun collectibles to works of significant impact, and from pocket-sized to larger-than-life. The entire complex is located within lush gardens and historic structures right in Volcano Village near lodging and restaurants. We welcome self-guided tours of the grounds and gallery.  Abundant off-street parking. Admission is free.

Volcano Garden Arts is a unique indoor outdoor environment devoted to every stage of the creative process, from nurturing ideas to displaying finished work. A window into artistic exploration for artists and non-artists alike, we offer work-space, on going classes and a gallery that showcases Work-created on site and by regional artists-for purchase.  

The owner, Ira Ono (he calls himself a caretaker) is an internationally recognized artist with more than 30 years of experience in creating, performing, and teaching art; as well as a devoted gardener. He is a longtime Volcano resident and appreciator of its distinctive appeal. Volcano Garden Arts inspires artists, writers and gardeners from around the world to explore, retreat, and enjoy the wonders of Hawai'i.

As an added attraction we have a lovely one bedroom guest cottage rental. Perfect for a romantic getaway.
