Featured Artist
Belinda Leigh
Belinda Leigh
Belinda is a self-taught artist, expressing her love for nature and its fragile beauty through her passion for art.  As a child growing up in Missouri in a family of nine, art was a favorite recreation that manifested itself into dreams of painting dolphins and whales in Hawaii.
Her high school and college years found her preoccupied with math, languages and the sciences.  Her social awareness led her to graduate with honors from the University of Missouri as a social worker, and she worked in the Kansas City inner city.  This work did not fulfill her true passion and satisfy the need inside for artistic pursuits.
One year later, she began to paint, without any training.  Painting was part-time until 1995, when a mastectomy motivated her to make positive choices in her life; one of which was to focus on art.
Fifteen years of painting portraits helped to develop her discipline to paint what she sees.  Revealing a person's spirit, bringing them to life on canvas, is an art she applies to her animal subjects, above and below the surface of the sea.  Maui is her home of 27 years.  The joy and wonder of Maui's diverse natural beauty are portrayed as if one were looking through a window.
Belinda's works are cherished for her technical skills as well as their aesthetic qualities.  Her style is traditional, applying the oil and acrylics by stroke of the brush, without even putting pencil on her canvas.  Thousands of brush strokes and countless transparent layers create silken smoothness and rich texture to delight and bring a joyful experience to the heart of the beholder.
Works by Belinda are currently collected around the world. 

How it All
Started
Gallerie 505 Storefront
New Owner
New Staff
New Artists
New Horizons

In April of 2008, Belinda Leigh, an internationally-successful artist and gallery owner (Maui Arts & Gifts), was made aware that an established Gallery wanted to sell their business interests at "505 Front Street" - a very popular collection of upscale shops & restaurants in Lahaina, Maui, frequented by tourists at all levels.

It was an opportunity for her to significantly expand her own exposure, along with that of many other artists, both local and international, making a broad range of art forms & styles available to a much wider audience.

A bargain was quickly struck, and Belinda immediately set out to reconfigure the gallery and its art collection, and to expand the family of artists and her own staff to offer "something for everyone" in very affordable price ranges.

Many innovations followed, including a schedule of local and visiting "featured artists", actually creating and painting just outside the gallery entrance, to the delight and amazement of all who pass by.  These artists demonstrate their individual styles & techniques, with touches of entertainment, humor, storytelling and education.
 
Belinda now presents a growing family of 25+ artists, spanning many genres & styles, including many offerings that are unique & exclusive to her gallery.  If you've been here before, we certainly look forward to seeing you again soon, and if you've not yet had a chance to visit us, please consider this newsletter to be your formal invitation.

Belinda herself is here most evenings, sometimes as our "featured artist", but always happy to greet everyone & chat about almost anything.  You'll be dazzled by her artwork, and you'll always remember her warm aloha spirit.

Spring Cleaning
 
It's spring cleaning time at Gallerie 505It's that time again!

Everyone knows how easy it is to lose track of things, how "stuff" can accumulate, and how day-to-day distractions can make us overlook the value of what we have.
 
Well, we're doing the same kind of cleaning, discovering and evaluating as most folks do at this time of year. And guess what - Belinda has recognized the value of certain items we've been holding, and has made an executive decision:
"Let's Make a Deal!"
We've found that some of our stock hasn't gotten the exposure it merits, so it's time to make it visible, accessible and most of all, affordable for our family of VIP's (that's you).
 
Starting right now, we're offering special pricing on many items - too numerous to list here - but here are some examples:
