About Bill Wyland Galleries
The history of Bill Wyland Galleries Lahaina actually began long before the doors opened on Front Street Lahaina in May 2016. In the late 1980’s, William A. Wyland, known to most as Bill, opened his first gallery in Hawaii in the rustic town of Haleiwa on Oahu’s North Shore. That gallery was a showcase of another family member, Bill’s brother Wyland, the pioneer of the marine art movement.
At the Bill Wyland Galleries Lahaina, Bill hand selected the best new and established talent of the Pacific and placed them under one roof in the historic Lahaina theater building. The immense gallery now houses over 20 different artists, 75% of which are from Hawaii or make Hawaii their home now.
Gallery patrons can relax and enjoy the striking visuals of Dennis Mathewson, Bryan Pezman, Ancient Hawaii (a collaboration between Robert King Andia and Colin Anderson), Christian Riese Lassen, Scott Hanson, the 2016 Vans Triple Crown artist Patrick Parker, and many, many more.
Bill Wyland, the driving force behind the gallery’s operations, was born in 1958 in Dearborn, Michigan. He has three brothers, Wyland, Steve and Tom, and without even lifting a brush, has given the family name presence in the art world.
