BEST ART GALLERY
one world gallery
When first walking into One World Gallery in Lahaina, visitors should refrain from talking to or otherwise acknowledging the distinguished, tuxedoed gentleman near the entrance—he’s fake. Then again, what do you expect from a place that has the word “Artrageous!” hanging on a sign out front? One World is like a lot of the galleries on Front Street, in that visitors are encouraged to hand over hundreds, even thousands of dollars to purchase the works on the walls. But it’s unique in that those works involve a lot more glass fish, ceramic bikini women crawling out of a giant martini glass, dog-head clocks, wire sculptures, bronze golfers and giant, brightly-painted pop-up images of Broadway than your average Lahaina gallery. 816 Front St., Lahaina, 661-3984.
