Name of Gallery, Location
Britton Gallery, Haleiwa, Hawaii
Contemporary Hawaii Artists and Craftsmen
Why did you decide to open a gallery?
The original owner had a good friend, Jurgen Aldag, who painted large unique abstracts. Over the years he had acquired quite a few pieces as he "supported the arts". We still show Aldags work, but have expanded to over 35 different Hawaii artists. I started to work in the gallery in 2001 to educate and support myself in my desire to make painting a way of life. I do oil landscapes. In 2008 the owner decided to retire and since I had been a loyal employee and good manager he made it possible for me to buy the gallery. I love it, now if I can just find some time to paint.
What have you found to be the most difficult aspect of running a gallery?
