Joe Fletcher • Village Galleries Maui


JOE FLETCHER has been represented by Village Galleries since 2004.His latest plein air oils are featured at our Lahaina and Kapalua locations.

Private art lessons after school and taking every art class his schools offered, led Joe to majoring in art at Woodbury College, Los Angeles in the early sixties.  He worked after classes  at L. R. Canrobert Fine Art Importers restoring paintings, using techniques of the masters. He also learned to frame and sell paintings. In 1964, Joe opened a gallery and studio in California which he operated until moving to Maui with his wife, Kathy.

Kathy teaches anthropology at University of Hawai’i Maui College and Joe trudges through cow pastures, old sugar mills, under waterfalls and into volcanoes, painting the many scenic treasures of Maui with great skill and enthusiasm.

Joe’s paintings have been shown in numerous Maui venues including the annual juried exhibition, Art Maui, and Hui No’eau Visual Art Center. His work is in the collection of the State of Hawaii, as well as many corporate and private collections. He has been an Artist-In-Residence and a participating artist in Celebration of the Arts at the Ritz-Carlton; and the Maui Plein Art Painting Invitational.

“My interest in art began at age six when my grandfather gave me my first paint set. After vacationing on Maui for many years, my wife, Kathy, and I sold our gallery in Los Angeles and moved to Kula. We built our dream home and now I’m happily painting Maui almost daily.”
