We have visited Sherri Reeve's gallery several times over the past 13 years and have many pieces of her art in our home. We've just returned from our latest trip, and our newest Reeve work is currently being shipped to us. Her work is lovely, and she's always there to greet customers and personally sign anything you buy. What we love so much about Sherri is that her work is accessible. Walk into some Maui galleries and art goes for thousands of dollars. Those kinds of pieces can be found here, too. But you can also buy wonderful, sizable works of art by Sherri Reeve for a few hundred dollars. You can get smaller works in a variety of forms for the same amount you'd spend on lunch. Her art speaks to everybody and it can be purchased by everybody. If you visit Makawao, you must stop into the Reeve gallery.
I sincerely appreciate all of hard work you, Makana and Hailey did to get the art on its way in such a short time frame. I know it took a lot of extra work and coordination with others to make it happen. Last night when we got the e-mail of the art framed I was ecstatic of how beautiful they turned out. We can’t wait to see them on the wall. Sherri, you are brilliant artist and your love of Hawaii shows in all of your work. Every time we walk into your Gallery we are greeted with the warm Aloha welcome that keeps us coming back. A special thanks to Makana for putting up with all of my questions. If you all are ever on the east coast, please come and stay with us for a few days and let us show around Virginia.
Sweet Testimonial from a T-shirt Fan!
“A couple of weeks ago my husband and I visited your gallery in Makawao. I specifically wanted to try on one of your new Blue Dragon T-shirts. The XXL fit perfect and I bought it. It was the longer sleeved style and I made a quick decision that I would wear my new shirt on our flight home.
I was surprised at the Maui airport when a woman came up to me asking where I bought my shirt. She loved it! I told her about you and where to find your gallery. A few hours later, at the airport in Portland OR, another lady approached me saying how beautiful my shirt was and asked where I got it. I told her about your website. She immediately started talking to her phone and recording the information. I have never been a “fashion plate” or had this much attention regarding what I am wearing. Believe, me, it was NOT the model since I am 70 years of age AND I wear XXL! It was definitely the shirt. You have created a real winner!”

It’s a small world …An example of our Sherri shirts bringing people together.
Hi Sherri. I have enjoyed visiting your store in Makawao a few times, and meeting you. I had something interesting just happen to me, and I thought you would like hearing about it.
Recently I was on a European cruise with some friends. My wardrobe consisted mainly of shorts/capris with your gorgeous tops. When I was in Pompeii, a woman came up to me and said something that I could not understand. She saw my puzzled look, pointed at my shirt and said "Makawao!" I laughed and said "Yes, Makawao!" and then we both said "Sherri Reeve" at the same time. She pulled out her phone and showed me pictures of herself wearing one of your beautiful scarves.
It was amazing to be connected to someone else in that way, when we didn't speak each other's language, with the world being so large, and Makawao being kind of small! ;-)
