Kelas…a glass gallery was established in 1994 on the beautiful island of Kauai. The goal to open the gallery stemmed from a frustration of not being able to find a wide selection of specialty retail glass art and feeling as a consumer at that time that the existing galleries charged too much for their art .
From day one, They feel They have successfully addressed those concerns. They have implemented a shopping environment that rewards Them, the customer with quality and value and them with a high percentage of repeat customers.
A key factor in being able to present the highest quality art at the best possible value is that they purchase all glass pieces directly from the artist. They do not accept consignment pieces ensuring smart buying decisions and a stronger relationship with each individual artist.
Kelas is annually nominated as one of the Niche Top 100 Craft Retailers in the country. Many people who visit their gallery tell them their selection is the best they have seen anywhere. Additionally they have a toll free phone #, e-mail and of course their ever changing web-site.
They routinely e-mail photos of existing glass art pieces to new and prospective customers. This way they can see additional pieces that may not be pictured on their web site.
They invite them to stop in their gallery when they are here on Kauai. They look forward to serving them.

From this humble begining, the Guild has continued to grow through monthly meetings, artist demonstrations, and local exhibits.
The Elmhurst Artists’ Guild is a Charter Member of the Alliance of Fine Art (AFA) since 1962.
The Elmhurst Art Museum is the Guild home. In 1989 and 1990, the Guild consummated an agreement for the sale of its property to the Elmhurst Park District.
