Giant is the joint effort of Milton
Ausherman and Andrea Hunting. The
three thousand square-foot gallery
houses modern art, painting and
sculpture, and a store featuring modern
design furniture and imported items that
reflect Andrea’s interest in the linear
delights of the Asian world, as well as
old stock wonders from Charles and
Ray Eames and new pieces from Japan’s
famous muji store. New vertical work in
the gallery features several collaborations
between esso and O
that have resulted
in neo-geo minimalism appropriate for
the great room, the boardroom, and
even the baby’s room. Artist Mercer
explores new directions, including a few
collaborations with Milton.

carries an assortment of reproductions of his original artwork in canvas
giclées, cards, paper prints, and one-of-a-kind ceramic tiles. Come and
experience what island living is all about at Vacation on Canvas Gallery.
