Many Hands Gallery is a unique art gallery located in Eureka, a Victorian seaport on the remote North Coast of California. The Many Hands Gallery tradition began when Phil and Lunel Haysmer first opened the Gallery in 1990. For over two decades Many Hands has offered a brilliant selection of locally handcrafted items from Humboldt County, creative wares from West Coast artists and select imports from around the world.
In 2012, Astra Burke, the longtime store manager and art buyer, purchased the gallery from the Haysmers. It is Astra's intention to maintain and expand the unique and eclectic selection of treasures from around the globe.
Many Hands Gallery's mission is to provide gifts with meaning and history. Each and every product found in the Many Hands storefront in Eureka and in the online store have been carefully hand-selected to represent a dedication to fine craftsmanship, unique ethnic and local artisans and to a deep appreciation of international history, religions and spirituality.
Fair-trade and ethically imported goods are a mainstay of Many Hands Gallery. Over the past two decades the owners and buyers of Many Hands have searched the world over to bring you a selection of one of a kind items straight from the artist who create them, telling stories of the human experience and the many hands who help mold it.
