Exhibitions - 2019/2020 Season

Mayumi Oda Expression of the Female Deity | Aug 29 - Oct 13, 2019

A retrospective exhibit spanning 40 years of work by the artist known as the Matisse of Japan, Mayumi Oda. "Through my creative process, I have been creating myself. Goddesses are a projection of myself and who I want to be.  Each picture represents a stage of my development, the influences I was feeling, and events that were going on around me." -Mayumi Oda

Mariah Reading  In The Wake of Our Waste | Oct 17 - Dec 7, 2019

There is no shortage of marine debris harming our once pristine oceans. Reading has searched for creative ways to leave all bodies of water better than she found them. This series looks at how a human footprint on land is directly related to the sea. Reading’s work depicts environmental changes humans have caused and what steps must be taken to preserve this one Earth.

Leah Schretenthaler The Invasive Species of the Built Environment | Oct 17 -
Dec 7, 2019

The Invasive Species of the Built Environment explores the controversial builds and infrastructural projects in the state of Hawai’i. Through the act of trying to remove the man-made structures through laser etching, the process ends up scarring the paper, much like how the land is scarred with permanent effects from these structures.

The Voyager Exhibit 2020 | Dec 12 -Jan 26, 2020

This year’s exhibit will focus on the voyaging canoe Makali’i’s Hanauna Ola project, in which the canoe sailed for 30 days to the Northwest Hawaiian Islands provisioned with food entirely sourced on Hawai’i Island and in part, grown and preserved by local school garden programs. The Voyager Exhibit is curated in partnership with Na Kālai Wa’a and the Waimea Ocean Film Festival.

Michelle Schwengal-Regala Kalae and Beyond | Jan 30 - Mar 8, 2020

Fire and ice: Two opposing forces which seem worlds apart.  Though Hawai‘i and Antarctica are separated by a vast expanse of ocean, both have been defined by these conditions.  In this mixed-media installation inspired by her expedition to Antarctica, Michelle compares and contrasts these interconnected regions, their inhabitants, and the forces that shape them.

Craig Schwanfelder  Half Court - Full Court | Jan 30 - Mar 8, 2020

Basketball hoops can be found everywhere and are accessible to people from all walks of life. Half Court - Full Court is created using in-camera multiple exposure photography and explores the sport’s surrounding environment by providing an otherwise impossible view of both basketball hoops simultaneously.

5th Annual Juried Exhibition | Mar 12 - Apr 19, 2020

As part of our visual arts program, Kahilu Exhibits annually presents a juried exhibition of Hawai’i state artists.  The 2020 Juror and theme will be announced via our Kahilu Theatre Exhibits email ‘ohana, as well as listed on Café(www.callforentry.org) in November 2019.

All Schools Exhibit: Waimea Education Hui  | Apr 23 – Jun 7, 2020

Curated in partnership with the Waimea Education Hui, this year’s All Schools Exhibit will align thematically with the upcoming Mele Murals project at the Waimea Community Center.

Heart of the Wa'a Voices of Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe Racing | Jun 11 - Aug 16, 2020

Heart of the Wa’a project focuses on place-based narratives from leaders and kūpuna of Hawaiian outrigger canoe racing, and the many facets of canoe culture in Hawaiʻi. The exhibit uses images and oral histories to explore what is at the heart of the canoe, or waʻa. From coaching to canoe carving, it allows viewers an intimate look at these bearers of tradition, and the knowledge they impart to the next generation.
