Kahilu Exhibits presents Intersections: Considering Imbalance from May 10 - June 30, 2018.  The annual juried exhibition features twenty-one accomplished visual artists working with a multitude of media. 

From the exhibit's call for entries: "In a world that seems increasingly polarized, we often find ourselves at metaphorical intersections where a range of forces- cultural, political, economic, emotional- converge achieving individual or collective balance when these forces meet and mix may first require disturbances or expressions of resistance. Artists often take a significant role in public discourse when their work is driven by these intersections. In this exhibition, we invite artists to examine the idea of an intersection as not simply where two or more lines meet- a site that you approach, choose a direction, and then continue on- but as a starting place to consider the imbalance of the status quo." 

Participating artists are: Amber Aguirre, Patricia Brock, Lauren Hana Chai, Ellen Crocker, Tara Cronin, Heide Cumes, Gina Hartig Williams, Thomas Huffman, Amy Justen, Valerie Y.O.Kim, Michael Marshall, Pablo McLoud, Jackie Mild Lau, Susan Mori, Gwendolyn O'Connor, Joseph Okonek, Joy Ray, Joseph Ruesing, Michelle Schwengel-Regala, Helen White, and Scott Yoell.

The award winners are:
1st Place- Lauren Hana Chai, 'Idolization'.
2nd Place- Valerie Y.O. Kim, 'Conversations 6'.
3rd Place- Gina Hartig Williams, 'Run Off'.
