Please contact the exhibit coordinator, Kanani Daley kdaley@ehcc, ASAP to schedule support for your submission by the deadline. 

Please call (808) 961-5711 or email to check on the status of your membership and to receive the EHCC Member or Kama'aina discount code. 

25,000 years ago, on the banks of the Danube River in Austria, a woman looked down at her own body and constructed a model reflective of her perspective. This was the Venus of Willendorf.  "Lumpy, faceless, almost monstrous", she stands in stark contrast to the male-oriented, refined, idealized female form omnipresent in Western art history.

We are calling women artists to share their perspectives through visual arts, poetry, short stories, spoken word, comedy, song, and film. We are seeking the voices of women, including traditionally underrepresented groups - trans women, queer women, women of all cultures, ethnicities, and ages, to participate in a dynamic exhibition from her perspective.

We encourage new ideas that challenge conventions. 

  • Visual arts - all mediums are accepted for jury - 2D, 3D, installation, and works on paper and paintings. Please send JPEG submissions - 1- 3 entries. Jurors: Jacqueline Flowers ( and Meidor Hu 

Meidor Hu is an interdisciplinary artist comfortable moving from paint, print, drawings or installations. Before returning to teach at Hawaii Community College and UHH, Hu worked as a graphic designer and consultant across a broad range of design-related projects in the San Francisco Bay area. 

She currently teaches traditional studio art classes and digital media classes here at HawCC. Meidor received a BA from University of Hawaii at Hilo and an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work on interdisciplinary projects has been displayed locally at the Hawaii State Museum, The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu Academy of Arts and in the continental U.S.

Her research is in the deconstruction of colors, patterns and meanings in Chinese opera painted faces. She is interested in the dislocation/relocation of the figure with painted face from the artifice of the stage to the natural environment of landscape.

The Opening night will include an open mic for spoken word, stand-up comedy, and song. 

Gallery space can be viewed here!
