Molokai artists are welcomed to submit their work. Need some reasons to enter?
It’s a prestigious exhibition location with over 2,000 visitor. More than $4,500 in cash prizes will be awarded. There’s a new $500 award for collaborative work sponsored by the Timothy Y. C. Choy Fund of the Hawaii Community Foundation. We have scheduled acquisition visits from HoMA and HSFCA.

Emerging and established artists from across the state are encouraged to submit up to six completed artworks for jurying.

The exhibition is open to residents of Hawaii for artworks in the categories of clay, fiber, glass, wood, metal, stone, and mixed media. Entries must be of original design and created independently within the last two years. Artworks previously included in juried exhibitions on Oahu or displayed in any Honolulu Museum of Art School exhibition are ineligible.
