An upcoming exhibit at Kahilu Theatre, called “Art Off The Wall,” will feature 3D works between Feb. 26 and April 19 in its theatre galleries.

Kahilu Theatre is seeking local artists to submit their artwork to the exhibit, including those of sculpture, glass, fiber, plastics, wood, and ceramics that are anything but flat.

Artists interested in submitting their work have just one size rule to follow: it can’t be heavier than 80 pounds or larger than 6-foot-6.

Interested entrants can obtain an entry form from the Kahilu Theatre website, and each artist can submit up to three works, with a $15 entry fee for each of them.

Entry forms can be submitted online, in person, or be printed and mailed with submission and entry fee to the theatre.


A digital image of each piece should be e-mailed to [email protected] in JPEG format with an image size of 300 dpi resolution, 4-inch-by-six-inch size. The image should accompany a brief art resume with biography, education background, and exhibition record, no longer than 250 works.


The “Art off the Wall” exhibit will open on Friday, Feb. 26 with a public reception. During the reception, awards will be handed out.

Awards include “Best of Show,” Most Promising Young Artist,” and “Eminent Old Master.” Honorable mentions will also be selected.

Entries are due by Friday, Feb. 12.


Artists selected for the exhibit will be decided by the Kahilu Gallery Committee on Tuesday, Feb. 16. Artists selected will be invited to bring their works on Tuesday, Feb. 23.

The exhibit will be open during box office hours, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday, and it will be open during every performance at the theatre.

Artists can include a retail price for their works. The Kahilu Theatre will handle all sales and collect a 25 percent commission on items sold.
