Opening at the HPU Art Gallery:
Moth, Nail, X
May 7 - July 21

An exhibition of work by Puni Kukahiko. “These are the symbolic images that tell my story of desire and sacrifies here in Hawai‘i. Part of my inheritance as an Hawaiian woman is an image of romance, sexuality, paradise. While that is the part most often seen in art and literature, my inheritance is much greater. The images--Moth, Nail, X--speak of ancestors and power beyond the boundaries of plastic tiki, dashboard hula dancers, and coconut bras.”

Opening reception 4-6 p.m. May 7.
45-045 Kamehameha Highway
Kane‘ohe
