Exhibited: San Francisco Art Association's Annual of 1918; and reproduced in 'The Wasp', an early San Francisco Bay Area publication;

March-April (1918): Exhibits in the exhibition "California" at Hill Tolerton Print Rooms; other artists exhibiting are Rinaldo Cuneo, Clarence Hinkle, Phillips Frisbie Lewis, Gottardo Piazzoni, Arthur Putnam and Ralph Stackpole.

In the summer of 1918 Hansen conferred in Carmel with William Ritschel who recognized his immense talent and arranged for Hansen’s first solo exhibition in New York City. This show reportedly netted sales of seven thousand dollars and opened “America’s top galleries…to admit the paintings of this rough-hewn fellow from California".
