Hello
I am putting together an exhibition at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre - a contemporary art gallery in the North of England.

Tiki Today runs from 27 March until 19 June 2010 with a special Day and Evening of Celebration on the 5 June.

I'm sure I have approached some members of this forum already (in which case hi!).

But there is still room for more contributors...

I am keen to hear from artists, artisans, crafters, makers and collectors especially of the following;
- large scale sculptures and carvings suitable for outdoors
- jewellery makers
- collectors of vintage Tiki artefacts
to loan work for the exhibition period.

Location is not an issue in most cases.

If you would like more information or are interested in taking part please send details and images to
michelle.lally@northlincs.gov.uk
or contact me via 20-21's myspace or facebook.

You can find out more about the gallery at
http://www.myspace.com/2021_visual_arts_centre
or our official site
http://www.northlincs.gov.uk/20-21

We are also a member of the Own Art scheme which provides interest free loans to make collecting art more affordable and support living artists.
http://www.artscouncil.org.uk/ownart/

I will update this post with a list of confirmed artists and more details soon.

Bye for now.

Brilliant - I think a Tiki Today cake is in order then!

If anyone is planning a journey to the show email me or send me a message on here with your address and I can send out the North Lincolnshire Visitor and Accommodation Guide along with the gallery bumf.

For accommodation I can recommend the Downs Guesthouse if you like good old fashioned cheap and cheerful B & B's, and it's just a short stroll to 20-21 Visual Arts Centre
http://www.thedownsguesthouse.co.uk/
Tell Allan we sent you.

There is also the usual Travelodge and Premier Inn chains in Scunthorpe who do some really cheap advance deals.

For something a bit more luxurious try
http://www.qhotels.co.uk/hotels/forest-pines-near-brigg.aspx

You can also search on the tourism website
http://www.northlincs.gov.uk/NorthLincs/Leisure/tourism/

If anyone needs any more info about the town and things to do just let me know.

I've seen a few of the bits headed for this show and it looks like it's going to be amazing.

Really looking forward to it!

Got a stack of stuff, most unseen, going up to the show. Some 3D work and new paintings.

Looking forward to the June event.

Need to get back to carving the mug master now...

I have a couple of new bits going in, plus a couple that haven't been seen in the UK yet.

Here's a sneaky peak at Opening Night At Mysterio's (Curious Bar From Beyond...)





It's all wood, silver, clay and velvet... Classy!

And, here's a look at the 'flat' version of Doug's First Day On The Job



In the flesh, it's an acetate layer over canvas but that's near impossible to get a decent photo of... So off to the show if you want to see it for real!

Loving everyone's stuff and I can't wait to have a good look around the show, see you there!

Looks like it will be a great show and I hope we'll be able to make the day of celebration.

Wow - a proper UK tiki event! Been discussing this with my dude, and looks like we'll be going for the celebration day in June! Just back from a trip to Scottsdale and Las Vegas, where we visited a few tiki bars (most notably Frankie's in Vegas) and we need more tiki!

Sounds awesome - now we just need to book a hotel and tickets and we are there
