For the past year Otto and I have been working on our dream of having a Tiki Art Show in San Francisco. Somehow we got over 60 of the top artist to agree to make our dream a reality! We even put together a 90 page full color catalog in conjunction with this gallery show. If you can't make the opening weekend the art show will be up for 3 weeks. Check it out if you are interested!

I had a chance to see Otto's proof copy of the full-color book, and this show has an AMAZING variety of tiki art--it's a big show, with a lot of great people represented. Also, nearly all of the original artwork in the show is astoundingly affordable. My personal favorite piece in the show (though it falls a bit outside the "affordable" category--it's just too jaw-droppingly cool, and a TON of effort must have gone into it) is Crazy Al's chess set. I won't attempt to describe it, it should just be seen. Maybe Al's got a pic he can post. Too cool.

Still figuring out if I can make it up for the show, I've got some crazy business trips next month. I'm going to try real hard, tho!

Sorry to post this twice.
Humuhumu was right. This thread is more appropriate.

I just got the 'Tiki Art Now!" book in the mail and it is truly an awesome book.
An introduction by Otto, amazing pictures of the work, and biographies on all the artists.
A definite must for the tiki library.
Hope to see some of you at Tonga and/or the show!

Should I order the book ahead of time from the gallery or will there be plenty of them at the show on Friday?

WOW!

Congrats on putting together such an incredible collection.

I remember you talking about it when Angela and I were out there but my reaction was certainly understated a bit seeing the reality of how many fantastic pieces you've assembled.

Thanks for doing the book for us auslanders. I'll certainly enjoy that for years to come.
