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!
