Aloha~

Got back to the island. Here's some photos o da art show.

Is it Bela Lugosi? Otto? The Count (from Sesame Street)? Or all three?

FBI (From Big Island) Tiki Shark Parker and Malae Lua Togafau

Hassan (Headhunter), that attractive young girl who was hanging with Hassan (and who was too young to know who Bela Lugosi was), and Tiki shark (me).

Packed house

Out side, security by Tiki Al.

Tiki Shark and Tiki Al

Big Toe, Tiki Shark, and LLT !!!!!!!

Big Toe, Squid, Tiki Shark, and Head Hunter!

Art Art Art....

Big, BIG, BIG MAHALO Plenty to St. Nick for putting together an amazing bunch of artists! I know he's a busy guy, and putting this show together was all extra work for him. It was an honor to be a part of it.

Really, after I helped hang it, I kept looking around and thinking how good the level of art was. The killer piece for me was Heather's Black velvet. Sheeee-eeesh! Amazing three dimensional effect of lighting against the velvet.

Thanks to everyone who was there. Great fun!

Wow, that swirly crap painted on the wall doesn't detract from the hanging art at all, does it? Another big plus for the gallery.

you wanted PICTURES?
we gots PICTURES!
prepare to experience an onslaught of VISUAL OVERLOAD!
Here's the front of the gallery and the ray at night crowd...

Let's start at the doorway...
note the price list on the right....
one there and one inside to match the NUMBERS on the pieces....
eh....

i didn't get a shot of Al's or Ray's tiki unfortunately..
but they were to your immediate left...
let's continue our tour....
I'm not going to mention any artist's names
so you can get how hard it was to decipher the title and artist and price
with a NUMBER sticker by each piece!
















Here's the other pricelist/show list....
the only one inside and it's 3 feet from the floor...
sigh....







Welpers, I'll post the funny people and artists being all pretentious photos later!
Alohaw!

Now it's time to punish you all with my vacation photo's from San Diego. I was lucky enough to meet up with Nick Camera(Tiki Magazine) and the artist Dave Warshaw (featured in the Bamboo Ben Tiki Mag) for a drink at the pink elephant and a listen to the band "The cheap Lay's". It was three days of Surf/Sand/Tiki






































































The Pro's!!!!!!! This Gallery will get better foot traffic then Tiki Freakout and M Modern because of the location........My brother use to live in hillcrest and that area spends money and loves gallery's.

The Con's !!!!!!! No prices, you will see the prices behind Doug's piece that's sitting on the floor...

Great job Nick, You got together the best artist in Lowbrow and Tiki of today.....even though you didn't have Sam Gambino and Derek Yaniger!!!!!!

Artist of Tiki: Help us find a location that would be great for a Tiki show......We want to keep these shows going around the California area but need a gallery we can depend on and partner with ...It's harder then you know.........

P.S. GREAT MUGS HEADHUNTER AND NICK!!!!!!!!!!THANKS FOR SAVING ME A PAIR!!!!!!

Yes they were on the floor,and not to add insulate to injury but I had to pull them out from behind the chair to get a picture. I got to the gallery on Tuesday night after having a drink with Nick at the Pink Elephant around 10p.m. and nothing was priced still.....I asked the owner the price on two pieces and he couldn't tell me what they sell for.....If you look at the price list behind Dougs AWESOME original you will see that it is also incomplete. The owner was working in back on his own art with no indications that he would be pricing anything.






This Photo reminds me of a ROBB HAMEL Black velvet

Professional, as in what the "gallery" is not?
