First and foremost I want to thank Big Toe for toting me up to LA and
Damon's.I had such a great time .My hats off to all that were involved in
putting this event together.This is the best event I have been to in a while.
There are quite a few more talented tiki artist that truly deserve to be in that
caliber of exhibition that were not represented but wanted to mention, too many
to list their names.Paul Clemens I am sorry I did not see you or get a chance to talk
to you at this great event .Great pics and commentary Paul-nice job.If you live
in So Cal. you owe it to yourself to go see this exhibition.Won't be quite the same
without a band or the who's who in TIKI, but still well worth the visit.I wonder if
they will have a closing show?
Cheers,
Trader Bill

This was the first time I've seen a two-headed Kava Kava Man and Moai.


The title of the piece on the right was amazing: "Fish to Crocodile to Bird to Man"

...and here's the man himself with a spectacular example of his work. Sorry -- he told me it's already taken & the guy's just waiting to pick it up when the show closes! (I HATE him, whoever he is!)



True story, and I'm sorry I just found this thread today. found out from Otto about this show, but it'd slipped my mind until I saw the Ad for it in the LA Times. So along with my Wife and Step Son, we went to the exhibit earlier this afternoon, and bumped into the guy who bought this piece. I didn't catch his name sorry, but he will be at Oasis this weekend, and he's looking into becoming an Art Dealer and was interested in getting my business card...but stupid me, I didn't have to give. Damn me.....

But the exhibit itself was great. Gave me lots of great ideas for my own work, just gotta sit down and get to it.

This show is still going on, and it is great. Hardly any people, and I had the whole place to myself. I will post pictures later this weekend. If you haven't visited yet, you have plenty of time. It is well worth it (even if it is free).

As promised, more photos from In Search of Tiki. I was snapping away like crazy because there is a small sign in front of the building saying only commercial photographs were banned. After I had taken about 80 photos inside, the lady behind the counter told me I wasn't allowed, then drew my attention to a small 6x8 sign stating the same. I gladly put my camera away since I had all the photos I wanted. I tried not to duplicate what has already been posted.



























Lil' TikiMango had a blast there.




Did I mention the Gift Shop is fully stocked again.

I also got to drop in on this exhibit last week when in LA.
Definitely worth a drop-by, if you haven't seen it, yet.
Very nicely done!

AND - if you buy $20 worth in the gift shop, they'll give you a brochure with full pictures & descriptions of the exhibit items!
