I'm planning an early Saturday morning hike up to Tahquitz Falls if anyone who is not hung over wants to join me




I know what you're doing...

You're looking for Shangri La and hoping that a young Jane Wyatt will be swimming nude in the pool at the falls.

Well, I went last night but I didn't take any pics for you guys, sorry. The event was very well attended, pretty much filled to capacity - hope that translated to some sales for the artists. Lake Surfer and Dawn, your pieces looked very impressive there. Dawn, I noticed a little figure near the signature on the "Mystic Order of Mu" and I didn't notice on your paintings before - what is the significance?

alright I'm home from work you've had all day to post some pics, stop torturing us!!!!

Mike the little figure you noticed was part of my signature. When I actually remember to sign my pieces I like to use my own hieroglyphs that say "tiki Dawn"

This was really an inspiring show !! To see such a wide diversity of Tiki art across different mediums and styles in ONE place was amazing. It really illustrated net new Tiki Revival creativity, which stayed true to the original spirit of mid-century Tiki-style and its modernist influences.

My apologies to the virtual Ohana but I get the feeling those of us in attendance may have dropped the ball with the photography. It was just so crowded with so much socializing (lots of TC in the house) and art admiration that I didn't think to take pictures, especially with Tonga Tom in the house. He was however unfortunately sans camera. I think Soccertiki and WooHoo might have gotten some snaps.

I did see the Bigbro stealthily taking pictures. I'm sure his professional skills will do the best justice to all of the great art.

What a great show. Seeing the variety in style and medium of the amazing art all in one place was amazing. The Martini Kings were a perfect band for the event. Also fun to see all of the TC characters mixed in with the "Palms Springs" crowd.

Follow the sky lights to the palm trees at the M Modern.



There was a great photo shot with Sven and all of the featured artists who were there. Unfortunately I did not get much of a picture of the scene amongst all of the paparazzi.








The gallery hired a professional photographer who was shooting all night. Hopefully those photos will show up on the web at some point.

I got a few snaps and a piece or 2 of video and as soon as I get back to Casa Grande I'll process them and post'em
Got a new, shrink wrapped copy of "TIKI MODERN" and had Sven sign it!
Wish I had an xtra $950 (or my wife wasn't standing nest to me at the time) for Bosko had a hellacool crashed ufo piece up that even had some "The Satan Bug" vibe going even though it was in color.

John-O, I can't help you with the spectacled artists, but Kirby looks like he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar

(In Kirby's defense, this picture was taken while they were setting up for a large group shot and he wasn't ready for a picture. Still, if I were writing the "Tiki Enquirer" I could SO write a tabloid headline based on that photo! )

Bear, I didn't find Shangri La, but the falls were beautiful
