My brother and I discussed the ingredients to a cucumber based rum cocktail drink for Leroy's Happy hour. Last night he came up with the right balance. On Saturday, PolyPop and Tiki Diablo will let us know if he did. Hope to have more TC'ers show up. See you at the art show.

Thanks for putting me on the spot. If the "Tiki Nui Cup" is a dud, you can take the credit.
Getting back on track- I am anxious to see Leroy's latest. Had a great time at Leroy's Whittier show last fall.

Awesome show. Leroy has lots of items on display and some for sale. HB Tiki (Roger) was first to buy one of Leroy's original works. Great buy Roger.

Be there or be square! The breadth of Leroy's work at this show is amazing. Only on for one more day, tomorrow, Sunday, from 11:00 - 5:00. Revel in the artistic horn-of-plenty of the last active Tiki carver of the Golden age of Tiki!



There are not only his classic Marquesans, but Oceanic art of every origin and size...



...from crazy...



...to cool...



...and all under the roof of a great modernist church...



...with a Leroy-carved canoe in front of the altar:



(for tomorrow's 10:00 o'clock sermon)



The front foyer of the church shows some amazing pieces of Leroy's non-Tiki art..



Stuff that would look good in any modernist living room:







There are many more pieces to see here, PLUS, in the building next to the church...



...there is a whole nother gallery with Leroy's paintings and wall carvings!:








I even found a photo of the Moai which Leroy carved in my front yard in situ in 1993

I must say I was totally bowled over by the amount and quality of your work, Leroy!



Thank you for the eye candy overload!

Mahalo, everyone for your complementary comments. I've had fun talking with everyone that has come by the show. (Rev. Bamboo Ben must of slipped on in and out with an invisible cloak) You will most likely find me in the hall -featured artist room. There is one more day- serves at the church 10:00 am -with my art as an illustration -anyone welcome. Doors for show open at 11:30 - 5:00 hope to see you there.
We had a good time at TikiVato's cocktail party Sat night thanks for the invite and tie-in to my show. My wife, daughter and I had a nice time and enjoyed the conversation with all. Pupus, drinks and music and don't forget the key-lime cake (We won't! - Who has the recipe?) I had the pleasure of talking with Chris Nichols (LA. Magazine) at the show and invited him to the party as well.

I just wanted to bring this to the top one more time this Sunday morning, while people still have a chance to go and see the show. And buy something, it's gonna go up in price! If there ever was an exhibition that could be called a complete overview/retrospective (style-wise) of a Tiki artist's/sculptor's work, this is it! Leroy will exhibit in the future, but he really poured his heart and sweat into this one.

I greatly regret that my schedule did not permit me to take part in the afternoon's cocktail reception, it would have been great to see everybody.

Indeed Sven, Leroy is a great Artist, a greater Man. It's a beautiful day to go the Festival of Arts and see Leroy's amazing work and purchase a part of history.
It was an honor to host a reception for Leroy and his family. Here's a few pictures of the happy hour:
