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!
