Is it getting about time for Art Swap 2018? We wrap it up at the end of July again so that any Swappers attending Tiki Oasis could exchange in person.

What are your ideas for a theme? There have some times in the past where participation was limited because the theme was too narrow so keep that in mind. One nice broad theme I heard was "My Favorite Tiki". I don't think we have done "TV or Movie Tiki". Any other suggestions?

As much as I hate to admit it, Tiki Central has become more of a desert island rather than the lush tropical isle it used to be. If you are in contact with any of the past Swappers who no longer frequent TC, let them know about this thread and encourage them to participate

Here is a link to all the previous Swaps for inspiration

I have a suggestion that the theme be less specific like the Rose Parade. Here are a few themes from the parade with the word tiki added:

2016 Find Your Adventure in Tiki
2015 Inspiring Tiki Stories
2014 Dreams Come True in Tiki
2013 Oh, the Places You’ll Go in Tiki
2012 Just Imagine tiki...
2011 Building Dreams, Friendships & Memories in Tiki

2009 Hats Off to Entertainment in Tiki
2008 Passport to the World’s Celebrations in Tiki
2007 Our Good Nature in Tiki
2006 It’s Magical Tiki

2002 Good Times in Tiki
2001 Fabric of America in Tiki

MaukaHale that was a lot of typing. Some fun ideas there.

MadDogMike how about My Own Tiki Design. We can all be inventors. I've often thought it would be fun to pick my favorite eyes, nose, mouth etc. from multiple tikis and combine them to see how it would look. This can be done in any medium.


Count me in no matter what the subject is going to be. Wendy

The Stephen Crane birthday theme seemed to provide good inspiration and freedom for last year’s swappers. I was wondering about something similar by commemorating Sven and Otto’s recently released book, “The Art of Tiki.” It features a lot of different stuff (new art, pieces from the Riechek collection) that swappers could draw from.

Thanks MDM I'm in, "Favorite Hawaiian Memory" would work for all kinds of medium, and everyone has one even if you have never been to the islands. Like that first tiki necklace with the jewell eyes or your favorite aloha clothing, and each piece would come with a story built in.

A couple of MaukaHale’s “Rose Parade” themes are interesting, specifically “Tiki Dreams Come True” and “Oh, the Tiki Places You’ll Go!”

MadDogMike is waiting to see how many more people want to participate in this swap and also to add ideas.
Don't delay the clock is ticking. Wendy

It always makes my heart smile to participate in the TAS... so I'm definitely in!

My theme suggestion is,"I Dream of Tiki". It would challenge our mind's eye to discover infinite dimensions and create beyond the surreal.

I like Movie or TV tikis a lot or even my favorite tiki but I don't know if I will be participating. I've lost my create mojo as of late but even if I don't participate I'll be cheering you all on from the sidelines!

Miss you all!

Hi guys, I have not forgotten this thread Been busy but hope to be free(er) after this weekend. My problem is that I don't have access to my Art Swap e-mail list and I want to be sure to send a notification to some of the past participants who may not venture onto TC as frequently. Should be able to hook that up early next week
