Wall 'o Tikis

On Friday night Larry and I attended the opening of the new show at La Luz de Jesus / Wacko in East Hollywood. The show is called "The Art of Tiki." The show is in conjunction with a new book, also called "The Art of Tiki."  
We knew the show would be packed, since this is the 21st anniversary of tiki shows at La Luz. Billy Shire, owner of the gallery did a FANTASTIC job mounting this exhibition. He also published the book! Many of the contributors to the book were in attendance. There was a book signing previous to the show opening.
Author, Sven Kirsten

Almost everyone was dressed in Hawaiian attire. Luckily, the weather in Los Angeles on this October evening complied. We'd had 90 degree temperatures during the day, perfect for tiki togs!

It was great fun seeing many of our friends. The gallery was SO crowded, that I could not really appreciate the artwork. I must return to the gallery on a quiet Sunday and view the show!
