Otto von Stroheim of Tiki News is curating his second show for San Francisco’s The Shooting Gallery, Tiki Art Two. Like last year’s Tiki Art Now! show, this group art show is also represented by a book, available soon from 9mm Books.
The festivities begin on Thursday, with the band APE headlining a show at the Make Out Room, complete with live tiki carving by lead man Crazy Al. Domenic Priore of Dumb Angel will be on hand to sign copies of his new book, Smile: The Story of Brian Wilson’s Lost Masterpiece, and Kitten on the Keys and the Wigglin’ Wahines will also be on hand to entertain. Artists from the Tiki Art Two show will be in attendance. (Perrey & Kinglsey fans: Jean-Jacques Perrey is also going to be in town that night, at Varnish Gallery, for a CD release party — it’s entirely possible to attend both events.)
The Opening Reception at the Shooting Gallery is Friday, from 7-9 p.m. Artists in this group show include Shag, Bosko, Dave Burke, Miles Thompson, Heather Watts, Paul Nielsen, Stuckie, Crazy Al Evans, Tiki Tony, and more. Munktiki will have their legendary tiki mug vending machine, with new mugs just for this event. Some tikiphiles are getting together before the opening at the San Francisco Trader Vic’s, which is just a few blocks away.
Tiki Art Two will be at the Shooting Gallery from September 14 through October 19.
