Tiki Oasis, the four-day annual gathering of “spies, bad guys and glamour girls” — as described in the story about what happened at last year’s event after too many Mai Tais, on CARTWHEEL here — is scheduled for Aug. 15-18, 2013 at San Diego’s Crowne Plaza Hotel.
The 2013 event is a music and art party themed “Hulabilly: It’s a Hawaiian Hootenanny.” In the Lahaina Room of the Crowne Plaza, you’ll find “Tiki Oasis 2013 Pop-Up Art Gallery” with an exhibition titled, “Americana Tiki.” More than 20 artists include Atomikitty, Wendy Cevola, Ken Ruzic, and more, with all original works for sale. An artist reception is Aug. 17 from noon to 1pm, with appearances by the artists, as well as the winner of the Miss Tiki Oasis contest and DJ Astro 138. The exhibition will be on view Aug. 16 – 18, 2013 from 11am to 4pm.
Additionally, in the Lagoon Room, look for “Artist Alley” operating during the same hours with works by Kreature Kid Adam Dougherty, Norm Daniels, Tom Cooper and a flirtatious Bunny Yeager photography exhibit presented by Harold Golen Gallery.
