A juried exhibition of Polynesian-inspired art from the darkest corners of the jungle of the mind.
Opens Friday, July 1, 2011, from 6 to 9 P.M. (In conjunction with the Oakland Art Murmur)
ARTIST’S RECEPTION: Saturday, July 16, from 4 – 6 P.M.
Just to prove it has finally gone completely coocoo,
without compromising its vision for exhibiting great art, Studio
Quercus will transform into a deranged vision of the South Pacific for
its upcoming juried group show, Tiki , running July 1 to August 13.
A wholly unprepared public is invited to step into a Thatched Refuge
for exotic imagery and terrifying carved figures that only monsoonaddled
minds could dream up. It is a celebration of Tiki in America: a
volcanic admixture of anthropology and overactive imaginations, a
lava-flow of creativity, a symphonic din of exotic birds and ukuleles, a
manageable mob of hand-hewn moai and taboo totems, and all the
coconut curiosities you could ever hope to see.
A qualified jury will decide what goes on the walls and hangs from the
FREE to the public
