Opening Tiki Party - Sunday, August 1st
Client Reception (Private) - Wednesday, August 4th, 4-7pm
Opening Reception - Thursday, August 5th, 5-10pm
The show will feature art which contains Tiki imagery and evokes the gilded age of lust for Polynesian design, palette and mystery as approached from an Americana mid-century sensibility!
The ‘Atomic Tiki’ exhibition will serve also as the art show for Portland’s ‘Tiki Kon’ festival, and will be a featured stop on the Tiki-Kon bus tour, bringing rabid tiki fans into the gallery for partying and purchasing of the artworks! Elroy Artspace enjoys a large fan and buying base, and the gallery’s opening receptions are also part of the much-hyped monthly First Thursday Pearl District Art Walk. The exhibition will continue for the month of August as a show exclusively of this genre. Gallery commission on sales is 50% of the art sale amount.
For the purpose of this show, ‘Atomic Tiki’ is considered as any wall-hangable art of the Tiki genre. Authentic and creative representations are encouraged and heavily weighted.
Submissions are fee-free and shall be received on or before the July 18th, and limited to only one email containing no more than 5 images in .jpeg format, and must include details of the works including printed sizes, expected retail price, artist’s website, etc. Send submission via email to: AtomicTikiElroyArtspace@gmail.com - no snail-mail or phonecalls, thank you.
Art accepted into the exhibition will be announced on July 19th, and must be shipped by the artist as completely ready-to-hang and sell, and received in Portland, OR on or before Monday, July 26th.
Open to U.S. based artists at least 18 years old, both amateurs and professionals are encouraged, as we wish to showcase all talents in our shared love of this genre!
