Reception for the artists: Saturday Aug. 20th, 1 pm
Lahaina Room in The Crown Plaza Hotel
as part of Tiki Oasis 11, August 18-21, 2010

Inspired by toreadors and jai alai, street tacos and warm summer nights on sandy beaches, “Burros, Black Velvets, & Other Delights” conjures up visions of tequila fueled visits to Tijuana when Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass were king. Contributing artists were asked to submit an original black velvet painting or modify a random Tijuana style Burro or Piggy Bank sent to the artist by show curators Baby Doe and Reesenik

All proceeds from “Burros, Black Velvets, & Other Delights” will benefit WILDCOAST, founded in 2000 to protect and conserve some of the most ecologically important coastal wildlands, lagoons, and marine ecosystems that remain in California and throughout Baja California. WILDCOAST has successfully conserved more than 1.8 million acres of coastal wildlands and wildlife habitats. WiLDCOAST works with local communities in San Diego to protect and restore their beaches and open spaces through hands-on restoration projects, cleanups, environmental education and community involvement.
