We have had some great art come out of the Art Swaps over the years, I wanted to put them all together for easy reference :)
I count 15 Swap dating back to 2008, 89 different participants, and well over 250 works of art.
For those not familiar with the Art Swap process, participants create a work of art (loosely) based on the decided theme then names are drawn and matched in pairs. Those pairs of people exchange art. Over the years, the Art Swaps have been a veritable who’s who of Tiki Central artists and lots of fun. We are holding Swaps about every 6 months, artists of all skill levels are welcome to participate :)

I'm not sure if i should be posting this comment as it's going to ruin the flow of the thread, but damn Mike, either you must have been really bored or just had a lot of spare time on your hands, because that would have taken quite a while to compile.

It's a good idea having all the swaps in the one thread and being able to see the topic and finished pieces in one post. You've done a great job putting them/this together. Good work.

Thanks Swizz, I was bored at work :lol:

Post away, I've reserved all the space I need :wink:

Oh man, my memory has failed me. It was so much fun to see what had been made in the past for swapping. Babalu's snake mug with the bird was so over the top. Thank you Mike this is a fun ride. Wendy

OMG I LOVE

Mike- awesome, dats a lot o work

My iPhone sux, some of the photos show up out of order :(

I love volcanos and I just love this piece, my favorite.

That brings back some memories!

Hewey sent me links to the earliest Swaps, I just posted the results from the very first TC Swap in 2007

Wow!
Thanks Mike!
What a wonderful collection of talent,brilliance,absolute cleverness,and a LOT of very special pieces!
WOWz!

I love it!

MadDogMike I looked at every page again. It's an irresistible thread of photos. Thank you for keeping it up to date. Wendy

Mike- thanks for posting
U da man

Very cool to look back at all the art swap pieces.

Unfortunately I am moving and need to pass on a piece I received, the beautiful Na Iwi O Pele lamp made by Traveling Jones. It's a great piece and any tikiphile would be proud to own it.

So in the spirit of the swap I am having a FREE raffle.

Please go over here:
http://www.tikicentral.com/viewtopic.php?topic=51835&forum=12&start=last&

And make a post, stating why YOU think YOU deserve to win it. The best 3 answers (my choice) will get an extra chance in the drawing.

There are more details in that thread. Get those answers in soon, I want to send it off right after the holidays.

Very cool! Thanks Badd Tiki

Added the latest Swap - 100 Years of Stephen Crane

Yeah, Tikytonyd never delivered. I was fortunate in receiving a wonderful piece from a different Ohana instead, Erich Troudt.
