BAD GIRLS and Outcasts – Cactus Gallery: April 22nd, 2017

The witchy, wicked, wanton, weird women of fairytales, myths and legends. Featured artist: Ulla Anobile

Scheduled to run: April 22 — May 27, 2017

RECEPTION: Saturday, April 22 * 6p-9p

Cactus Gallery 3001 N Coolidge Ave, Los Angeles, California 90039

BAD GIRLS & OUTCASTS will feature the women of fairytales, myths and legends who don’t necessarily get Prince Charming. Or if they do, he leaves her for the goody-two-shoes Princess. These women may often go unrecognized (or is simply hidden away), because they don’t fit the archetypal feminine canon of princesses and heroines, or the safe progression from maiden to mother to crone.

Our women may live, even thrive, on the dark side of the Moon, at the bottom of the ocean, in the depths of the primeval forest, in the hidden, rebellious, shadowy realms of a woman’s soul, or in the rejected, often devalued parts of a man’s psyche.

Our women are strong, wild, opinionated, seductive, bawdy, despondent, spurned, full of tears or fury. They can be crafty, vengeful, devious, evil. They go on their solitary way and do not aim to please anyone or ask for anyone’s approval.

They hope, however, to be recognized as who they are and to be seen.

LOTERIA III -Cactus Gallery: March 11th, 2017

For their MARCH 2017 exhibit the gallery will be celebrating its 12th birthday by hosting its third annual “LOTERIA” themed exhibit. The exhibit will feature the original 54 images from the most commonly recognized standard deck by Pasatiempos Gallo, S.A. Join us for this charming show and play LOTERIA with us during the opening reception!
Participating artists used their assigned card as a springboard for their modern interpretation and the results are delightful. For context, the original card will be displayed alongside the modern interpretations.
Loteria is a traditional Mexican game of chance, played like Bingo, that uses images on a deck of cards instead of plain numbers. The Loteria deck uses 54 images, including characters, instruments, flora, animalia, and objects which have become iconic and synonymous with Mexican culture. Each has a name and an assigned number. The cards are very colorful and the imagery on them is broadly recognized in all of Mexico, other Latin American countries, as well as European nations.
