DOLLMAKERS II - An exhibit of handcrafted art dolls
Cactus Gallery proudly presents its second annual dollmakers exhibit. The opening reception, which coincides with Northeast Los Angeles' (NELA) Second Saturday Gallery Night, is free and open to the public and will take place on Saturday, March 10th, from 7-10 pm.
Dollmakers will showcase numerous new artists from different parts of the U.S. and Canada, alongside new works from several of our regular Cactus family members.
This exhibit features painstakingly beautiful, slightly twisted, and hauntingly lifelike dolls. The styles are as diverse as the artists who created them, each full of quirky personality - true mixed media wonders. Dollmakers aims to shine a light on some of the most exciting dolllmakers around.
Featured artist Sheri DeBow creates mixed media dolls ranging from sweet to haunting, imbuing each doll with an individuality and personality unlike any other. Each art doll is individually sculpted from head to toe by Sheri, then painted and clothed. The beauty and detail of DeBow's art dolls create amazing presence and personality.
DeBow lives in the Napa Valley of California with her husband and five beautiful children. Her art dolls are shown in galleries all over the country including Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, New Orleans and as far off as Canada. Sheri's "Bunny Girls" were featured on the cover of Art Doll Quarterly, Volume 9; May 2011.
