Available works for LOTERIA! exhibit

LOTERIA! Group Show
March 14 - April 8
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 14, 2015 * 6p-10p

Cactus Gallery is pleased to present our first exhibit of 2015 -- LOTERIA!

La Loteria is a game of chance played like Bingo, only with pictures instead of numbers. The Loteria deck uses 54 images, including characters, instruments, flora, animalia, and objects which have become iconic and synonymous with Mexican culture.

Our LOTERIA! exhibit will feature 54 paintings and mixed media works by 50 artists who used their assigned card as a springboard for their modern interpretation and the results are delightful. For context, displayed alongside the interpretations, will be the most commonly recognized standard deck by Pasatiempos Gallo, S.A.

Please join us for this charming show and play La Loteria with us during the reception
for a chance to win a signed original from one of the participating artists!

Email Sandra at semastroianni70@yahoo.com or call 323.801.8669 to visit the gallery or for purchase information.

We accept all forms of payment and the gallery is open to installment plans to help you grow your collection.

This is the iconic deck by Pasatiempos Gallo, Inc. originally printed in 1887 in Queretaro, MX.

View of the LOTERIA! exhibit. Runs through April 8, 2015.
