"The Song of the Birds" - BIRD themed group show OPENS June 14th

Cactus Gallery is pleased to present THE SONG OF THE BIRDS, our 6th annual bird themed group show.

Show Runs: June 14 - July 8, 2014
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 14, 2014 - 3p-7p
Held in conjunction with's Second Saturday Gallery Night

Gallery hours: Saturday and Sunday 11a-5p and by appointment.

People have always been fascinated by animals. Birds, in particular, seem to have sacred and secular meanings, which can be positive and negative, and their use is evident in religion, music, mythological tales, and visual art. These feathered creatures can convey emotion or even comment on society. Please join us to celebrate their powerful symbolism as seen through the eyes of 40+ artists.

This show features an eclectic collection of media: oil and acrylic on canvas and wood, mixed media on canvas and wood, textile, paper mache, ceramic, linocut prints, pencil, pen, and ink on paper, prismacolor, chalk pastel and colored pencil on paper and mylar, polymer clay and paper clay sculptures, hand stitched felt and mixed media sculpture.

We are very pleased to also be working with River Of Wings (ROW) and will be exhibiting a few of their kinetic, avian inspired sculptures during the reception. The birds are being reimagined and personalized by members of the community. During this year's Frogtown Art Walk, the “flock” of 60 will be installed along a half mile section of the bike path of the L.A. River!! They will then travel to other destinations.
