Dia de los muertos is a traditional Mexican holiday that focuses on gatherings of family and friends to remember those who have died. Altars, marigolds, offerings, skulls, and Monarch butterflies are commonly seen during this time and it is reflected in the art created for the show.

The exhibit will feature more than 20 artists and media include acrylics on canvas and wood, art dolls, paper mache, paper cut outs, graphite on paper, sculpture, and mixed media works.

Adopt a doll.

Dollmakers III will showcase numerous doll makers from different parts of the U.S. and Canada, alongside works from several of our Cactus family members. This exhibit features painstakingly handcrafted works; some cute, some hauntingly beautiful, and others slightly twisted. The styles are as diverse as the artists who created them, each full of quirky personality - true mixed media wonders.
