A Cactus Birthday

Mar 4, 2014

Lena Sayadian 9 300x207 A Cactus Birthday Ulla Anobile terri berman sarah stone Sandra Mastroianni rasa jadzeviciene patrick haemmerlein oscar rosales mavis leahy local artists janet olenik Frogtown Cactus Gallery art shows art exhibits  photoFor nine years Sandra Mastroianni has been hanging and hustling, organizing and managing, networking and promoting. Her outlet:  Cactus Gallery. Her motivation:  to exhibit and sell traditional, outsider, and folk art; loyally promoting and supporting the artists who create it.

Names you’ve heard before in these pages, such as Mavis Leahy, Janet Olenik, Oscar Rosales, and Ulla Anobile will be among the more than 60 artists participating in “9,” celebrating Cactus Gallery’s ninth birthday.

It’s a battle selling art. Finding an appropriate space in a location-friendly spot. The task of organizing dozens of artists and their works for an exhibit, let alone hosting the opening reception, followed by the hours manning the show and the endless task of keeping up interest and bringing in buyers, then the closing reception and the dismantling. Maintaining Cactus as it transitioned from its old location in Eagle Rock, hovered in the rooms of Sandra’s private residence until finding a home last year in Treeline Woodworks in Frogtown, Elysian Valley, is a labor of love—and one worth seeing, enjoying, and subsidizing.
