Ulla Anobile is an artist we have featured many times in Hometown Pasadena, as we are repeatedly drawn to her work—the folk art aspect to it; the reflection of her heritage on her art; the use of natural materials such as driftwood, as well as paper mache, cloth, and embroidery; the attention to detail; and […]

Over the Moon & Under the Stars

Over the Moon & Under the Stars

We admit we publish a lot of pieces promoting exhibits at the Cactus Gallery. This is because we continue to be enamored of the variety of works that the artists create and the varied exhibitions that Cactus owner Sandra Mastroianni produces. From Tiny Treasures, Dollmakers, and Birdly Delights to Day of the Dead and ¡Loteria!, […]

Flower Buds & Silk Floss

Flower Buds & Silk Floss

Artist Ulla Anobile is a creator and an observer. She observes as she walks her neighborhood and she’s kindly allowed us to share more of her photos… Photo, right: “Muru the Cat lounges on my patio railing on a very hot August day.

Ulla’s Spring & the Ancestors

Ulla’s Spring & the Ancestors

We admit, we’ve got it bad for Ulla. Let us clarify, Ulla’s Art. Ulla Anobile herself is quite wonderful with a dry wit, which is perhaps thanks to her Finnish origins and for which we then thank her Finnish ancestors. And speaking of ancestors, besides sharing her images of the arrival of spring, Ulla is […]

¡Loteria!

¡Loteria!

The rooster, the dandy, the devil, the mermaid, the watermelon. These are the names of five cards in Loteria, a game similar to bingo, which originated in Italy in the 15th century, was brought to New Spain (Mexico) in 1769, and was  a hobby of the upper classes before becoming a tradition at Mexican fairs.

Dollmakers III

Dollmakers III

Dolls. Everywhere dolls. Dolls that are cute and whimsical. Dolls that are mystical and seem imparted with soul. Dolls that are odd and quirky. Dolls that are peculiar and disturbing. Dozens of artists—local, national, and some of our Canadian neighbors—will show and sell individually-crafted, handmade art dolls and sculptures at Cactus Gallery’s “Dollmakers III” exhibit, along with “Día de […]
