Dollmakers IV will showcase numerous doll makers from different parts of the U.S., Canada and Australia, alongside works from several of our Cactus Gallery family members. This exhibit features painstakingly handcrafted art dolls; some cute, some hauntingly beautiful, and others slightly twisted; all true mixed media wonders!
Media includes needle felt, hand carved nesting dolls, fabric, hand stitched and embroidered felt, paper clay, polymer clay, hand-dyed textiles and vintage veils, lace, and other vintage materials, assemblage using bones and found objects and more. We are excited to welcome beautifully painted nesting doll sets to the mix this year!
Our featured artist, Denise Bledsoe (California, USA), has been involved in art since childhood. Her first love was and always has been, sculpting and mixed media. She uses both ceramic and oil based clays. The 3D and textural qualities achievable through sculpture satisfies her creatively. She is a gallery favorite and her dolls are adopted quickly!
