Cactus Bra Space is the oldest alternative artist run space in San Antonio, Texas.  Its history began in 1993 when a few young artists borrowed a working studio, cleaned it up, hung some spotlights and opened the doors for a one night exhibition.  The overwhelming response inspired studio tenants, Leigh Anne Lester and Jayne Lawrence to open the doors permanently.  The transformation from working studio to gallery took two years and in 1995 Cactus Bra Space was fully established.   Exhibitions were scheduled every two months for the first two years.  Since that time Cactus has grown in conjunction with the San Antonio Art Movement and new work is exhibited on the first Friday of every month from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.  Visitors who miss the opening can make an appointment by phone to see the exhibition.  (210)226-6688

Mission Statement:
The Cactus Bra Space is a non-profit gallery that provides artists an opportunity to investigate their ideas in a professional setting while taking the commercialization out of the forefront of the gallery experience.
