CAROL MAGNATTA: FRILLS, FURS & FEATHERS runs January 11 – March 26th in the Easton Hospital Gallery. About the show, the artist states: “After years of creating realistic, figurative paintings in oil, I decided to playfully explore pastel drawing. These works are based on those drawings, which evolved into large oil paintings. Drawing my inspirations from models who play at dress up, I began distorting their posture and transforming their features into cartoonish facades clothed in fur, feathers, and lace, enacting the role of someone else. Each model portrays an innocence that is poignant, yet playful and alluring. “
