For her series "Friends Making Funny Faces," Marie Rossettie intentionally veered from the severity of her professional work in both form and function. These portraits capture her subjects at their silliest using cheap and simple materials - brushes, ink, newsprint, wallpaper paste - to convey a sense of immediacy, intimacy, and fleeting fun. Though the process revels in its rawness Marie's attention to detail and patience remains, evidenced by the glint of an eye, the strands of hair, the patterns on tongues. In collection, these portraits provide a glimpse of humanity every bit as informative and true as her medical illustrations. Marie’s work will be on display at 109 East Franklin Street (the old Ackland Art Museum Store) throughout the weekend. All are welcome to an opening reception on Friday, May 10 from 6:00-9:00. The artist herself will hold a talk and demonstration on Saturday, May 11 at 3:00.
