Pavilion Spotlight: Framed

Posted: Updated:
Her fingertips are re-creating Toulouse-Lautrec's famous "Woman's Head" painting.

"You have to study the details. The effect that you want is the overall effect but in order to get that overall effect you have to look at the little details. If you look at the painting, the ears are not the natural skin tone of ears, so you literally have to pay attention to what the colors are and where they are," said makeup artist Shannon Wright.

Wright says putting makeup on people mimics painting on a canvas. On Saturday, she'll work on four subjects, hoping to bring art to life.

"We just kind of searched for people who looked a little bit like the paintings," said Suzanne Ledeboer, the Washington Pavilion's Visual Arts Center's projects coordinator.

Saturday's Framed event will also feature dancers from Main Stage Dance. They'll perform a 15 minute story of a dance hall Lautrec painted.

"Every hour on the hour starts the tour through the individual frames. The half hour marks starts the large frame which is our dance group," said Ledeboer.

For an artist that wasn't afraid to show Paris' Bohemian lifestyle, Wright believes Framed is a must see.

"I think this project will really bring to light the idea that this was a real human being painting real people. It makes it very personal," said Wright.

Framed is free to the public and all ages are encouraged to attend.
