Join Luci and 12 of her scariest characters this Friday, February 25th, from 6-9pm at Studio Mobtown, 3500 Parkdale Avenue, in Woodberry 21211, for wine, cheese and goosebumps!

The show features twelve large drawings in red pencil on white paper, portraits of women—friends, acquaintances, strangers—displaying emotions that are not considered stereotypically feminine: anger, disgust, snobbery.

“Women in our culture are socialized and socialize themselves to hide ‘ugly’ or ‘uncomfortable’ emotions. We all want to be pleasant people, of course. But it means that what we consider attractive is only one side of ourselves,” Morreale says. “In our current culture, and even more so in our past, we have taken pains to hide more powerful emotions. In my explorations about what I think is attractive in women, I realized that unique, strong women are infinitely more interesting to me, and they are the ones I want to draw.

“I want to tap in to what it is that is so exciting and so scary at the same time about these women,” Morreale continues, “and maybe touch on how fear and joy can be inter-related.”

The show opens February 25, 6 p.m.—9 p.m. and can be viewed afterward by appointment only. To schedule a visit, contact Lucinda at luci@ladderbackdesign.com or 410-258-6201.
