A frequent visiter to LG! Kristina expressed interest in painting portraits of the Live Girls! As the process began she was also inspired by the work of Kathleen Houlahan's portraits currently on exhibit at MOHAI which were the subject for a commissioned play being written by Live Girls! Associate Artistic Director Zoe Fitzgerald. Kathleen Houlahan painted portraits at the Ruth School for "Wayward" Girls in the 20s and 30s as a gift to the young residents. Kristina's portrait sessions began to influence Zoe's Play "Girls" as the writing project had influenced her. Her portraits capture the playfulness and spirit of Live Girls! naughty company as well as quiet off stage moments that our audiences rarely get a glimpse of. The pieces range from to light and playful illustrations of the group together to striking individual portraits. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to see Kristina's images of the "Wayward" Live Girls!
