Downstairs Gallery

“Curious Characters” Pianista Paintings and Prints from the Veneto Collection

Holliston resident and artist Michael Frassinelli has created a mythological society/culture. In two past exhibits at the library he presented several aspects of the Pianista culture: a variety of objects used in everyday life, ceremonies and weapons. The focus for thisexhibit will be the paintings & prints of figures wearing traditional Pianista masks and ceremonial regalia, along with notes from ‘experts’. A fascinating exhibit from a culture that exists only in the imagination. A comprehensive and incredibly enthralling catalogue of the Pianista culture will be available for purchase. An exhibit NOT to be missed.
