The sculptures and masks pictured below were inspired by the two decades Beckie Kravetz spent working with the Los Angeles Opera as a principal makeup artist, resident mask maker and assistant wigmaster. The works have been exhibited at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion (Los Angeles Opera House), Metropolitan Opera, Seattle Opera, and in gallery shows in Santa Fe, NM, Tucson, AZ, Lenox, MA, and Oneonta, NY. Opera and classical music are a continuing source of inspiration, and the series is ongoing. Additional opera sculptures can be seen in the Sculpted Arias gallery. Commissions featuring specific singers or compositions are welcome.
