Snow Storm Outside My Studio

The power has returned after 2 days & nights...... but the beautiful Birch stand that I look out upon from my studio window will never be the same.
I hope that they recover enough so that we don't have to cut them down.

Onward to Storm # 2!

Hampden Gallery's Collabrative Drawing Project & Exhibition

I first met artist Kathleen Cammarata a year or so ago at a visit to her X/O Studio in Lowell, MA

I really admired her drawing techniques which were rich and layered. I was excited to hear that she would be leading a Collaborative Drawing Project in conjunction with her solo show at Hampden Gallery on the UMass Campus and
am very pleased to be invited to participate in this project & exhibition.
Led by Kathleen Cammarata With Participating Artists;
Alicia Hunsicker
Karen Loomis
Mihai Zgondoiu
Kerry O'Grady
Irene Ishomirsky

When two or more artists work on the same drawing a new kind of imagery emerges.
The artists give up ownership of the end product,thereby breaking new ground and discovering
new aesthetic choices.

The collaborating artists include a recent BFA graduate and a third year candidate in the MFA program of the UMASS Art Department, as well as 2 professional artists from Massachusetts and
a visiting artist from Transylvania, Romania who is also a PhD candidate in Bucharest.

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 3 from 5:30 - 7 PM

When: Saturday, April 3 - Wednesday, April 28 -

The Leyden Artist Group @ 10 Years : Article in the Greenfield Recorder

Drawn together to share their art in Leyden
By ANITA PHILLIPS Recorder Staff
link to article on the Recorder site

LEYDEN -- A group of talented and tenacious artists has been meeting once a month for the past decade to share and display members' art -- and there seems to be no end in sight for the group.

Peggy Brown, current coordinator of the group, as well as a potter, photographer and writer, said Alicia Hunsicker, another Leyden artist, founded the group more than 10 years ago. Hunsicker is still a member.

''It's an informal group,'' said Brown. "We get together once a month, sometimes to share our art, sometimes to create art and sometimes just to talk about it.'' Brown said the whole idea of the group was to get creative people together to inspire and support each other.

The group consists of potters, painters, fiber artists, photographers, writers, illustrators and more.

Brown said membership fluctuates between 15 and 25 members.

''Sometimes two people will show up for a meeting and sometimes everyone will,'' said Brown.

The group gets together for trips to art museums, art walks, potluck dinners and to just sit in a garden and create.

Altered Target Project & Other Studio News

I just signed up to do the Altered Target Project
@ University Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I am very excited about this!

Info as follows:

The Altered Target Project is a juried exhibition where all the artists begin with identical authentic paper rifle targets, and alter them as they wish. The finished work must remain, in some way, a useable target.

We will provide each entrant with three official law enforcement silhouette targets (model B-27M, size 23 x 35 in.) to work from. Artists may paint, draw, print on, collage, cut, sew, project video, shoot at, or make any other creative alteration to the target.
Since the targets are not archival, framing is not essential, binder clips and pins will accommodate most installations. However, heavier finished work or sculptural work will require the usual support considerations.

It has been over fifty years since Jasper Johns presented his first target paintings. His rendition of the iconic circle target greatly influenced the Pop artists that followed. The human silhouette target was chosen for our exhibition because it has a versatile design with a bold central figure and ample margins. The B-27M should prove to be the perfect image to revisit the target in the 21st century.

There has already been overwhelming interest in the Altered Target Project on a local and national level....There are only 500 targets and they are getting claimed fast...

Exhibition plans include a large show with a national call for artists in the summer.
Please send me an email at if you are interested in the project.


My current focus is working as a photographer/graphic designer with the Belly dance community.......I have also been taking belly dance classes with Attar (Whitney Suter) and have been enjoying the physicality. The next show I will be shooting at is the Valentine's Day show on the 14th @ the Northampton Center for the Arts.

Upcoming/ possible projects include:

~A Chicago art leasing company would like to try my paintings...I am exploring this option!

~A featured artist profile on

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
