Chain Letter @ Sampson Projects, Boston, MA

"Chain Letter" is a global group show wherein 10 artists have been invited to participate. Those 10 then invite 10 artists that they admire. Those 10 invite 10 more and so on. This cycle continues for 30 days.

The result is an exponentially massive, artist-curated group show based
entirely on admiration. We hope every admired artist on the planet will be
included in "Chain Letter" this summer.

I will be participating in this show at the Boston venue and have invited 10 artists that I admire to show with me...This show will be massive! I can't imagine being on the administrative side of it! I am really interested to see how it all plays out it has a little bit of a mysterious factor.

A Novel Idea

I have been invited to create a piece for A Novel Idea, an altered book exhibition, showing at Hampden Gallery, UMass, Amherst. The show will run through Dec. 11, 2011 - Feb. 19, 2012.

I am pretty excited by the ideas I am exploring for the piece I will create. I will post the opening or closing reception dates when they are available.

A Novel Idea

Electronic devices like the Nook and the Kindle have already captured huge swatches of the reading public’s loyalty. Quick. Before it’s too late, this group of painters, sculptors, writers, film-makers, printers, and all-round lovers of the printed page, boldly bend, fold, and mutilate traditional books until all that remains are discrete art objects. These one of a kind altered works stand witness to the rapid evolution of the book as we know it.

Worcester Windows

Friday I drove out to Worcester with a fellow artist to have lunch with the gallery directors at Worcester State College and to meet a WSC art student and curator who wanted to meet me and talk about painting. We had a wonderful lunch and then headed into Worcester Center where I was able to see my paintings hanging in the windows of the Hanover Theatre. The Worcester Windows Community Gallery program provides a wonderful opportunity for regional artists to showcase their work and gain exposure by transforming storefront windows into exhibition space. This community art gallery not only beautifies the city, but also encourages a greater appreciation and awareness of the arts. I was invited to participate in the the next Worcester Windows exhibition, an invitational show that will run August 1, through December 1, 2011.
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.
