Happy Halloween!

My favorite time of year where the veil between worlds is thinnest.

I am the proud momma of Frodo Baggins today J

The work drop off to Gallery in the Woods went well despite the 2 feet of snow that was dumped in our neighborhood. I actually delivered the work on Sat. instead of Sunday the scheduled drop off day and I am really glad I did. We were with out power from the storm for a little over 24 hours…..Which is actually not as long as we are used to going after a bad storm. There have been times where we have been with out power for over a week. I am happy this was not one of those times!

Four days and counting to my opening on Nov. 4th! I have been housebound with a broken leg for so long it seems and am a little nervous about being out and about never mind the center of attention. I was able to go up Main St. Brattleboro with my crutches on drop off day so it will probably be ok to get around for the opening night….I will just have to rest up.

I also can’t wait for the article to come out in Artscope Magazine…I tentatively heard that it comes out the same day as the opening (on the 4th).

In the studio I have started 2 new paintings and am working on ideas for my altered Book for the show at Hampden Gallery also coming right up!

From Mind to Matter

I just put the last brush stroke on this sweet little painting From Mind to Matter, 8" x 11", oil on board, 2011. I hope it will be dry for the work drop off on week away! All that is left to do is wait for varnish to dry and decide on prices.

On the 30th I will load the car and deliver it to Gallery in the Woods for my solo show which opens Nov., 4th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. I hope that I am able to walk a little better for the opening!

I was surprised to find out that a large group of Leyden-ites will be carpooling to the opening
:-) Its wonderful to be a part of such a supportive community!

I think its going to be a great turn out!

Studio visit with Clara Rose Thornton, Arts Journalist for Artscope Magazine

I was delighted to be contacted by Clara Rose Thornton, Arts Journalist, Cultural Critic and Editor, to interview me for an in-depth preview article for Artscope magazine about my upcoming show at Gallery in the Woods.

Amongst my paintings and a table of delicious munchies we immersed ourselves in interesting conversations about life, art, painting, and spirituality.

I enjoyed meeting this lovely, free spirited, talented writer who’s activities this weekend alone included, an Occupy Brattleboro rally, reviews of the Literary Festival also happening in Brattleboro and a studio visit / interview with me. A busy freelance writer for sure!

I am looking forward to reading her piece about my work in the Nov./Dec. issue of Artscope magazine. Artscope is a vibrant, dynamic magazine with arts news and reviews, available for pick up at over 700 museum, gallery, university, and commercial locations across New England!

This is my finished painting “Creation and Destruction”, 24”x 29”, oil on board, 2011 which will be in the Moments of Creation show at Gallery in the Woods. The Opening is Nov. 4th, 6:30 to 8:30pm.

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.
