Nature Angel Adorns Gallery in the Woods' Holiday Window

Wow, is it really almost December?

My painting Nature Angel (a popular favorite) will be gracing Gallery in the Woods holiday window display this year.

Painted in 2005/06. She has a custom built archway frame, painted in gold and black and built by fellow artist James Whitbeck, a realist still life painter.

She was one of my first attempts a capturing “Glow” in my paintings. At the time, I traveled to lots of area churches to take photos of stained glass windows for research.

I have loved living with her powerful presence and beauty the last few years and there has always been lots of interest in her but its time that she found her forever home! That said, In the spirit of the holiday season, while she is at Gallery in the Woods, I am offering her at a special price of $2800. Well below her normal price range. At her size of 27” x 65”, she makes an exceptional statement piece.

Sales inquiries should go directly to Galley in the Woods at this time.

Reformer Extra Article by David Aquino

I have been so wonderfully gifted with outstanding press for my show at Gallery in the Woods with feature articles appearing in Artscope Magazine, The Rutland Herald, The Greenfield Recorder, and now the front page of The Reformer Extra among other mentions.

I want to sincerely thank these publications for recognizing and featuring my work as well as the journalists that took the time to meet and speak with me and for their expert writing talents.

Moments of Creation, by David Aquino was released today in Brattleboro, VT and surrounding areas.

The article starts " 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." to read more follow this link.

Alicia Hunsicker in Artscope Magazine

Alicia Hunsicker: Moments of Creation
by Clara Rose Thornton

During noiseless moments when the clatter of human endeavor and steel and spinning tires and rail yards and computer keys subsides, and my mind latches onto the occasion of a thoughtless space, I have, periodically — through no effort of my own — bumped against a peculiar ethereal buzz, one that seems to resonate and vibrate under the heavy cloak of the mundane world.

One could call this crystalline drip “God.” One could call it an alternate dimension existing alongside our own. Or, perhaps it is a subconscious awareness, made tangible, of the humming atomic fury binding every particle of our world, at once invisible and omnipresent.

Alicia Hunsicker simply calls it “art.”...........

Opening Night Fun @ Gallery in the Woods

I had a wonderful time at the opening for my show “Moments of Creation” now showing at Gallery in the Woods until Dec 31, 2011 (there is still lots of time to view the show if you couldn't make it out to the opening J ) It was jammed packed with patrons and the Moon Dogs rocked the night away! I was especially impressed with all the Leyden peeps in attendance! Thanks so much for all who were able to come out to see the show. I may decide to attend the next Gallery walk on Friday, Dec. 2nd, (weather permitting) for those of you who would like another chance to talk with me about the work. There may be a few more new pieces added to the collection at that point as well!

This is me at the opening with one of my many male admirers. LOL… notice the crutches….I am paying for it now but I stood the whole night! I will hopefully be walking without them in 4 to 6 weeks and I am really looking forward to being able to drive again.

Moments of Creation Opening Reception Tonight!

Well tonight's the night of my opening reception at Gallery in the Woods that premiers my 2011 painting series "Moments of Creation" 6:30 to 8:30 pm. I am looking forward to seeing friends and meeting new ones!

I had a pleasant surprise yesterday when I was contacted by journalist, Clara Rose Thornton telling me that a feature article that she wrote about me came out in the Rutland Herald, titled Spirit and form: Alicia Hunsicker's Moments of Creation. We ran up to Brattleboro last night to secure some copies and it was well worth the trip! Clara has a wonderful penetrating writing style that explores not only the paintings but the artist (or whoever she is writing about) as well. The Artscope Magazine interview will also be distributed today and I am looking forward to getting a copy.

To Quote Clara she says "Today's piece, on newsstands in the Rutland Herald. Here is a second tackling of the fascinating magical realist painter, Alicia Hunsicker Artist. As opposed to her ArtScope profile, wherein I attempt a colorful recreation of my subject's philosophy, here, I take many fun snapshots. Whereas in ArtScope, I attempt to paint a portrait, in the Herald I'm sketching whimsical outlines."

This is one of the paintings in the show tonight....Earth, Skin, Water, Blood, 32” x 38”, oil on canvas, 2011. Come see them in person! Its always better that way :-)

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.
