Most Innovative

"Transfusion" was one of two paintings awarded a monetary art prize for "Most Innovative" in the ScienceOnline2012, Sci-Art show which took place last week at North Carolina State University and Duke University.

Although its rare that I enter juried shows these days, I am really interested in exploring the emerging field of Science and Art. I was very happy to be chosen to be included in the show and for the new connections I have made. The show received sponsorship from Rob Dunn ( thank you Rob!) from Your Wild Life Lab. and 6 monetary prizes were announced in 3 categories;

Most Innovative
Best able to convey complex ideas
Best science art having to do with daily life

This is the first show that I have participated in that awarded prizes and I was pleasantly surprised to have been awarded one! A big thank you to Karyn Traphagen and Glendon Mellow for organizing , curating and co-judging the show and a big Congratulations to the other artists who won awards.

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.
