Three artists exhibit together for the month of July with an opening reception on Friday, July 1st from 5 - 8 PM.
Garner, Alicia Hunsicker, and Karen Loomis are close friends and
creative collaborators who have worked in tandem for decades. They draw
inspiration from the natural world to create distinctive visionary reflections of the macro and micro in oil, acrylic, alcohol ink and other media.
Deborah Garner's artistic process is about letting go. Her spontaneous
interaction with the materials is an organic flow which she allows to
happen rather than following a preconceived end result. Her work
expresses a sense of freedom and loose gestures that appear in motion.
Alicia Hunsicker's art fuses her interests in science, consciousness,
and spirituality. She sees repeating patterns in nature as the framework
of a divine connective language and often references particles in her
paintings to express something common from the minuscule world deep
within atoms to the vastness of the universe.
Karen Loomis creates work that reveres the beauty in broken or damaged
objects by emphasizing the transformation that occurs in repair. Her
sculptural pieces express love expended on mending and value in what is
imperfect. Her paintings in this body of work investigate cellular,
dendritic, and crystalline patterns that occur in nature.
Come meet the artists during Gallery Walk on Friday, July 1st from 5 - 8 PM at Gallery in the Woods, 145 Main Street. For more information go to galleryinthewoods.com or call (802) 257-4777.
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. David Aquino, Brattleboro Reformer
