Gratitude

Tumbleweed Particle Spin
5x7 mixed media on cradle board.
Alicia Hunsicker, 2013

On Facebook I was nominated to do the 7 days of gratitude challenge.

What a great reminder that I have a lot to be thankful for. They say when you focus on the positive you get more positive! So I will share this blessing here...

This week I was blessed with a sale at Gallery in the Woods. I love this little painting and am so pleased it has found a new home. :-)  A sincere thank you to the patron who bought it. May it bring you happiness and many blessings too.

Artist Reception at Gallery in the Woods

Partial installation photo of Nexus.
Paintings by Alicia Hunsicker, August 2014

Thank you to all who came out to the artist reception. It was jammed packed full of friends and new faces! I was overwhelmed with the positive response to the new work.

A special thank you to all who joined me afterward for a drink at fireworks to celebrate. They have the best fruity drinks.
I unfortunately forgot to take a photo at the reception so this one will have to do.
It is a partial installation shot of about half the show.

If you missed the reception and still want to see the show its up through the end of August. I feel that it is my best work yet and I would love to share it with you.

Sometimes its actually better to go after the reception where it can be crowded to truly appreciate the paintings. Three other stellar shows downstairs with Klaus Postler, Tim Mahurin, and Gil Perry.

James Heflin writes about Nexus in Preview Magazine Massachusetts




In the artwork of Alicia Hunsicker, the imagery of science is transformed into something vibrant and lively.  Cool-hued spheres trace playful patterns and tendrils swirl in scenes that could be underwater life, astronomical time-lapse, or subatomic restlessness. Hunsicker says her works in the show Nexus address the intersection of science and spirituality. Her paintings are part of Gallery In the Woods’ summer offerings, which also include collage-centered works by Klaus Postler. Through Sept.  —James Heflin

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.
