Gallery in the Woods
145 Main Street, Brattleboro
Triad, three artists exhibit together at Gallery in the Woods on Main Street in Brattleboro for the month of July with an opening reception on Friday, July 1st from 5 – 8 PM. Deborah 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.
