I have admired Tracy Hicks’ artwork for years so it was great fun to hear him speak on Saturday March 8 at the Valley House Gallery. He has a great installation in the middle of the gallery comprised of a fascinating assortment of small artworks. It was interesting to hear his thoughts and the process of the various artworks that make up the installation. He also talked about his art in general, life as an artist and his frogs. If you ever get a chance to hear Tracy talk, do not miss it!
Also showing, are Mark Messersmith’s paintings that incorporate carved pediments and mixed media dioramas.
Both exhibits are definitely worth checking out. And, of course, a stroll through the sculpture garden is always a beautiful blend of sculpture and nature.
