“Inspired in Cornwall” – June Hicks Exhibition – June 2015

June 3, 2015 to June 30, 2015thewebdev

The Alverton Gallery’s exhibited artist for June 2015 was June Hicks who featured in the Cornishman newspaper 11 June 2015 with this article:
For his first featured artist, Roger Driscoll, the new owner of the Alverton Gallery, Penzance, has chosen one of Penwith’s most celebrated printmakers June Hicks.
It was at Penzance School of Art that she came under the influence of its then principal and master printmaker E Bouverie Hoyton and other such talented artists as John Tunnard and Sue Lewington. A founder member of the Penwith Printmakers, as well as exhibiting at various venues throughout Cornwall, she also set up her own workshop and small gallery near Land’s End.
One who has long been renowned for her prints and paintings, works in which she applies the lessons she applied under the tutelage of E Bouverie-Hoyton and his staff, in particular the need for fine observation and the importance of careful and precise technique, her detailed compositions are a delight. Whatever her subject matter, whether the interior of a garden shed or a canal in Venice, or closer at home an impression of perhaps Newlyn or Lamorna, she has the ability to capture and convey a sense of both the place itself and the moment when the print or painting was conceived.
Classical landscape printmaking at its best, well worth a visit, admission is free and works of June can be seen until the end of the month.
