Link & Pin Gallery presents "Me and Mom" opening reception
Link & Pin Gallery presents "Me and Mom" exhibition, featuring never-exhibited drawings and watercolors by Melanie Hickerson, along some artwork by Geraldine Clark Hickerson, Melanie's mom.
Melanie Hickerson has been pursuing a career in art since 1976. She had her first one person exhibit in a bookstore in Austin, Texas. Melanie graduated with an MFA In 1985. In 1986, she left Austin to pursue an art career in NYC. In the vibrant art scene of NYC, Hickerson had an opportunity to develop as an artist. She had some exhibits in various galleries but eventually joined a gallery called Ceres, the New York Feminist Art Institute. Hickerson had a broad range of experiences, from working as an artist for the City of New York, to a variety of teaching positions, grants, commissions, and exhibits. Hickerson returned to the Central Texas area in April 1999, to care for her mother.
Meanwhile, Geraldine Clark Hickerson was the youngest of five girls. Hickerson was fearless in her travels. She was a progressive thinker, interested in saving the earth, recycling, composting, and yoga before many people had heard of those things. She loved the stars and could identify most of them and then could tell you about their myths. She was always a unique individual.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display on June 4.
