Local artist Michael Hiscox of Dallas will convey the action and energy of human activity in a collection of works during an exhibition, titled “Spirited Energy,” in the Widmann Gallery at King’s College.
Hiscox will display a collection of works in a variety of media, ranging from watercolors to graphite, from Monday, Jan. 13, through Monday, Feb. 24, in the Widmann Gallery, Sheehy-Farmer Campus Center, located between North Franklin and North Main streets.
“Action and energy are infectious aspects of life that can be observed and felt through various occurrences, much of which stem from human activity,” Hiscox said. “My goal through my art is to convey this energy found in music, as well as running and other human movements, capturing the spirit, emotion, and craft of each outlet.”
Hiscox has earned awards in several competitions, including the Luzerne County Fair, Fine Arts Fiesta, and the Rossetti Memorial Art Exhibit. He earned a bachelor’s degree in illustration from the University of the Arts and a master's in Art Education from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. He has taught at the Noble School of Kutztown, the Philadelphia Arts in Education summer program, and Sue Hand's Imagery, where he learned the craft as a student.
Hiscox will discuss his craft during a Meet-the-Artist reception from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 17, in the Widmann Gallery. The exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery hours: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, as arranged. The Gallery is closed on national holidays and during scheduled breaks throughout the academic year.
