OLDS— The weekend of November 5-6 is going to be pretty busy for Patsy Hickok.
Residents of Mountain View County have been very involved at Friendfest, a dinner and dance event in Olds on November 5th, thanking the community for supporting the Service Club.
Also, that day and the day after, she will be the Featured Artist at Olds Art Club’s Fall Show and Sale.
The event will be held at the Evergreen Center on Saturday, November 5th from 11am to 5pm and Sunday, November 6th from noon to 4pm.
During an interview with AlbertaHickok admitted that Friendfest could drag him out a bit that Sunday if he wasn’t careful.
“I can’t be too late,” she said with a short laugh.
Hickok was trained at the Alberta College of Art & Design. She also taught at a camp in Maine.
Hickok said he was humbled to be named the club’s featured artist this time around.
“I’ve always wanted to show my artwork, so it feels great. But this year, I had a lot to show, so I’m excited to go out and show my work.” ”
Hickok makes paintings (oil and acrylic), does silverwork, and works with stained glass.
“I will be exhibiting my stained glass work, which I sell at shows and sales, and of course my paintings,” she said.
As for her paintings, Hickok has been painting a lot of landscapes lately.
“I’m mainly interested in landscapes now,” Hickok said.
“There was a place where I took pictures of me walking my dog out in the fields, and I saw what I wanted to photograph.”
She said, “Or what I see because I like storm clouds and wanted to capture the moment.
“I love the beautiful scenery of Alberta. Big skies, beautiful clouds, colors of sky and clouds. I just wanted to capture the moment I saw it.”
Hickok was heavily influenced by the work of the Canadian Group of Seven.
And she created one painting that seems to be heavily influenced by Vincent van Gogh. His swirling sky and clouds.
It depicts a woman looking up. Carp and flowers dance in the swirling clouds.
“That was actually painted for my daughter,” Hickok said. “We’ve been to Paris and she loved carp.
“I wanted to paint a picture that she longs for. Look up at the sky. But that might be a little surreal, right? Things aren’t always what you perceive.
“I want to do more, I want to think outside the box”
