September Meeting & Program – Saturday, September 19, 2020
West Harris Branch is so fortunate to have fiber artist Cindy Hickok as a member. I first became aware of her work at the Spring Branch ISD Altharetta Yeargin Art Museum. Her work was so impressive that I revisit it often in my mind. Cindy, who is our Program Chair, was hesitant about scheduling herself as a program. I persevered. Cindy is an experienced presenter and an amazing talent. I am so pleased that she agreed to present our September program on Zoom. Save September 19 at 10 AM for her presentation and the WHC meeting. Look for an email Blast closer to the date to give you information on how to attend.
As with most of us, Cindy Hickok began the Corona Lockdown by cleaning closets and organizing records. When it became apparent, however, that we were in for a long haul she knew she would want more to show for this time at home. Her desire for a meaningful project ended immediately with a request from a Boston gallery looking for gallery-quality masks for their patrons. After five years of retirement from the art world, Cindy found herself facing one idea after another in the design of masks. The masks in turn have led to further requests for her art and she is now working full-time in her studio. We will see where her creativity and her humor have led her as she develops new ideas that bring subtle smiles to her viewers.
