Richard Hickam: Expressions of Color
Bivins Gallery is pleased to present Richard Hickam: Expressions of Color from September 16 through October 21, 2017. A celebrated painter for over forty years, Richard Hickam's vibrant works have been exhibited in museums across the United States. Transitioning from photorealistic paintings to large-scale abstracts to figurative abstractions, Hickam's style, technique, and influences are constantly evolving. Whether it be the quirky and convention-breaking features of his human subjects, or his vivid jewel-toned abstractions, Hickam continues to explore the bold manipulation of color and brushstroke as the main subjects of his paintings. The topic of numerous publications, Hickam's rich palette and accomplishments as a master of characterization have brought him recognition as a historically significant American painter. An opening reception will be held at Bivins Gallery on September 16, 2017 from 5 to 8 p.m.
