VAIL – The Vail International Gallery will present an exhibition of new paintings by artist Ron Hicks from Tuesday through Jan. 1. An artist’s reception will be held at the gallery on Thursday from 4-8 p.m. Hicks is noted for his ability to convey true emotion and character in his subjects.

“The colors in Ron Hicks art are unique and unmistakable,” gallery president Marc LeVarn said. “If you see his art once you know it immediately thereafter.” Hicks is considered a great young talent by those who follow the contemporary art scene. Like many successful artists, Hicks career began as a graphic illustrator and later blossomed into a fine art career. Classes at the Art Students League of Denver led him toward fine art. Today he is an instructor for advanced oil painters at the league.

“It will be very exciting to see Ron’s newest work,” LeVarn said. “It doesn’t seem possible, but his art just keeps getting better.”For information on the show, call the gallery at 476-2525. The Vail International Gallery is located at 100 E. Meadow Drive No. 17 – directly across from the Sonnenalp Hotel in Vail Village.
