Vicki Shuck and Gary Vincent

Please take a moment and stop by to see the work of artists Vicki Shuck and Gary Vincent currently on display at Partners In Care. In the glass cases you’ll find Vicki’s beadwork. A slow process, she says it can take an hour to stitch enough beads to cover the size of a quarter. The art form is very meditative for Vicki and whether making jewelry or bead embroidery, she finds that the bead work quiets her body, mind and spirit. The acrylic paintings on display in the large conference room are by Vicki’s husband and native Oregonian, Gary Vincent. They reflect the natural beauty of our state and were inspired by his annual trips to Steens Mountain. Gary says that fast drying, but fluid and flexible acrylic paint suits his need to work quickly and directly – very different from Vicki’s art form process!
