Pronghorn Resort
Gary Vincent October 6 thru November 9. Vincent’s Vishnu in Black and White illustrates his non-objective art that begins with choosing a palette, often black and ivory, and essentially making marks in black on the blank canvas. He finds that a pattern begins to emerge from the negative ivory shapes formed by the background. Continuing, the black marks define the pattern and the phenomenon of the optical shift between the light and dark values becomes integral in defining the design. As the painting continues, the hues shift in prominence and a final harmony arises that defines the composition. The artist observes that the creative process is highly intuitive, counter-balanced by the logical mind seeking to define the imagery, an interactive exchange between conscious thought and intuition. He also states that non-objective art is hence a constant exploration into the unknown, trusting the intuitive. Vincent concludes that “Art is from the Heart or it isn’t Art.” Billye Turner organizes the Pronghorn exhibits with info at 503-780-2828 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

She is self-taught but has expanded her education with workshops from Richard McKinley, Ilene Ginger–Stanfeld and others.

"I have an eclectic taste, so you will find many subjects in my portfolio; portraits, still life, landscapes, architecture and commissions. Although a disability with fibromyalgia limits participation at times, being able to create art is 'the best therapy I can imagine.'" You can see her art at many local shows in the area.
