Gallery Internationale in Flat Rock is pleased to announce that they will be hosting “Art from the Heart, Poems from the Soul,” an exhibit of art and poetry by Tryon artist Vicki Van Vynckt.
The show is celebrating Van Vynckt’s 30 years of painting in oils and writing poetry. It is being dedicated to her grandfather, who also was an artist and poet. Included in the exhibit will be 30-40 of Van Vynckt’s landscapes and skyscapes with poems along with a self portrait and landscape painting by her grandfather.
Van Vynckt earned a degree in fine art from The University of Southern Indiana and later took classes through The Atelier art school in Minneapolis. There she learned classical drawing techniques and plein-air painting.
Her paintings have been displayed in more than 60 exhibitions, many of them solo. She has exhibited in galleries throughout the country and her work hangs in private collections across the United States.
