Vicki Henson creating in watercolor in the low vision class hosted each week at the gallery. Vicki was a longtime weaver and vision loss made her weaving difficult. Being able to explore new mediums and being able to create has helped her to cope with her changing visual abilities.

Artist Profile: Amy Dinsmore
Amy attributes her artistic influence to her grandmother, who gave her a scrap box that she and Amy and Amy’s mother kept full of “tidbits” treasures with which to create. This grandmother would supply her with “real” art materials and encouraged her free expression on these special summer visits of her childhood. After struggling for many years with physical and psychological issues, Amy renewed her former passion for making art from odds and ends, finding that it helps her to cope with her fragmented emotions. She has developed a style that combines collage technique with sculptural use of vintage, found objects.
