Bonnie Tuckers 3-dimensional art on display at WLACC
As you may know, the West Linn Adult Community Center provides wall space for local artists to display their work. Currently, Bonnie Tuckers artwork graces our walls and admission is free to everyone Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Tucker was a career lawyer and law professor most recently at Arizona State University College of Law where she authored several books on disability law. She is uniquely qualified to write on this subject because shes been totally deaf since she was an infant. Her autobiography, The Feel of Silence, chronicles her life as a deaf person living among the hearing.
Tuckers art is textured and 3-dimensional. It invites touching (lightly). She marbles and hand paints a variety of papers, tears them and places them on the canvas along with the occasional found item. Acrylic paint is then added to create figures, people, objects and scenery. Tucker has become fascinated with Northwest scenery as you can tell from Haystack Rock.
Without benefit of sound, Tuckers world focuses totally on sight and feeling. Besides the works on display at the WLACC, you can find additional paintings on her website, bonnietuckerartwork.com.
