Kim Shuckhart Gunns is an award winning member of Pacific Gallery Artists, South Hill Artists, Peninsula Art League and past Rainer Art League member residing in Tacoma, Wa. U.S.A. Her work has been shown regionally and internationally at the Yangzhou Art Museum of China. In Oct 2011 she was selected for the Landfillart.org Hubcap Project, founded by Ken Marquis, in Pa. sending a lighted(5ft x 4ft) 1957 Dodge Lancer Hubcap, mixed media project there. (It can be viewed at Landfillart.org click gallery of metal canvases, then alphabetical to name.) During this time she was awarded first place at both the Proctor Art Show, and the Peninsula Art Leagues National Show, juror Richard Mc Kinley. In Feb good fortune continued with a Best of Show at the Premier Gallery, then the artwork selected for the TJH Show had another real treat, a second showing for a month at the Tacoma Art Museum. How Fun!
In her contemporary work, Kim compels the viewer to interact by stimulating thought and interpretation using the impressionist and abstract style. For her watercolor is the media of choice but in her mixed media and collage’ works other mediums are used for textures and effects, sometimes applying her original poetry to the art. Her world of art resonates on bold color and creative imagination making one of a kind artwork.
The educational study of art, artists, and collecting art has been a lifetime passion. She is thankful for her mentors, Fred Oldfield, Tis Huberth, Stella Canfield, Teresa Saia, Gail Janes and Betty Mears. She still pursues continued art education and workshops most recently having completed the Robert Burridge Masters’ Program for the Postmodern Painter.
Her work has been purchased by area corporations, shown and sold in many galleries and accepted in over 100 juried fine art shows. Successfully heading an art auction and serving as a board member for PGA art group for 12 yrs., Kim has devoted time and art work to clubs and area charities.
What does she say about her art? ” My art is not meant to be real it’s only imagined, “The joy is in the creation, giving a visual experience for the eyes to absorb, the mind to ponder, the soul to linger and your thoughts to escape- forever- making a shared connection- with you the viewer!”
