Art and science mix for painter and scholar Victor A. Yanchick, dean of the VCU School of Pharmacy.
His paintings will be on display during the fall semester through Nov. 23, at Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences, 509 N. 12th St.
Watercolor is the pharmacy educator's medium of choice, and work on display includes landscapes, pastoral scenes, still lifes and themes from the American Southwest. He started painting 11 years ago. A self-described lifelong learner, he said, "I wanted to do something totally different from what I do on a day-to-day basis. Painting is a way of expressing one's self."
Yanchick, who has served as dean of the School of Pharmacy since 1996, has been a leader on the national level as president of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. He studied pharmacy at the University of Iowa and received his Ph.D. in pharmacy from Purdue University. His wide-ranging interests in the pharmacy profession have included medication use in the elderly and inter-professional education. He has guided several programs through a time of rapid change with a personal commitment to improve patient care outcomes through advances and innovation in pharmacy education.
Yanchick donates his watercolors to help raise funds for student scholarships and philanthropic organizations.
