Introducing something NEW to my collectors and friends! by Kristin Gibson

I invite you to visit my Etsy Shop, have a look around and become an admirer by clicking on the "Favorite Shop" button. If you do, email me your address at kristin@fineartandfabric.com and I’ll send you a surprise in the mail! This collection of original paintings combines my appreciation of our National Parks and natural places, and the increasing need to protect them. Each sale will benefit our National Parks. These are different from my still life and interior works on canvas that my galleries represent. These 8x10 "snapshots" are painted on birch panels cradled by solid wood, ready for hanging or perching on a mantle or shelf. Thanks for taking a look, I hope you see a favorite place you may have visited!

Hearts of Gold Gala by Kristin Gibson

BENEFITTING THE RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE OF DURHAM & WAKE

MARCH 10, 2017

Kristin Gibson is honored to be a part of Ronald McDonald House of Durham & Wake’s annual Hearts of Gold Gala. Kristin will be painting a canvas during the evening,   capturing a glimpse and spirit of the gala in her unique style. This painting will be part of the live auction. A special body of work will be on exhibit and available for sale, with 50% of all purchases directly benefiting the families of Ronald McDonald House of Durham & Wake. 

“Through my work as an artist I am most proud of the chances to give back, and supporting Ronald McDonald House of Durham is part of my heart. As a mother that stayed many nights at the House, my family experienced first hand the comfort, hope and solace that emanates from every warm welcome, baked cookie, soft pillow. The House is each amazing person within it, who greets you where you are, in darkest hours, and becomes a light. My family’s journey led to moving here for ongoing care with our team at Duke. With a piece of my heart left in both our former home and Ronald McDonald House, weekly volunteering for Pancake Day and Housewarming, still finds me receiving more light than I can possibly return.

The genre of still life is where I have found my voice, even more meaningful now, as truly still life is a reminder that life is ever changing, take joy in simple pleasures. The galleries who represent my work are equally dedicated to support community efforts and a spirit of giving. Thank you for your presence and your giving at the Hearts of Gold Gala for Ronald McDonald House of Durham & Wake.”

At The Table by Kristin Gibson

An invitational group exhibition opening Friday January 27 at Eno Gallery 

 

January 27 - March 25, 2017

EXHIBITING ARTISTS
Michael Brown, Kristin Gibson, Julyan Davis, Molly Cliff Hilts, Mike Hoyt, Tezh Modarressi and Marlise Newman

We come together in the winter months to share, to seek comfort and nourishment at the table. Scenes of bright fresh fruits and warm repasts draw a contrast with the gray days of winter. Families and friends come together to share. To seek nourishment both physically and emotionally. The rhetorical function of food is to represent the culture of a country. It can be used as a form of communication. The food we bring in warms our soul and the many culinary delights at this time of year are a feast for all our senses. We eat not just with our mouths but with our eyes. Each of the accomplished artists in this exhibition share their vision of the theme 'At The Table’.
