Atlantic Beach, NC

Sunday, July 2 from 12pm-8pm
Monday, July 3 from 10am-4pm

Presales available online or call 252-353-7000

Each July 4th holiday City Art Gallery brings the gallery in Greenville to the Coral Bay Club in Atlantic Beach. Gallerist Torrey Stroud, and her dedicated staff alongside her family transform the beach club into a fantastic two day event for collectors and visitors alike. With a backdrop view of the sand and sea, countless easels and displays go up featuring each of City Art’s regionally and nationally acclaimed artists. The offerings of paintings, ceramics and sculptures, many created specifically for this show, are greeted with anticipation each year by the streams of enthusiastic friends and clients that enjoy their time at the beach, as much as this unique opportunity to view and purchase works of art. Many arriving early to be the first to see their favorite artists, or arranging presales ahead of their visit.

Atlantic Beach holds many memories for me. Weekends and summers visiting my in laws first as ECU students, then all the milestones in between, to bringing the kids to the beach, Ft. Macon, Jungle Rapids, the NC Aquarium, Beaufort and more with grandma and grandpa. Oftentimes having an El’s shrimp burger on the way home. During those years we also planned our visits so I could set up my easel at the Coral Bay show painting demos throughout the day, enjoying most meeting the families that became familiar faces each year. I have come to discover that each generation of one particular family have my paintings in their home, that is truly special to me. 

So in the spirit of family fun and summer memories, my offerings to this years Coral Bay show include my take on some favorite spots. Thank you for having a look at El’s Drive-In, Big Oak Drive-In and Beaufort Grocery Co. Be sure to click above on the image to see all three. Let me know which shrimp burger is your favorite! Happy 4th of July!

Hearts of Gold Gala by Kristin Gibson


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

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’.

100 S. Churton St, Hillsborough, NC 27278
