Kim Gibbs- Friday October 4, 5pm-9pm
Join us for refreshments by Friends of The Blue Ridge Parkway and meet/greet with Kim Gibbs and view the colorful and emotional paintings!
As a child, Kim was inspired by her aunt’s three-dimensional art and the wonders of exploring her family’s art store. While raising her own children, she studied watercolor which opened her eyes to seeing how color reacts to light. From watercolor Kim moved on to working in pastels and acrylics, finally finding oil, her current medium.
Primarily self-taught, Ms. Gibbs has studied with many world class teachers and participated in numerous workshops from Scottsdale to Maine. Her instructors have included Albert Handel, Timothy Horn and Millie Gosch, Camille Prezwodek, and Andy Braitman, among others. She is a graduate of the University of Georgia Journalism School.
Additionally she is a member of Oil Painters of America, Women Painters of the Southeast, Artists of N.W. Atlanta, and the Dilworth Artisan Station. Her Large landscapes can be found in private as well as corporate collections. She is represented by several galleries in the southeast.
