Starting at the end of the Post-Impressionist period, abstract art has bedeviled and amazed us for over 100 years. It has found many expressions on every continent. The Gibby is bringing together an exclusively abstract show. It features 4 artists, two painters and two photographers. Elisabeth Bard is a photographer who specializes in color, macro, and montages. Her emphasis in her abstract works is on structure, strong color, and intersecting lines. Carole Huber is an oil painter who works on both canvas and pure silk. Her imagery, though influenced by observations of nature, emphasizes color and line. Jack Knight bases his paintings on various presentations of a “free form” image that looks similar to marble, some on a square or rectangular format and others are of a geometric shaped canvas. Linnea Tober uses digital photograph to create abstract images from nature which she twirls, twists, and tweaks. Each has found his or her own way of using a personal visual language of form, color and line to create art. They will come together for an informal panel at the end of the reception on opening night to offer their thoughts on what directs their art and to invite your questions. Please join us for wine, hors d’oeuvres, sweets and, we hope, an interesting conversation.
