A favorite project this summer has been painting and adding colorful thoughts to a new addition for the Ronald McDonald House Family Room in Duke Children's Hospital. A local Eagle Scout named Michael designed and built a beautiful coffee cart that will bring comfort and warm wishes in the form of hot coffee to the families in pediatric and neo-natal intensive care. I had the pleasure to meet this wonderfully industrious high school student and his parents when they delivered the cart to the House in Durham. The next step was painting, and I was truly honored when asked to lend my brushwork, to be able to give back a little more to this amazing place.
Most of all I wanted to complement the outstanding job Michael had done and project a cheerful uplifting presence. Ahead of my thought process I had the opportunity to see with Chris Ruggeri, RMH Duke Family Room manager, the pediatric units and the Family Room where the cart would be rolled and shared room to room. I know how it feels to stay in the House and be in other areas of Duke Hospital for the care of my daughter, but walking through these ICU units with tiny miracles and warriors behind each door, certainly has stayed with me and wove it's way into what emerged for the cart.
I added windows and words and shapes that would become my canvas. A perspective of looking out at the sky and clouds and birds from within. Walking through Duke Gardens, hearing the birds, seeing blooms emerge, and thinking about clouds and circumstances changing moment to moment, were sources of Hope, and renewed energy that sustained me during my family's time at RMHD. I hope this rolling cart built and painted with love, will bring a bit of heartfelt cheer and support and smiles to all who may need a little of each, in that moment it comes by. Thank you for letting me share. Kristin

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!

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.”

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’.
