"Sitting Still" by NC artist Kristin Gibson presented by Durham Art Guild at Room 100 Gallery @ Golden Belt Arts. Exhibition dates January 6-February 5, 2018, Durham , NC Public artist reception Friday January 19, 6-9 pm.
Still life, happening upon and composing elements of daily life has been where I have found my painting voice. Flowers found on a walk, vegetables fresh picked at the market, a chair with books, a corner of a room. Chairs in particular made their way into my work in response to seasons of significant loss and change. Three years ago another life change brought my family to Durham, NC. Many nights spent at the Ronald McDonald House of Durham with daily walks among the nature in Duke Gardens became solace. This collection of works speaks to gratefulness, hope, reflection and coming out the other side. Thank you for having a look, sharing a moment “Sitting Still”.
A portion of painting sales from this show will be given to Ronald McDonald House of Durham & Wake. Room 100 Gallery is located in Building 3 at Golden Belt Arts , 807 Main Street, Durham. Open daily to visitors 10 am -7 pm and Sunday 12-6 pm. Purchase or interest inquiries please contact Durham Art Guild firstname.lastname@example.org or call 919-560-2713.
