Gibson has been working on a series of still life paintings for the last eight years and approaches the still life like an intimate landscape. The paintings vary in subject from reflective spheres and glassware on boldly patterned drapes to fruit or a bouquet of flowers or a combination of all of the above. Recent work shows a more abstract approach to the still life.

“My aim is to construct vibrant compositions of color that rekindle in the viewer a sense of joy, peace and harmony and to create a luminous ‘shimmer’ in the viewer’s eye,” explained Gibson.

Having exhibited his work in Maine for 30 years, Gibson was a major participant at the Turner Center for the Arts and several juried Area Artist Exhibits at University of Southern Maine’s Lewiston-Auburn College.

Gibson will greet exhibit visitors at an opening reception from 5-7 p.m. Friday, June 20. The exhibit will continue through Aug. 15.

Gallery hours are Saturday 11 a.m.-2 p.m., Friday 5-8 p.m. and by appointment. Lyceum Gallery is at 49 Lisbon Street. For more information, visit, email [email protected], or call 207-576-4805.
