Ginny Gibson, Featured Artist February 2017
"Slow Down, Look Closer"
Reception Thursday Feb. 16th, 4 - 8 pm during the Corvallis Arts Walk
Since her childhood in the California Mojave Desert, Ginny loved working with her hands, building with tools, drawing, and painting. She took various art classes in high school and then received a master’s degree in teaching with an art minor. Ginny taught for 33 years in Southern California.
As and adult, Ginny has taken numerous art classes and after moving to Corvallis 6 years ago she found wonderful ceramics teachers at the Benton Center and began working with clay exclusively. She loves the creative process that enables her to infuse her work with depth and meaning, be serious yet whimsical, and capture the best of the human spirit and womanhood.
Ginny makes women because they bear hardships and carry burdens; they love unconditionally; they cheer when a friend gets an award; their hearts break when a friend dies; they know that a hug and a kiss can soothe someone’s pain. The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning - they are joy, hope, and love.
