Gibson’s exhibition of quilts, garments, drums, prints, and video will be on display for the next two weeks. Gibson is a Choctaw-Cherokee artist known for his abstract painting, sculpture and prints. His use of language as a visual element permeates the installed works, examining race, sexuality, religion, and gender. The result is a rich, layered experience both poignant and celebratory.
