Jeffrey Gibson’s exhibition, To Feel Myself Beloved on the Earth, at Art Omi closes on January 2, 2022.

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.
