G. Gibson Gallery is pleased to announce our upcoming exhibit with new work by Cable Griffith and Maija Fiebig. This exhibits mark our second solo exhibit with Cable Griffith, and our fourth solo exhibit with Maija Fiebig.
New paintings and drawings by Cable Griffith explore the fact and fiction of reported “sightings”. Mysterious lights pulse, parade and hover over landscapes of dense forests, meandering waterfalls and silhouetted tree lines. This new body of work is a continuation of Griffith’s style of painting - referencing early video game aesthetic and digital mark-making. Cable will be in the gallery for the opening reception on First Thursday, December 3rd, and present an Artist Talk on Saturday, December 12th at 1pm.
New work by Maija Fiebig will inhabit the back section of the gallery. Continually influenced by the natural world, this group of paintings and embroidered textiles pay homage to the seemingly magical world of flora and fauna. Carefully detailed paintings shimmer and pop with colors both subtle and bright. Unique textile works are pieced together meticulously with needle, thread, sequins and glass beads, giving the plant life represented a jewel-like presence. Maija will be in the gallery for two First Thursday Receptions: December 3rd and January 7th, 6-8pm.
