Michael Gibbons, a renowned oil painter residing in the coastal landscape of the Pacific Northwest, has been accepted into Reflections in Water, an art show exhibited at Saint Mary’s College Museum of Art in Moraga, California. His painting, entitled “Whalen Island Refuge” will be on display at the college from June 5th through August 28th.[/caption]
Michael Gibbons has often stated that his home state of Oregon is his favorite place to paint because of the breathtaking beauty of our central coast and Coast Range Mountains. “Whalen Island Refuge”, a 10”x12” oil painting, came to be painted after the artist walked 3 miles around the tiny island which shares with the Clay Meyers Wildlife Refuge and State camping location near Pacific City. Gibbons turned to the island backside where tidal inlets of water from the Pacific Ocean meander and where wildlife thrives. “Whalen Island Refuge” will be located at the Saint Mary’s College Museum of Art this summer for their upcoming exhibition.
Saint Mary’s College Museum of Art, previously the Hearst Art Gallery, is a liberal arts institution with a rich history well known throughout the San Francisco area and surrounding region. Reflections in Water, an upcoming juried art show at the college will be shown to the public from June 5th through August 28th in Moraga, just 23 miles East of San Francisco. A multi-media exhibition, Reflections in Water is all about the beauty and variety in water all around us.
