Through her paintings, Catherine Gibbs has become attentive to the splendid drama of her everyday world; how light hangs on a tree or building, the movement or stillness of water passing under a bridge, the mystery of a tunnel or the grit of a train yard. Motion manifests itself in much of her subject matter, whether it’s arresting a moment of motion or even a feeling in time. She writes “I feel my body of work so far is a metaphor for my life’s journey.”
Catherine Gibbs is an established oil painter. She is involved in the thriving art scene in Easthampton, MA, where her studio is located.
