Artist Michael Gibson, showcases his art at the Blue Moon Inn

June 12th, 2012 by Trina Packard

Michael Gibson WorksI have developed a wonderful relationship with local artist, Michael Gibson, who has used the inn as a gallery for a small part of his collection. Jokingly, we refer to Blue Moon as “The Gibson Gallery” since the introduction of his works to the inn. Each piece was chosen to complement the room in which it is displayed. They exhibit the range of techniques and styles Michael has developed over the 40+ years of his career.

All of the art is available for purchase, and a full catalogue is in development for this page. Check back as the art page grows…

From the Artist

“I have always had a keen interest in drawing and art, and more importantly, the ‘state of being’ that focused observations bring about.” I’ve spent most of my studies with works of the past, and as an artist I can help bridge past to present”

Artist Bio:

Raised in Texas, Michael studied at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and majored in art with a minor in psychology at the University of Houston. He worked as a graphic designer for Faroy Inc. in Houston for many years but left the corporate side of art behind when he moved to Bainbridge Island. He taught art history, illustration and photography at Seattle Art Institute for 16 years before retiring to Ashland. Michael now lives in Ashland Oregon where he is an active Artist.

Gibson works in all mediums of art including sculpture, drawing, oil painting, collage and photography. Intrigued by the techniques of the old masters, he has been painting in oils on a gesso base and concentrating on portraiture and tromp-l’oiel. On a lighter side, Michael’s cartoon figures of French Roast coffee beans dancing the can-can decorate the Bainbridge Bakery. In addition to Blue Moon Bed and Breakfast, Michael’s work is currently at the Howard Hanson Gallery and The Rogue Gallery and Art Center.
