UK Artist/Professor Exhibits Sculpture, Monotypes Nationally
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 22, 2013) – The artwork of Garry Bibbs, associate professor at the University of Kentucky School of Art and Visual Studies, will be on display for art patrons in Indiana and New England to peruse as part of two exhibitions.
In December, Bibbs unveiled "On a Worldly Roll," a 22-foot stainless steel sculpture commissioned by the University of Indianapolis. The sculpture has been coupled with "Formal/Informal Conversations: Sculpture and Monoprints," a solo exhibition of Bibbs' work at the Christel Dehaan Fine Arts Center, which runs through March 15. The exhibition includes a lecture by Bibbs sponsored by Talbot Street Art Fair Inc.
Next month, Bibbs’ work will be included in a national juried exhibition of monotype and monoprint works through the Monotype Guild of New England. The exhibition will be on display through April 6, at the Barrington Center for the Arts at Gordon College, located in Wenham, Mass.
Bibbs' exhibition history includes showings presented through the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., the Ruschman Art Gallery in Indianapolis, the Hertz Gallery in Louisville, and the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati.
The Kentucky sculptor is also an active member of the Pew Civic Entrepreneur Initiative, a coalition group in Lexington whose goal is to confront and solve issues relevant to the community on race relations and leadership.
The UK School of Art and Visual Studies, at the UK College of Fine Arts, is an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design and offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in the fields of art studio, art history and visual studies, and art education.
