Toledo artist Michael Gibbons appears in the December issue of Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine, an excerpt from the article:
Art lovers eager to experience another side of oregon should visit the town of Toledo, just a 10 minute drive inland from the Pacific coast. Home to 3,700 people, Toledo is surrounded by thickly forested hills overlooking Yaquina River and Bay. There the landscape painter Michael Gibbons (b.1943) and his wife, Judy, have been instrumental in fostering the Toledo Arts District, which centers on the studios of several artists and on the Yaquina River Museum of Art.
Founded by the Gibbons’ in 2002 in an 1887 building that once served as a sunday school, the museum collects and exhibits artists who have worked in the Yaquina watershed region. Today it holds a growing collection that includes 80 paintings and drawings by Michael Gibbons, as well as works by such other artists as Emil Carlsen, william Russell Flint, and Loran Speck. Gibbons’s studio nearby occupies a former Methodist church, and his signature Gallery was the Episcopalian church’s vicarage.
