Gibbons AP Art Exhibit: The virtual experience
Rachelle Garbarine

 

Group of student-artists with Visual Arts Educator Rebecca Dason.

The AP Art Exhibit is a spring tradition at Gibbons. That's usually when the main lobby transforms into an art gallery, showcasing the creative work of our talented student-artists.

But this May, things changed due to COVID-19. Mindful of that, Gibbons Visual Arts Department invited guests to explore the exhibit virtually from the comfort and safety of their homes. 

"Families," said Rebecca Dason, visual arts educator, "were and still can celebrate all that these talented artists have accomplished together in this new way."

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.

The finished works range from paintings and photography to ceramics. Viewers can stroll through the different galleries by just a click of a mouse.

And that was a positive in these uncertain times. "Families," said Dason, "were and still can celebrate all that these talented artists have accomplished together in this new way."

Student artist Kayla Pham '20 agreed and added that she was excited about the opportunity to continue the art exhibit virtually! Pham's work on display in the exhibit is an ebony pencil drawing titled, "A Fan of Me."

Asked what she learned from being involved in the arts program at Gibbons, Kayla said: "I have learned more about patience, and that art takes time. I also have learned that it is okay to make mistakes or if something does not turn out all right."

In the fall, Pham will be attending NC State University, majoring in art and design.
