Featured Artist of the Month: Dan Gibson

April – May 2024

Dan Gibson is a native of Scott County, Tennessee. He has been painting for over fifty years and he still has the passion to paint every day. He has made his home in Morristown, TN. for the last twenty-five years. Before moving to Morristown he lived in Knoxville, TN. and was very active in the local art scene. He was a member of the CHROMA Art Association where he exhibited his art in the Knoxville area including monthly showings at the Bijou Theatre and in the Market Square area of downtown. One of his proudest achievements was having his art in an exhibit at the Knoxville Museum of Art and his paintings showcased on a local TV station.

Mr. Gibson is a very active member of the Morristown Art Association and Rose Center Council for the Arts. Needless to say he loves the ARTS!!! He is a favorite art instructor and has held classes at Rose Center, Morristown Senior Citizen Center, Hale Springs Inn and in private homes. He loves to donate his art to help support local charities. He enjoys sharing his time and art helping summer art programs for children. He truly enjoys giving back to the community. Since the 1990’s Gibson’s artwork has been shown in several locations in Tennessee. His work has been accepted into many juried art shows and won numerous awards. A challenge Gibson faces as an artist is the fact he is colorblind. Fellow artists have said it gives his work individuality.

I like for people to relate to my work in their own personal way.  I hope the viewer will be drawn into my paintings and have their own interpretation of what they see and feel. I want my art o evoke different emotions. I paint every day and enjoy the serenity it gives back to me. I have a saying which is especially true for me. “Art is my Life and Life is my Art.”
