Event Description

Journeys through 40 Years of Art
Opening Reception – Friday, May 18, 2012, 5 to 8 p.m.
Exhibition – May 18 to July 1, 2012
Gallery Talk – Wednesday, June 13, 2012, 7 p.m.

Opening on Friday, May 18, the next exhibition in the Main Gallery at Jacoby Arts Center will take you on a journey through 40 years of Thomas D. Gipe’s career as an artist and art educator with a unique blend of sculpture pieces, drawings, and prints representative of the artist’s many interests and talents.
The exhibit runs through July 1 and the Center will host an opening reception on Friday, May 18 from 5 to 8 p.m. as well as a gallery talk at 7 p.m. on June 13. The gallery talk allows for an opportunity to interact with the artist and learn more about their artistic career and technique. All exhibitions and their accompanying opening receptions and gallery talks are free and open to the public; a cash beverage bar will be available at the reception.
As a child Gipe enjoyed drawing cars, airplanes, animals, and creating three-dimensional objects.  His dream of making a living as an artist came true in his grandfather’s blacksmith shop.  His art represents the images and surroundings he grew up in.  Many of Gipe’s pieces exert the talent, which he has developed as a draftsman, blacksmith, and printmaker.  Symbolic elements give the viewer a glimpse of Gipe’s childhood, career as a teacher, and lifelong journey as an artist.
Jacoby Arts Center is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., late on Thursdays until 8 p.m., and closed on Sundays and Mondays. For more information, visit or call 618-462-5222.
