Pat Gibson  Planet Waters

Gallery ONE & TWO

November 14 to December 23, 2023


The St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre is pleased to present “Planet Waters”, an exhibition of artwork by Pat Gibson.


“I have been fascinated by the movement and mystery of water on and under its surface since living on the shores of Lake Erie.”

The drawings and paintings in this exhibition were created in response to disaster stories of tsunamis, hurricanes, floods, changing shorelines, oil spills and our sick planet waters. The work is also informed by ongoing research of estuaries, tides, currents, water levels, pollution and the water column.

Please join us for the artist reception on
