About me

Pat Gibson is an artist, art educator and former Curator of Exhibitions at the Ingersoll Creative Arts Centre. She is co-founder/ co-curator of Oxford County Art Project: Art in Public Spaces. Gibson has exhibited her mixed media work in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout Ontario. Her work is in public and private collections throughout Canada and the USA.

"I have a strong feeling that just beyond our senses there is something magical about life, something very subtle yet powerful. My work has become a search for that mysterious part of myself and my world."
