Welcome to GIBBIN HOUSE!

When I first started this blog about the misadventures of a nascent author, I had only a small novel under my belt, titled Gibbin House. The building that bears the name is a fictitious postwar era safe-house, as many might have existed, and the London home of my motley crew of exiles. I could not anticipate then the degree to which I would join its ranks of writers and artists, but since publishing my book in 2011, I have had the greatest privilege of opening my own art gallery and of exploring my love of the written word through visual poetry and paper sculptures. Yet much like the girl who first started blogging two years ago, I suspect I don't know what I'm doing half the time. As such, Gibbin House remains a refuge for ramblings...and on occasion a haven for little triumphs.

"Metropolis" - ATELIER 1022 Presents Susana Perla-Mendoza

After a little hiatus, figuring out lives, loves, dramas, and artistic journeys, I'm back!  Just in time to announce the latest exhibit to open at our Wynwood gallery, ATELIER 1022, featuring one of the most talented photographers I know and a personal inspiration of mine, Susana Perla-Mendoza (please do not let the fact that we share a last name detract from my praise and esteem:)) 

October 13th at 7PM, she will be unveiling the latest series of unrban-inspired shots in her signature acid impressionism style.  The series is a testament to her first year as a New York-based artist and I can't wait what the next twelve months bring!  The exhibit opening will feature an artist meet-and-greet and DJ sounds by Hungarian import Krisz Vass, so please join us!

For now, here is a sample of her exquisitely etched punk rock color explosions, on view starting next Saturday.
