The Bry Art Gallery in the Division of Art at the University of Louisiana at Monroe is currently showing a One-Person Exhibition of Paintings by Kit Gilbert of Ruston.
Gilbert's large nonobjective canvases are augmented by metal found-object sculptural materials garnered from a Lincoln Parish barn. Her exhibition consists of 20 such painting/sculpture combinations, plus two freestanding metal sculptures.
Known to many as a successful businesswoman, Gilbert also pursues a second career as a practicing and exhibiting studio artist. Her work can be seen on occasion in Monroe and Ruston, and throughout the mid-South region in various exhibitions of the Eye Twenty Group.
This exhibition will be on view through Oct. 18. The gallery is open from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Mondays – Thursdays, and from 8 a.m. – noon Fridays when the university is in session.
The artist will be honored with a reception at Bry on Friday, Sept. 21, beginning at 6 p.m. She will also give a "closing" gallery talk to students at 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18.
