I lay one color down next to the other and something happens that stimulates my sense of mystery and discovery, creating a painting that works on its own terms.” His work can currently be seen in the competative “Art in ME”exhibit at the Boothbay Region Art Foundation in Boothbay and in the juried show “Artist's Choice” at the River Arts Gallery in Damariscotta. Robert's work may also be viewed in his studio at 1746 Harpswell Islands Road on Orrs Island by chance or appointment, and on the website www.robertgibsonart.com
