The Carlyle Gibbs collection offers visitors a breathtaking view of an artistic ecosystem. Each individual creation stands strong with a story all its’ own. Yet, in the details, metallic shimmers seem to inspire and reflect each other, as if the whole collection is connected. Shimmering metals find ways to illuminate corresponding paintings with a beautiful color infused mystery just as gemstones appear to borrow vibrant colors from the canvas.
Take a walk over to Butterfield Garage this Friday night to experience the Carlyle Gibbs' illuminating world forget metallics and gemstone palettes.
