72 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, July 28 - Aug. 3, 2000 Gibbei' landscapes go on display at Peninsula Gallery; reception set Aug. 1 "Where the wind follows the sun" is the title of the new exhibi- tion at the Peninsula Galleryi lo- cated on the first floor of the Bea- con Motel, Savannah Road, Lewes Beach. The exhibition fea- tures the return of Tania Gibbs and will run from Aug. 1 through and Sept. 27. A reception to meet the artist will be held from 3 to 5 p.m., Aug. 1. Gibbs' previous show two years ago was a big hit, especially with those who were looking for large dramatic landscapes featuring empty horizons and big skies. The new works certainly contain some of those expansive skies but also include lush vegetation, even the occasional building and there are a few coastal scenes. There will also be more variety in the sizes of her canvasses this time, all the way from a handful of 5 x 7" up to two 48" x 60". What hasn't changed is her ability to exude light in all her paintings. With careful layering of her paints, she is able to create a scene that reflects very differerit times of the day when displayed in different lights. Although some of this work has a midwest Or western influence, the majority is from travels in New Jersey, Flori- da and the Caribbean. For the first time she gave up her winter in the mountains for the Warmer climes of the Gulf coast. The result is more in the way of warm and summery places, places that are peaceful, places that contain wa- ter, trees and vegetation. When comparing her work now with that of two years ago, she said, "I feel that my technical painting skills have improved greatly. I also think that this latest body of work directly reflects some very positive changes in my life. Painting warm and summery places is one thing, but painting them from a warm state of mind is another." Add to that fact that here is a young artist who, although very content with her style, is still prepare d to take risks with color and perspective in order to sur- prise the viewer from time to time. The Peninsula Gallery is open seven days a week. For more in- formation, call 645-0551.

The exhibit includes paintings and dollhouse constructions and-will run through Sept. 15. A reception to meet the artist will be held from 6-8 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 3. The public is invited to attend and the admission is free. Taggart studied painting at Virginia .Com- monwealth University and Sien- na, Italy. She has shown in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Virginia, Pennsylvania and Re- h0both Beach. By her own de- scription, her dollhouse-like con- structions range to nine feet tall and are perched atop rambling staircases, with interiors packed with furnishings, intricate lighting and oddities. "There is a degree of compulsion in the creation of the structures," Taggart said. "Each one goes through several transfor- mations before completion. It is a process that can take three to five years to unfold." Taggart de- scribes her paintings as not limit- ed by an affixed genre or style. "They range from landscapes to interiors to portraits. Each paint- ing is a fresh experience, a clean start. They juxtapose the ironic with the ordinary; they are an homage to solitude" Taggart re- cently exhibited at the Blue Moon and Rehoboth Art League. "Shadow Lane," an oil on board by Tania Gibbs is one of her paintings which will be hung at the Peninsula Gallery in Lewes through Sept. 27. FREE TICKET!
