Opening Reception: Friday, March 16, 5-7pm
“Unseen and Unheard: Accidental Musings” evolves from Gebhart’s background in science and art history. Her organic compositions resonate with sumptuous textures and images, meandering line formations and color transparencies. Each work on paper is a unique, one-of-a-kind viscosity monotype—a printmaking technique that lends itself to the creation of luminous effects, chaos, and turbulence. Over the last decade, the topography of the Southwest influenced her horizons, undulating lines and explosions of color.
Educated first in the health professions, Gebhart then went on to learn art history and printmaking. After attending Immaculate Heart College, she earned a BA in Art History at the California State University in Los Angeles, followed by art classes in Santa Barbara and workshops in traditional etching techniques at Crown Point Press in San Francisco. She makes annual visits to Santa Fe to develop her skills in printmaking and is a Docent at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.
