Gallery Michael Gibbons
A lifelong Oregonian, Michael Gibbons has expressed his vision through painting and art from a very young age. Born in Portland, he left the city at age 25 for Oregon’s coasts, where he was inspired to pursue painting full-time. Throughout his life, Michael has received national recognition for his regionalist paintings.
A Lifetime and Career of Art
Michael Gibbons has always held a passion for art. He began creating art as soon as he could hold a crayon. In elementary school, he began painting with oils, and, before the end of his teenage years, his work earned him invitations to join well-known art societies. Yet, he didn’t begin working as a full-time painter until his mid-20s. Gibbons worked as a designer of specialty automotive accessories for a small manufacturing firm before relocating to Oregon’s coast, where art became his labor of love. Finally, in 1986, he launched his art gallery in Newport, OR, in the coastal community of Toledo.
Michael’s gallery is more than a place to showcase art—it’s also his home. Gibbon says, “my post powerful work comes from here where I live.” His focus is evident in all of the work he produces and he’s become well-known for depicting scenes around the area as a regionalist painter. And, in addition to creating fresh works of art in dedication to his native region, Michael also welcomes other local artists in Newport, OR. Renting gallery space to aspiring painters like himself, Gibbons encourages artists to create what they’re passionate about and share it with the world.
