Meet the Galt House Artist in Residence: Gibbs Rounsavall

The Galt House Hotel has just announced that the first Artist in the brand new AIR or Artist in Residence program for the Galt House Gallery and studio is Gibbs Rounsavall.  Gibbs is a Louisville native and the geometric abstract painter who was in the back corner of the studio.  He was selected by the AIR Selection Committee which was made up of 12 members of the Louisville art committee.

Event: Meet the Galt Artist in Residence – Gibbs Rounsavall
Date: First Friday
Time: 5pm – 7pm
Venue: Galt House Hotel – 3rd Floor

Gibbs will be at the Galt through February 2020 and will be working live from his studio throughout the month. The first installation will start this month and we think you will enjoy seeing it as it progresses.  He is very excited about starting and we look forward to welcoming him with open arms.  You will see him in various parts of the hotel as he sketches, paints, and photographs of different parts of the hotel. Stop in and meet the artist, view his works and enjoy a drink around the corner from the cafe at ALJ’s while you are there.
