JACKSON, Wyo. \u2014 Jackson Hole artist Pamela Gibson admits she might be stuck between the \u2018now\u2019 and the \u2018next\u2019 of her career. Gibson\u2019s personal transitional stage translates into her latest project\u2014Liminal Spaces\u2014a tactile collection of works that invite the viewer to walk with the artist through every phase of her creative chrysalis. The 22 paintings that make up the body of work speak to this time of transformation, anguish, and upheaval, as well as the moments of hope and gratitude we find and share during challenging times. \u201cEncaustic painting allows me to embed objects and materials that other painting mediums would not,\u201d Gibson says. \u201cLook closely at these paintings and you will find burned dress patterns, feathers and tiny brass pins on which I imagine infinite numbers of angels dancing.\u201d Look closer. You\u2019ll notice bits of scrapped memories\u2014old letters, photos, and other memorabilia\u2014put through a paper shredder. Gibson\u2019s Liminal Spaces opens July 16 at Shari Brownfield Fine Art\u2019s downtown project space. The gallery will host a limited capacity, RSVP-only opening reception on July 16 from 4 \u2013 8 p.m. Guests are asked to book a preferred 20-minute time slot to evenly distribute attendance and experience the work in a safe and intimate manner. The artist will be in attendance. Masks are required both inside the exhibition space as well as on the front deck. The exhibition will continue through August 3. The artist and Shari Brownfield are partnering to donate 10% of sales to the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole's Emergency Response Fund, which supports the community's most vulnerable populations during COVID-19 through grants to local nonprofits.
