‘The Beautiful Round and Round’ exhibit at HACC’s Gettysburg Campus

Exhibit opens Oct. 21; artist reception Oct. 22

GETTYSBURG, Pa. – ‘The Beautiful Round and Round,’ artwork by Gettysburg resident, Cinda Gibbon, will be on exhibit in the main art hallway of the Gettysburg Campus of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, from Tuesday, Oct. 21 through Monday, Dec. 16, 2013. A reception for the artist will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 5 p.m.

Gibbon worked as a high school teacher, a librarian at Gettysburg College and as the library director at HACC’s Gettysburg Campus and Shippensburg University in Shippensburg, Pa. In 2008, Gibbon was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and, in 2010, she retired from Shippensburg University.

“Drawing is physically rehabilitating and emotionally therapeutic,” said Gibbon. “Producing art makes me feel vital. Art and writing give me an occupation, a point of conversation and connection with others.”

“Structurally, I like to work with circles and find them literally in bowls, fans and windshield wipers,” said Gibbon. “But I also find circles described in empty places, in nature.”
