Signature Gallery

Signature Gallery of Michael Gibbons

Born in Portland in 1943 and a 5th generation Oregonian, Michael Gibbons has been actively painting the Oregon landscape for more than 50 years. Working in his signature, painterly style to create quiet and intimate views of the ever changing Northwest Landscape, Gibbons continues to produce art of high quality and genuine beauty. While he has successfully painted and exhibited extensively in Europe and the American Southwest, Gibbons states thet, "My most powerful work comes from here where I live." Gibbons has made his home in Toledo, Oregon since 1982, where the coastal landscape, the Yaquina Watershed, and in particular the Arnold Creek Estuary, continue to inspire his poetic and artistic vision of the Oregon landscape.
The Gallery at 140 SE Alder St in Toledo Oregon is open Wednesday through Sunday 11 am to 5 pm.
