Arthouse3 | Katherine Gibson
ArtHouse3 is a 17 year-old small business committed to supporting, exhibiting and placing regional art. Two recent exhibits are above, one in Tampa and the other in St. Pete (click Exhibits tab). Below center was my first artist panel when served as Gallery Director, with my good friend and talented artist, George Anderton. On left, I'm happily in the midst of Tempus Projects board members - including (l to r) Bob Ballard, Tracy Midulla TP Founder, Sarah Howard, Desmond Clark - as they received a well deserved 2017 Tampa Bay Business Committee for the Arts (TBBCA) Impact Award. On right, with a treasured group of artists and curators at The Morean Arts Center where I worked as guest curator and creator of Orange State (click image for names).
A recent article by Sara W. Hopkins, for Northeast Journal, does a nice job of explaining what I do, and I'm glad to have it to reference my work as most of my attempts at explanation draw furrowed brow.

Beginnings | ArtHouse3 began as a recurring open house gallery (Art House) in my then Tampa home, and over the last 17 years has evolved into a roving art consulting business. Clients range from corporate offices looking to build art collections to first-time buyers seeking a specific piece. Project work includes creating exhibits in unlikely places (e.g. rustic Florida lake house above), working as a project manager for client endeavors, and serving as a guest curator as often as possible.
Art Advising | As a regional art advisor, I delight in collaborating with clients to find, select and install art for their respective environments. Motivated to keep creative talent in the area, I concentrate on showing and placing the work of local and regional Florida artists. Occasionally, I offer pieces for sale from my own regional collection - inquire if interested.
