ArtHouse3 is a 17 year-old small business committed to supporting, exhibiting and placing regional art, and I, Katherine (Kathy) Gibson, am the sole proprietor. When at all possible, I bring in other creatives for specific client jobs and, I often work with regional artistic folks on their respective projects. Above right was my first scheduled artist talk, as Gallery Director for HCC, with my good friend and talented artist, George Anderton. On left, I'm happily in the middle of Tempus Projects board members including Tracy Midulla, TP Founder (my right), as they received a 2017 Tampa Bay Business Committee for the Arts (TBBCA) Impact Award. I'll say!
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 also includes creating pop-up galleries (like in rustic Florida lake house above), working as a project manager for corporate organizations, and serving as a guest curator as often as possible.
Art Advising | As a regional art advisor, project manager and former gallery director, I delight in designing art exhibits and in collaborating with clients to select work or create work 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.
