(1889-1992), TX

Born in Ft. Bend County, Texas, Gibbs worked as a sharecropper most of his adult life. He began making art after his wife died, in 1972. With watercolors, crayons, pencil, and oil pastels, Gibbs executed his images on found materials, such as grocery bags and old letters. His work has been exhibited in many museum shows, including Passionate Visions of the American South, and Spirited Journeys.
