JAMES GIBSON

James Gibson is well known as one of the earliest Florida Highwaymen artists, literally selling paintings from the trunk of his car in the 1950’s. He began taking painting lessons at age 18, took a detour as a college student studying biology at Tennessee State University, and then returned to his first choice of becoming a working artist. He has since dedicated his work to the Florida landscape; painting the scenes he grew up with -- mangrove swamps and palms, bogs and sunsets -- all of the things that make Florida’s landscape unique. Gibson is now considered an accomplished artist and he helped to establish an art genre known as Florida’s Indian River School. Two of his paintings were recently featured in Steven Spielberg's movie Catch Me if You Can. He was featured in the 2003 Art for Living Calendar and was one of the Florida artists selected to do an ornament for the White House Christmas Tree in 2002.
