The Mr. and Mrs. F.P. Gibbs Collection
June 7 -August 25, 2012

Former Center for Western Studies Art Committee chair Frank Gibbs, and Jan Gibbs enjoyed collecting American Illustration, Western and Regional Art. In recognition and tribute to their work with the art community, the Center Western Studies is exhibiting 195 works from their collection during the summer of 2012. These noted Sioux Falls Residents are pleased to share their collection with their fellow South Dakotans. This exhibition is guest curated by noted South Dakota artist Nancyjane M. Huehl.

Curators Note:
Frank and Jan Gibbs began actively collecting works of art almost fifty years ago, with a focus on western illustration. Frank had a keen sense for American History, often referencing his personal library in preparing papers for presentations he would give at the Center for Western Studies. In their time of collecting Frank and Jan formed close ties with the artists and the galleries that they purchased from- friendships that still last today.
