Juror Bio: Katherine (Kathy) Gibson was born in Miami, grew up in Lake Wales, and currently lives in St. Petersburg. After working in government, corporate, and formal office environments, she took a professional hiatus and backed into showing regional artwork in her Tampa home. This evolved into Gibson’s art consulting business, Arthouse3. From 2011 through spring of 2014, she served as Gallery Director for the Dale Mabry campus of Hillsborough Community College (HCC) and rebranded it Gallery221@HCC, where she doubled the exhibition space, established a permanent art collection, and organized 30+ exhibits. Since 2014, Gibson has created and curated pop-up galleries in Polk and Hillsborough counties, and has guest curated exhibits at the Lake Wales Art Center, HCC Ybor Art Gallery, Morean Art Center and Florida CraftArt Gallery in St. Petersburg.
