Gail Gilbert, an acclaimed dancer and choreographer as well as an accomplished visual artist, first began exhibiting her art work in 1996 at Thread Waxing Space in New York City, in conjunction with a dance concert featuring her choreography. The influence of her training as dancer and performer is evident in her simple, direct, yet expressive lines. Both her paintings and theatrical works feature characters with bizarre and poignant agendas. Riddled with wit and intriguing metaphors, her work demonstrates a unique use of brilliant color that stimulates and challenges the imagination.
