Cross Gate Gallery presents an exhibition of new paintings by Kelly Brewer. Accompanying these paintings, we, in partnership with Sladmore Gallery of London, England, also present over twenty works by Nick Bibby, one of England's foremost animalier sculptors.


Cross Gate is pleased to announce and exhibition of new paintings by Lexington native Kelly Brewer & champion animal sculpture by Nick Bibby, one of England's preeminent sculptors.  Running September 15-25, this exhibition is an exciting opportunity to see works by two artists whose passion for animals is apparent in both of their oeuvres.  

Kelly Brewer's love of art formed her focus on the past, helping her to graduate from the University of North Carolina with an art history degree.  Brewer has become an acclaimed Lexington, Kentucky artist with a growing national reputation.  Master painters Joaquin Sorolla, John Singer Sargent, and Nicolai Fechin greatly influence her impressionistic approach.

Nick Bibby’s sculpture is imbued with such life and character. His affection for his chosen subjects shines out for all to see. It is truly rare to find an artist with such a talent for modelling. The ‘Bibby’ sculptural style, whilst very definitely figurative (to Nick’s eye, all his subjects are beautiful and he strives to recreate that beauty) he is quite unique in his approach. Fascinated by both form and detail he models with a fluidity and energy that few can equal, simultaneously and effortlessly combining that energy with a jewel-like attention to detail, resulting in sculptures that look as though they live and breathe. Bibby’s sculptures are both beautiful works of art and loving portraits, be they bird, animal, or human. With subjects ranging from small to monumental, Bibby’s work is owned and admired by an ever growing number of collectors, including royalty, politicians and business leaders, diplomats, famous authors, artists, actors and musicians

"Widely acknowledged as one of England's finest animalier sculptors, Nick has a deep appreciation and understanding of the habits, anatomy, and form of his subjects, allied with an acute observational ability.  He renders form, texture, movement, and the character of each subject with an astonishing attention to detail and a remarkable feel for the spirit of the animal.  The veins and muscles seem almost to move under the skin.  Bronze, a cold hard metal, is transformed into very real fur, flesh, and sinew by his incredible modelling skill." -Gerry Farrell, Sladmore Gallery


An artist reception will be held at Cross Gate on Tuesday, September 15 from 7-9 pm.
