Meet artist Scott Gibson during the First Friday Art Walk at Mercer Island on Friday, June 7.

The Art Walk, an event featuring art at local galleries and businesses, is 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

A Seattle artist, Scott Gibson will be giving two art talks during the evening art walk at Clarke & Clarke Art + Artifacts (7605 SE 27th St. Suite 105). Time also will be available for conversation. Learn about the artist’s motivation, techniques and adventurous journey into becoming a full-time artist after a career in the tech industry. Gallery director Ginny Clarke says, “Gibson embraces the complex process of creating abstract surrealism in resin or encaustics. Pigments, paint, etching, layering, torching and scraping on his handcrafted wood panels. Embedded wire and other media further enhance and evolve his unique depth of his work.”

In addition to Gibson’s work, California artist Barbara Bouman Jay has work on display at the gallery. Jay’s paintings are created using her modified fresco technique called “A Secco.” She paints on dry plaster, using pigments mixed in water, dragging, layering and building a smooth surface in mostly geometric shapes, working predominantly in large scale pieces interspersed with multifunctional small four-piece series.

Video of the artist describing her technique will be available for viewing during Art Walk.
