About 40 people attended the May 23 reception and lecture on artist Lari Gibbons' recent work, "Traces," which was hosted by Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville. The night began at 6 p.m. as UNF students, aspiring artists, art enthusiasts and Jacksonville locals filed in to browse "Traces" and enjoy complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres. At 7 p.m., Gibbons began her lecture, discussing "Traces," its relation to her interest in how humans leave their traces on the environment, her other artwork and a little bit about her personal life. Gibbons' work was beautiful and inspiring as much art is but had a depth I hadn't anticipated: environmental awareness and an extremely hands-on, scientific approach to her art and research.
