Showcasing the work of Lari Gibbons and Janie Stidham, Complementary features colorful new fine art prints and textile pieces made by two Texas-based artists. The exhibition title refers to the harmonious and reciprocal nature of shared explorations and themes in the artists’ practices. Working in parallel, both artists create playful and inventive compositions using geometric patterns, textured materials, and colorful hues. Additionally, both artists pursue sustainable practices in the production of their artwork. Together, the works presented in this exhibition are intended to provide an inviting, engaging forum for dialogue and reflection.

Lari Gibbons |

I am an artist and educator working primarily in the expanded field of printmaking. My interests focus on the interaction of materials, process, and visual language of print. My work serves as a bridge, connecting innovative approaches with traditional ones.

I use a combination of analogue and digital tools and processes to form blocks, plates, and other matrices that I print by hand on a fine art press. I often use laser cutters and computer-numerically-controlled (CNC) routers to make woodblocks and paper stencils, which are then inked and printed by hand. The repetitive process of forming and manipulating materials with traditional, skill-based processes and innovative, open-ended explorations drives my practice and sustains my work. I love modern and contemporary design, playfully exploring grid systems that allow me to rearrange, reconfigure, and re-use elements of my work in versatile, playful, and engaging ways.

Lari received an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where she studied under Karen Kunc, and a BA (Art History) from Grinnel College. She has taken numerous workshops – including lithography at Tamarind Institute under Rodney Hamon – and studied low-toxicity intaglio under Keith Howard and Elizabeth Dove. She is a professor at the University of North Texas, where she teaches printmaking and led the professional fine art collaborative print workshop PRINT Press for a decade. Her work is published in numerous books, and her work as an educator has been recognized by Adobe and Southern Graphics Council International.


Janie Stidham |

I am a designer and artist who uses re-purposed textiles, found objects, and a variety of other mixed media along with intuitive stitched lines. By using reclaimed textiles such as denim, I am challenged to explore patterns through the inconsistently saturated and faded colors, worn elements, and distressed materials. The imperfection of reclaimed materials keeps my work unique. I create in the late-night hours, weekends, and summers in my studio. My work explores color, pattern, line, and is sometimes enhanced with intuitive stitch. Many of my fabrics are re-claimed off cutting room floors, dyed ‘off’ pieces where a color is not quite right, or sample goods that never got used. I like to mix textures, such as linen and velvet.

Janie earned her bachelor’s degree at the University of Texas at Austin and interned at the Austin Ballet making costumes for the ballet company productions during her senior year. She earned her graduate degree at Texas Women’s University.

She has exhibited work at the Wichita Center for the Arts, Louisiana State University Museum of Art, Texas Tech University Art Museum, and Keep Contemporary Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico among many other galleries in the US.

She is now an Emeritus Professor in the College of Visual Arts + Design at the University of North Texas where she taught Fashion Design for over 25 years. Currently she is Visiting Professor at Baylor University along with working in her studio when time allows.
