Art Ball Prize winner and current CentralTrak artist-in-residence Jeff Gibbons opens a solo exhibition entitled Let the Drip From the Ceiling Become an 8 Foot Hole in the Roof in CentralTrak’s gallery. The exhibition’s name is derived from Gibbons’ experience renovating a derelict home in Detroit, Michigan. The gallery installation includes several repurposed television sets with looping video and unexpectedly humble sculptural works. In this exhibition, Jeff Gibbons’ artworks unite to create a surprisingly meditative and melancholy atmosphere.


Jeff Gibbons received his MFA in Intermedia at the University of Texas at Arlington. He has most recently received the Dallas Museum of Art: Art Ball Prize. His work was exhibited at the Dallas Art Fair and included in the silent auction at the DMA’s sold-out fundraiser, the Art Ball. He has notably started artist collaborative Apophenia Underground with fellow artist Justin Ginsberg, who have received a great deal of attention for their curatorial projects in vacant retail spaces in Deep Ellum. Gibbons has had solo exhibitions at Oliver Francis Gallery, The McKinney Ave Contemporary, and 500x and has participated in several group exhibitions through various venues, including the Texas Biennial, the Dallas Biennial (online), El Centro College, and Conduit Gallery, Dallas, TX.\
