Welcome to GIBBIN HOUSE!

When I first started this blog about the misadventures of a nascent author, I had only a small novel under my belt, titled Gibbin House. The building that bears the name is a fictitious postwar era safe-house, as many might have existed, and the London home of my motley crew of exiles. I could not anticipate then the degree to which I would join its ranks of writers and artists, but since publishing my book in 2011, I have had the greatest privilege of opening my own art gallery and of exploring my love of the written word through visual poetry and paper sculptures. Yet much like the girl who first started blogging two years ago, I suspect I don't know what I'm doing half the time. As such, Gibbin House remains a refuge for ramblings...and on occasion a haven for little triumphs.

Carola Perla's "Spelling Bee" Featured in the Zero Edition of ELSE Art Journal

It's been almost a year in the works, but the inaugural annual issue of ELSE Art Journal -“Trans-what?” and “Everything Else” is finally here!
Moreover it features a 2-page spread on my 2012 "Spelling Bee" visual poem and cut paper installation, which itself is currently on view in the "Lit / Lite" Solo Exhibit at The Foundry Art Centre in St. Charles, Missouri, until November 7th, 2014.
Thank you so much to the staff for inclusion in this impressive annual academic art journal.  I'm thrilled join this list of international artists and honored to have been deemed relevant and worthy by my peers.
