Ms Dibbs' canvases have a more piquant, even psychedelic flavor than those of her immediate visual cousin, the great Russell Chatham. Currently her sculptures round a corner into abstraction writ in audacious and arresting concepts that bring the busiest mind to a dead stop. Her working studio and gallery is located at 227 Midland Avenue #17A in Basalt and is open for drop-in visits or appointments. Call 970-948-4075 or visit instagram: taniadibbsart
