Virtual Lecture Series: The Art of Topiary with Mike Gibson

Topiary unlocks our sense of touch and sight in unique ways. Join award-winning artist Mike Gibson as he explores the therapeutic aspects of topiary and shares his process for beautifying locations of any type, creating more inviting spaces for our senses and decreasing negativity within an area. Mike Gibson is a self-taught property artist, topiarist, and entrepreneur, who has spent over 20 years beautifying residential, commercial, and public spaces. Inspired by hardworking Black artists like his father, Michael T. Gibson, and Topiary Artists Pearl Fryar and Jake Hobson, Gibson began honing his craft at the early age of seven. Since 2015 Gibson has created well over 600 topiary designs for properties nationwide through Gibson Works Property Art (GWPA) LLC. In 2021 Gibson was the Topiary-Artist-in-Residence at Pearl Fryar Topiary Garden in Bishopville, SC, where he helped to restore the legendary garden. Among many other awards and achievements, he was a featured contestant on the HGTV produced reality tv competition show "Clipped" featuring Martha Stewart as head judge in 2021.
