Sibyl Rubottom presents a visual memoir of her work from the last six decades, blending exploration with inspiration and comprising a variety of mediums: paintings, etchings, prints, artist books, collages, and soft sculpture. Central to her collection are artists books, her primary focus for over 25 years. She describes her work as “connecting folk traditions with a broad gamut of sensibilities, melding the boundaries between poetry and image making.” Sibyl’s books dive into concepts ranging from the celestial to the alphabetical. Her most enduring theme is water and its power to transport us across time and space—whether immersed in it or simply observing it. Sibyl Rubottom holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from Yale University.

The exhibition can be viewed in the AAC Gallery at the Athenaeum Art Center (1955 Julian Avenue, San Diego, CA 92113) during open hours, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and every second Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m., during the Barrio Art Crawl, and by appointment.
