The DeLand Fall Festival is proud to recognize annually an artist whose work is featured on our event T-shirts and posters. Our Featured Artist for the 2019 festival is Carly Gibran. Be sure to stop by her booth to view her beautiful works of fine art.
Carly Gibran graduated from Stetson University in 2003. She taught art in the public-school system, co-owned a small gallery in DeLand, and has worked with several local art organizations. Carly is a previous recipient of the Florida Artist Enhancement Grant and the Volusia County Artist Professional Development Grant. She has been a full-time studio artist since 2015. Carly works with porcelain, making functional and sculptural ceramics that are inspired by the natural world. She lives in DeLand, Florida with her husband and their two sons.
