Summary

Ron Geibel grew up in Butler, Pennsylvania. In 2013, he received his MFA from the University of Montana. Geibel has been a long-term artist resident at the Clay Art Center in Port Chester, NY as well as a short-term resident at the Red Lodge Clay Center and The Chautauqua Institution’s School of Art. Ceramics Monthly Magazine recognized Geibel as a 2015 emerging artist. Currently, he is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Art at Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX. His work explores the intersections of public vs. private. By creating objects that reference the private parts of people’s lives, the work confronts matters concerning, sexuality, gender and identity. Geibel brings these issues out of the dark by inciting the voyeuristic tendencies of his audience.
