No charge for Four Arts Contemporaries or Four Arts members

with Lois Gibson

Presented by Four Arts Contemporaries 

Nearly killed in a violent attack at age 21, Lois Gibson channeled that trauma into a forensic art position serving the Houston Police Department and surrounding areas since 1981. She created the first forensic sketch shown on “America’s Most Wanted” and her drawings have appeared on other crime-fighting programs. Gibson is currently painting Alamo Defenders who perished in 1836, extrapolating their appearance from descendant photos. She is the the author of Forensic Art Essentials: A Manual for Law Enforcement Artists.
