As an art history major, Teresa Gibens of Adamsville was naturally drawn to Corinth’s art gallery, where she serves as a volunteer. “I wanted to put time in at an art gallery,” she said. “I had heard of this place but I had never been in here. I want to learn from Sonny [Boatman] what he knows.” She likes to paint and carve art in the Pacific Northwest style — “what most people would call totem pole,” explained Gibens. An avid horse rider, she enjoys outdoor activities and attends Landmark Pentecostal Church in Stantonville. She has a daughter, Noel, named for Christmas.
