Hi Joe, I am glad I ran into you on this forum. I searched "Gigi Gallant" on Google and there you were. I would like to know what you know about Gigi. It sounds like she is deceased. I met Gigi in 1977 in Big Bear, Calif. She painted a Christ Head painting at my request. I wanted to print lithograph copies of work by local talent. I didn't know what I wanted but left it to Gigi to create. She said she had never done a Christ head and didn't know if she was worthy.
In a short time Gigi called me and said she had finished painting and wanted me to look at it and see if I had any criticism. It was wonderful, beautiful. How could any body criticise that. It was about 18"x24" acrylic pastells. The background was filled with subtle imagery from the Biblical narrative. The painting won a Best of Show award and she let me hang the painting in my print shop. Gigi gave me permission to use the image as I saw fit. I have printed it as book cover and 11x17 lithograph. She was a wonderful lady and very talented. If you know more, please let me know. Rr
