Michael Mason: Homage to Louis H. Sullivan

Opening Reception Friday, June 20th 5 – 8 pm

Matthew O’Shea: Figures

John G. Garrett: Linked Lines
Over the past twenty-five years, John Garrett has worked simultaneously with two and
three-dimensional formats to create his textile forms with a variety of unusual and nontraditional materials. Visually unpredictable, apiece might be woven, wrapped, plaited,
riveted, painted, rusted, twined, nailed, stitched or tied. The materials used could be
nails, buttons, washers, corks, plastic flowers, painted aluminum, copper, cornhusks,

energetic and complex structure. He moves gracefully from constructing wall pieces to
baskets, breathing new life into discarded objects.
