DESCRIPTION

Chiaroscuro Contemporary Art is pleased to present a special open house with mixed media sculptor John Garrett on May 26 from 2-4pm.   Please join us to meet the artist and enjoy light refreshments and coffee. Garrett's current show, New Work, continues through June 9.

Using discarded, recycled, non-precious materials, John Garrett's new sculptures consist of large-scale works hanging straight down from the ceiling.  Garrett calls them "Chain Columns".  His Chain Columns employ hundreds of densely hung individual elements, such as keys, bead strings, or razor blades, looped together one on top of the other.
