September 9 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
of Phil Garrett’s Solo Exhibition New Mexico Variations Paintings and Monotypes, 2018-2022
Friday, September 9
Join us as we celebrate the opening of Phil Garrett’s Solo Exhibition New Mexico Variations!
Phil Garrett’s work is informed by nature, a kind of mythical nature. The power of storms, the spiritual quality of the elements, the beauty, grace and ferocity of plants and animals…. Something greater than the artist, something he can’t comprehend. Painting and making monotypes are Garrett’s search for the mystery within the subject, within himself.
