JOHN GARRETT

October 23rd through December 12th

Opening Reception 

Friday, October 23rd from 5-8 p.m.

(ST. LOUIS) – Duane Reed Gallery is pleased to present the sculptural works of John Garrett. This exhibition opens Friday, October 23rd, with a reception that evening from 5 - 8 pm, and will be on display through December 12th. 

John Garrett was raised in southern New Mexico, influenced by Native American arts and crafts. His intrigue with the tools, systems and materials involved in weaving and other textile constructions were nurtured and developed through courses with Neda Al-Hilali and Marion Stewart. Garrett has been working with the application of textile technologies and imagery to various materials for the past thirty-five years. He has exhibited nationally and internationally in hundreds of exhibitions. Currently a full time studio artist in Las Cruces, New Mexico, he taught for many years at colleges and universities in California, including Scripps College and UCLA. He now teaches workshops nationwide on creativity and the use of textile methods to create sculpture. The National Endowment for the Arts awarded Mr. Garrett fellowships in 1983 and 1995. In 2010, he was elected a Fellow of the American Craft Council College of Fellows in recognition of his outstanding artistic achievement and leadership in the field. Garrett’s work is an engrossing exploration in tactile intricacies through repetition of form, while simultaneously providing the viewer with a myriad of textures and colors to explore.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10 - 5pm.
