    Garrison Art Center

    Garrison Art Center is proud to present a solo exhibition opening September 21.
    Method for Proceeding: Sculpture installation by visiting artist, Henry Klimowicz

    Please join us for the opening reception on Saturday
    Sept. 21, 5-7pm. 

    The exhibition will be in the Riverside Galleries from September
    21-November 10, 2019.

    Method for Proceeding

    Press release

    Method for Proceeding is a large sculpture installation which occupies the windows, walls and floor of the Riverside Galleries at Garrison Art Center, transforming the two galleries into spaces of spiritual stillness. The exhibition illustrates Henry Klimowicz’s devotional, longtime commitment to creating exquisite nature-inspired sculptures using the most ordinary of materials—cardboard. Throughout the exhibition, one encounters forms that harken towards something familiar and recognizable while stopping short of literal interpretations. In Klimowicz’s hands, humble cardboard is cut, bent, folded, shaped and glued as it passes from “trash to beauty.”
