REFLECT// Margo Sawyer

From May 6- October 19, Sawyer’s sculpture will fill our gallery floor, rest atop the Garden grounds, and nestle into its earth. Collectively titled REFLECT, these works bear witness each day to the passing light and the changing seasons. They also recall seasons of Sawyer’s life and career, adding a retrospective element to the exhibition.
