VisArts presents Edge of the Forest, an installation by Stephanie Garmey in the Gibbs Street Gallery from April 22 to May 24. The artist will give a special artist talk on Sunday, May 24, 2:00 p.m. in the gallery.

Working with cut paper, drawing, encaustics, wood and glass, Stephanie Garmey creates a vignette that explores the solitude of travel and the memory of specific natural environments. Of her current work, she says, “I am interested in the slowing of time through the meditative recollection of the regenerative and corroding events of nature.”
