Garrison Art Center is pleased to present Vibrant Traces, an exhibition of works on paper by Susan Walsh. The exhibition will be on view at the Riverside Galleries from August 10 through September 15.

Susan Walsh embraces nature as a way of marking time through observable changes in natural phenomena. Her recent works are created outdoors using wind, rain, and sea waves, both as material and co-collaborator. Exploring time through multiple concepts of chance, control, chaos and entropy, Walsh’s process of engaging with nature plays out fluidly, allowing unexpected things to happen. The writings of composer and artist John Cage, especially his ideas about chance, are of special interest to Walsh and make perfect sense in the context of her body of work. Walsh’s sensitivity to the natural elements with which she works is integral to her process and her ability to arrive at poetic transformations on paper.
