Margaret Garrett
artwork bio resume
Margaret Garrett's abstract paintings and works on paper have been included in many group and solo shows in New York City and on the East End of Long Island. In New York, her work has been shown at the Heidi Cho Gallery and Markel Fine Arts, both in Chelsea. On Long Island she has shown at Lizan/Topps, Sara Nightingale Gallery, the Nabi Gallery, Whitney Art Works and the Guild Hall Museum. In 2002, Ms. Garrett was commissioned to create a large scale backdrop for the Minnesota Ballet's new ballet "The Passions" which featured a score by her husband, the composer Bruce Wolosoff.

Born in 1965, Margaret Garrett spent her childhood training to be a dancer. At 16, she left home to join the Pennsylvania Ballet Company in Philadelphia. She then went on to dance with other companies and to work in theater and film as a dancer and choreographer. In her early twenties she began painting, finding something spiritually akin to dancing in the color and movement of the paint while at the same time opening up a vibrant new world to explore. Soon, she was devoting herself full time to painting and studying privately with Thorpe Feidt, a disciple of George McNeil.
