Courtney Garrett Is known for taking something as simple as the horizon or a cloud and turning it into a powerful, emotive image. The result is a dreamlike work that is at once moving and calming. Her work is collected around the world in both private and corporate collections. Notably, she was chosen by the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund to create the Foundation’s first historically documented international series, translating the life and work of activist Dian Fossey using a mixed-media process. Her international influence continued with an opening at the Artist Project NYC, where her work earned multiple shows in Taipei and Greece. In 2011, she opened at The Heritage Museum in Tarpon Springs, Florida representing American Art in a Greek-American exhibition. In 2014, her work reached new height’s at the opening of “Skylight - Landscapes: Traditional and Contemporary” at the Oglethorpe University Museum of Art, in Atlanta, GA. At the OUMA exhibition, Garrett represented 21st Century landscape abstraction as an evolutionary link from traditional masters.
