Holly Johnson Gallery will present the opening of Margo Sawyer's exhibit, "Synchronicity – Kosovo Muse," an exhibition of suspended glass works and window installation. The exhibition draws inspiration from Sawyer’s immersive architectural glass spiral sculpture entitled Synchronicity of Color for Kosovo, commissioned by the US State Department: Art in Embassy Program, for a site-specific sculpture for the U.S. Embassy in Pristina, Kosovo in 2018.

Throughout her career, Sawyer has created work which translates sacred spaces into a contemporary vocabulary. The central actor of her art has long been color, along with the play of light and reflection uniting complex and unexpected unions. Designed to be shown individually or together in groups, these recent hand-painted float glass works hold fragments of a career long fascinated with glass.

The material properties of glass have offered the artist very different qualities with which to work - transparency and reflectivity, color, texture, patterns, and more. The works presented here result from a long working relationship with the renowned glass studio, Franz Mayer of Munich.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through June 25.
