Henao Contemporary Center
Harold Garde: Last of the Game Changers
Opening Feb. 6th – March 27th
Another new gem in Orlando is the Henao Contemporary Center, which just took down a successful showing of works by photographer and art expert Josh Garrick to make room for Harold Garde. Starting out with these two multimuseum veterans portends more wonderful things at the center (5601 Edgewater Drive, 407-272-0317). Nonagenarian Garde is still working in his Orlando and Maine studios, producing his signature “Strappo” and abstract expressionist works. He originated the Strappo technique of applying a heavy layer of paint to glass, then pulling the dried paint off in random strips, and finally making a new work by recombining those straps of paint.
