Margaret Garrett is an American artist and dancer whose work explores movement, shape, rhythm, and the unfolding of contrapuntal patterns. Born inNorth Carolina and raised in Pennsylvania, she grew up training to be a dancer and went on to dance with the Pennsylvania and Cleveland Ballet Companies. In her early twenties, she discovered painting, finding something spiritually akin to dance in the movement of line and color, and switched her focus to visual art.

Garrett’s paintings, prints, and videos have been exhibited in galleries and museums across the United States, including Danese/Corey, the FLAG ArtFoundation, Birnam Wood, the Parrish Art Museum, and Planthouse. Her work has also been included in the Armory Show, Art on Paper, the Dallas Art Fair, and the Contemporary Print Fair at the Baltimore Museum of Art. She has been awarded residencies at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and in Assisi, Italy, and collaborated on two projects with Flatbed Press in Austin, Texas. Her films have been shown in film festivals such as the London International Motion PictureAwards and Frame x Frame in Houston.
