“It is the solitary human figure I first notice in Galen Garwood’s work. Then the animals. Then the remarkable color and light. I do not know who that solitary figure is and at the same time I feel I’ve known him all my life. Whoever he is, the animals, the light, and the color seem to be recompense for his solitude. I am grateful Garwood is at work among us….”

Lewis Hyde, poet and editor, from Passport, Sam Hamill and Galen Garwood, Broken Moon Press,1989
