Garner has been involved with sculpture in the Chicago area and nationally for over 30 years. A recipient of numerous prizes and awards, Ted is also an enrolled member of the Standing Rock Sioux Indian tribe. This piece is a tribute to the late sculptor/artist Steve Urry, a longtime resident of the Lincoln Park area. Urry’s studio was above the Biograph Theater and was as much a focus point of the art scene of the time as any other. Urry was a mentor to many current artists.

Garner has exhibited nationally and is in many public and private collections. He combines the power of his Native American Heritage with modern art. The results are singularly recognizable. His technique, combined with his knowledge and history allow us to experience a unique face of modern art.
