"Garon’s show is an innovative and relatively new expansion of context and content which could have stood on its own as art as art, but Garon has taken on a far deeper task with art that can be amplified by its sources, market, and cultural impact." -Lucy Lippard
"Garon employs decaying natural artifacts primarily as symbols of humanity's fragility. But her contrasts of hard and soft intrigue the eye as well as the mind." -Mark Jenkins, The Washington Post
