Wednesday arts pick: Last days to see “Margo Sawyer: Reflect” at Umlauf

It’s the last few days to enjoy Margo Sawyer’s sublime multi-part installation “Reflect” at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum.  “Reflect” continues through Oct. 19.

Inside the gallery there’s an elegant floor piece in the interior gallery with 55,000 chrome beads alongside dozens of glass, metal and acrylic elements.

Outside on the ground there’s blue- and white-colored tiles in geometric shapes embedded  in the grounds and a group of antique Elgin-Butler bricks stacked into pyramids.
