Gary Harrington grew up in Wilmington, but lives in Gulfport, Mississippi now. He is both a musician an artist and quite a wonderful one. When I Googled him (and by the way I am a great Google-er Gary, I was astounded. I found your website and so many amazing Youtube videos I was in awe. It is an honor to add you to my Blog.
I was not aware you had gone to Vietnam and for that I salute you. According to Gary’s Website and I quote him: “heattended the University of Delaware where he mostly took up space. So he dropped out and became part of the Psychedelic Movement of the mid 1960’s, spending a lot of time in New York’s Greenwich Village. He was greatly influenced by Andy Warhol and Peter Max. In 1967 Gary opened the first psychedelic shop in Wilmington, Delaware, where he began making posters, jewelry and assorted pop items.
in 1968 Gary entered the United States Army where he spent two tours of duty in the Republic of South Vietnam as a combat artilleryman. While there he also mastered the art of making something out of nothing in order to survive.”
He opened an Art Gallery in Wilmington. Gary’s studio is now located in Gulfport, Mississippi, where he specializes in new millennium paintings and wood constructed sculptures that reflect life and movement.
