Marcia Clark : Unfolding Arctic Memories

March 27 – April 21, 2018

Reception :  Thursday March 29, 5-8pm

Gallery Talk on April 21, 4 pm. Closing reception follows

Marcia Clark’s new paintings were inspired by a recent visit to Greenland during a spring thaw — an annual reminder of the changing climate.  She conveys the metamorphosis through her active brushwork, shifting forms and rhythms, in paintings that are on a variety of formats.

The exhibition includes three small folding screens.  It interests Clark that a folding screen occupies physical space, sometimes mimicking the painted bends and turns of the landscape.  “One sees a screen sequentially”, she says, “and that long horizontal format with its folded interruptions adds a dimension of time and sets up a tempo as eye and mind linger on some elements and pass lightly over others.”

Marcia Clark has exhibited at venues that include the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Museum of the City of New York, the Hudson River Museum, and Albany Institute of History and Art as well as venues in Canada, Greenland and Iceland. She was a recipient of the Childe Hassam Award, a National Endowment of the Arts Artist in Residence grant, and has written for Smithsonian Magazine, retracing travels of Thomas Cole, first of the Hudson River School painters. Clark has a BFA degree in painting from Yale University and a MFA degree from SUNY New Paltz. This is her tenth exhibition at Blue Mountain Gallery.
