Timothy J. Clark: A Retrospective at The Butler Institute of American Art
Timothy J. Clark, Maine Workshop of Ray Small circa 1997. Awarded the National Academy William A. Paton Prize for a painting by an American born artist (2000). Recipient of the National Arts Club‘s Genevieve Cain Award for watercolor (2001).

YOUNGSTOWN.- The watercolor and oil paintings of Timothy J. Clark are represented in permanent museum collections including The Butler Institute of American Art, Farnsworth Art Museum (Maine), and the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC. This mid-career retrospective opened at the Pasadena Museum of California Art in January 2008, then will travell to the Butler Institute of American Art, and will conclude at the Whistler House Museum of Art in Lowell, Massachusetts in the fall of 2008.

Timothy J. Clark’s watercolor and oil paintings are represented in permanent museum collections including The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio, Maine’s Farnsworth Art Museum, and the Smithsonian/National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC. The artist’s sketchbook of drawings of Ground Zero, created at the still-smoldering site within days of the attack, were acquired for the collection of the Museum of the City of New York.

A mid-career retrospective of Clark’s work will open at the Pasadena Museum of California Art in January 2008, then travel to the Butler Institute of American Art in Ohio in the spring, and to the Whistler House Museum of Art in Lowell, Massachusetts in the fall. Hammer Galleries will mount a solo exhibition of his paintings in New York in January 2009.

In conjunction with Clark’s retrospective, a book, Timothy J. Clark, will be published in January 2008 and will also serve as an exhibition catalog. With an introduction by Will Barnet, a biographical essay by the director of California’s Irvine Museum, Mr. Jean Stern, a critical essay by renowned art historian and award-winning author Dr. Lisa Farrington, and an afterword by Ira Goldberg, director of the Art Students League of New York, the book will provide a thorough review of four decades of the artist’s work including drawings, oils and watercolor paintings. In the book, Dr. Farrington writes of Clark’s paintings as “diffidently profound documents of human existence,” and she notes his “almost uncanny ability to infuse rudimentary and inert objects...with something akin to a human soul.”

Clark’s recent awards include the William A. Paton Award at the National Academy’s 175th Exhibition, the President’s Award in 2003 and the Salzman Award in 2004 in the National Arts Club’s annual exhibiting members show, and the Watercolor Award in the Allied Artists annual exhibition in 2005, all in New York City.

Paintings by Clark have been exhibited in international exhibitions at the Allied Museum in Berlin, Germany, the Danubiana Museum in Bratislava, Slovakia, and the Topkapi Museum in Istanbul,Turkey. His work can be viewed in fall 2007 exhibitions at Hammer Galleries, at the Bennington Center for the Arts in Vermont, and in the Allied Artists and National Arts Club’s members’ exhibitions in New York City.

A faculty member at the Art Students League in New York, Clark has also taught at the University of Hawaii at Hilo, the Worcester Museum of Art in Massachusetts, the National Academy School in New York, and Yale University’s Graduate School of Architecture’s Continuity and Change Program in Rome. He was named one of the “20 Great Teachers in America” by Watercolor magazine in Fall 2006.

Clark, a graduate of the California Institute of the Arts and the Chouinard Art Institute, serves on the Cal Arts Alumni Board in Valencia, California, and maintains studios in Capistrano Beach, California, West Bath, Maine, and New York City.
