WASHINGTON, DC.- Family Reunion: Portraits by Timothy J. Clark is currently on view at Howard University’s Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts Gallery. Continuing in the tradition of John Singer Sargent that celebrates the relationship between drawing and painting, Clark– hailed for his still lifes, architectural interiors and exteriors, and portraits–is among America’s foremost watercolor artists.

At the invitation of Dr. Lisa Farrington, director of the Howard University Gallery of Art, who curated the exhibition, Clark was asked to create new works for his one-man show–namely portraits of the “family” of friends with whom he has maintained close personal relationships throughout his life. Among them are the painters Gaye Ellington, the granddaughter of Duke Ellington, Faith Ringgold and James Little; musicians Jack McVea, Teddy Buckner, Art Davis, Michael White, and others from the world of jazz.

Created over the past year, this suite of stunning portraits shows both the finished paintings and the creative processes of the artist which includes his preparatory drawings. Intended for both the public as well as the students of the Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts, the Clark portraits are on view through March 7, 2022. The exhibition is supported in part by a grant from the Art Bridges Foundation.

As noted by Dr. Farrington: “In the 21st century, when the art world is flush with inventive and unorthodox methods and media, the quiet classicism of Tim Clark’s watercolors emerges tranquil and poignant from the mayhem of the contemporary art scene. Each portrait underscores two things: the artist’s ability to see into his subjects, and the souls of the subjects themselves, revealed by the artist’s deft hand. The works in this exhibition are as much records of the artist’s subjects as they are records of his presence in their lives. Clark’s gaze is sagacious and unflinching, and he has an unremitting passion to record the world as he sees it.”

The exhibition runs through March 7th. Gallery hours are 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. For more information visit or
