Closing Reception

Clark will be at Blackfish Gallery from 3-5pm on Saturday, August 31st to host an informal closing reception for her show “Pilgrimage.” A gathering of new installations and paintings that reflect on Clark’s mother’s journey into deeper dementia, the work reaches out in a sensitive and moving manner to touch the hearts and minds of all who have been on difficult journeys in their lives whether physical, emotional or spiritual. This is the last day to see the show, and she looks forward to seeing all those who have been meaning to come, but haven’t! She also welcomes all those who would like to view the work again and talk further about it.

Clark’s upcoming exhibit “Pilgrimage” examines dementia, spirituality and family as seen through the lens of stories recounted by Clark’s mother as she she moves through the stages of dementia herself. Using traditional and ancient Byzantine iconographic methods, as well as those of contemporary painting, found and made objects, Clark has created a trio of installations that transpose her mother’s framework of sorrow and loss in her life into art pieces that reflect the compression of time and the journey that is individual, yet at the same time universal.

Exhibit and all events are at Blackfish Gallery, 420 NW 9th, Portland, OR

Wednesday, July 31st, 5:00 p.m. - 8:00
