Panel Discussion, March 14 at 5 PM: “Artists Confronting Climate Change,” Martica Sawin, Moderator
Gallery Talk, March 21 at 2:30 PM
Marcia Clark’s new Arctic paintings reveal a world of tundra and ice, suggesting the metamorphosis of a landscape by brush stroke, movement and rhythm. Her odysseys to Greenland and Iceland year after year are layered with personal meaning.
I keep returning to the Arctic and am captivated by the beauty of what I see, states the artist. But what was once excitement, witnessing the extraordinary and new, now holds the poignancy of a moment captured that’s passing away.
Multi-panel paintings in oil and smaller paintings on canvas and aluminum formats explore the tundra fragmented into puddles and bits of ice with small cascades flowing over the rocks, reminders of accelerated seasonal changes melting ice fields and sea ice.
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, the Albany Institute of History and Art where she has had two solo exhibitions, the SIM Gallery in Reykjavik and the Ilulissat Kunstmuseum. She has been 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 ninth exhibition at Blue Mountain Gallery.
