“[Clark] demonstrates in this show that he’s a master draughtsman, and a very skilled painter.” — Richard Chang, The Orange County Register

The upper level of the museum was devoted to an exhibition of watercolor paintings by Timothy J. Clark (b. 1951), curated by Curator of Early California Art Janet Blake, a long-time admirer of the artist’s work. “Clark’s watercolors are exquisitely rendered and infused with color and light,” she noted. “He combines the best of both styles of American watercolor painting—the expressive approach of the California school and the technical virtuosity of traditional watercolor in the vein of John Singer Sargent and Winslow Homer.” The exhibition included landscape, still life, and figural works dating from 1993 to the present.

A graduate of the California Institute of the Arts, the Chouinard Art Institute, and California State University, Long Beach, Clark has built a reputation both as a painter and as a teacher of watercolor. He is a faculty member of the Art Students League in New York and has taught at numerous other institutions. Watercolor magazine named him one of the “20 Great Teachers in America” in 2006 and again in 2009. Clark has studios in Capistrano Beach, New York City, and West Bath, Maine. His watercolor and oil paintings are in many public and private collections, including the National Portrait Gallery, The Butler Institute of American Art, and the Farnsworth Art Museum. A sketchbook of drawings he made at Ground Zero within days of the 9/11 attack has been acquired for the Museum of the City of New York.
