Timothy J. Clark on Robert Henri

2:00 p.m.
Included with museum admission
(members free; non-members $5 or $7)

Join artist and educator Timothy J. Clark as he examines the special contributions of Robert Henri. During his lifetime, Henri was esteemed both as an artist and as one of the most influential art educators of his time. His legacy continues today in major exhibitions that recently toured the country and in the exhibition currently on view at Laguna Art Museum.

Clark will share how Henri followed some rules and shattered others. He will examine with an artist’s eye the works at the museum, share his insight from his visits to Henri’s studio in New York, and look at Henri’s lasting influence that is still seen at the National Academy of Design and the Art Students League in New York where Clark teaches today.

 

Clark’s watercolors, oils and drawings are in public, private and institutional collections, notably the Smithsonian/National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C, the Butler Museum of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio, the City Museum of New York, the Library of Congress/ Works on Paper, and Maine’s Farnsworth Art Museum.  His paintings have been seen in multiple national solo museum exhibitions including at Laguna Art Museum and have been shown in international group exhibitions from Berlin to Istanbul’s Topkapi Museum.

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