You have until August 26 to catch The Long View: Creativity Over Time, a group exhibit at Green Kill Gallery (229 Greenkill Av, Kingston, NY) that features works by Poughkeepsie Friend, Marcia Clark along with artwork by dozens of artists from Blue Mountain Gallery in NYC. It’s inspiring and fun to see work by a so many of artists, not only including Marcia, but pulled together by her expressly for this show. Each one was asked to take a look at their trajectories (a thing that may be of special interest to any of us with a few years behind us) Each chose two pieces, one from their earlier work and one done more recently.
Poughkeepsie Friends Jean and Fred Doneit, Dare Thompson, and husband Doug were among those who crowded into the gallery on July 1 to celebrate the show’s opening.
About Marcia Clark
Marcia Clark lives in the Hudson Valley and in New York City where she is artist/director of Blue Mountain Gallery, exhibiting there and at Longyear Gallery in Margaretville, NY. For many years painting projects have taken her to the Arctic and to the Mediterranean, returning most often to Greenland and Greece. She is known for her experimental paintings using portable gessoed aluminum, Denril and sheets of frosted Mylar pieced together and extending irregularly in many directions, capturing panoramic expanses in these places.
Her paintings are in collections that include the Hudson River Museum, Museum of the City of New York, and the Albany Institute of History and Art. In the past she has been a recipient of the American Academy of Arts and Letters 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. Her involvement with expanded formats led her to organize a travelling exhibition of contemporary panoramas for the Hudson River Museum. Clark has a BFA degree from Yale University and an MFA from SUNY New Paltz.
