January 25 - July 5, 2020
The International Museum of Art and Science is presenting the retrospective exhibition of the artworks produced by Kirk Clark, which opens to the public on Saturday, January 25. An opening reception will be held after hours on Thursday, January 30, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The reception is free for IMAS members and general admission rates apply for non-members.
Throughout a sixty-year period, Mr. Clark has engaged in a life-long practice of art making as well as collecting an enviable body of work. He has been a prolific artist by any measure having created over a thousand mono-prints, hundreds of paintings and dozens of sculptures and other artworks in various media. Having initially trained as an undergraduate in Fine Art at the University of New Mexico where he studied under the tutelage of sculptors Charles Madox, Steve Dubove and William Goodman, Kirk Clark has continued to seek out instruction from highly skilled craftspersons throughout his six decade long career and has worked collaboratively with such illustrious artists as print makers Michael Vigil and Shinzaburo Takeda as well as painters and sculptors Thom Wheeler, Jonathan Sobol and (Enrique Carbajal González) Sebastían.
Kirk Clark has pursued an artistic practice founded in the metaphysical principles of Wassily Kandinsky and has primarily worked in a style that is informed by Abstract Expressionism. Yet rather than simply being derivative, Clark has expanded upon mid-Century Formalism in a manner that is both innovative and authentic.
Cosmic Connections: The Metaphysical Practice of Kirk Clark will be on exhibit at the IMAS from January 25, through July 5, 2020. The exhibit is included in cost of General Admission and free for IMAS Members. WIC and EBT cardholders can visit the museum for $1 per person. Admission is free on Sundays thanks to the support of the H-E-B Tournament of Champions.
