Finding Light: Works on Paper by Rob Clark in Café Arts  – October 30, 2014 through January 18, 2015
Artist's Reception: 2-4 p.m., Sunday, November 9, 2014

Much of Rob Clark’s work from the years has been derived by exploring paper as the light source with a carving away process to permit the light to define the work.  This includes works in ink, pencil and water color which are included in this show.  Most of the work is figurative and consistently part a story connection: mentor, family, friend, and ten second interactions on the street……sometimes the story is obvious while others are private.  Clark’s grandfather was a pastor and story teller.  His gifts are passed on through these drawings and their stories.  It is spiritual to tell the story accompanying a drawing.
