Work of the Week: Bird and Bridge

Date: Sep 11, 2017

The Work of the Week for September 11 - 18 is Bird and Bridge by John Clark.

As an artist and as a teacher, John Clark was a major influence in Western Canada. His later paintings (of which this is representative) were often large with emphatic design and striking imagery. John was the Professor of Painting at the University of Lethbridge in 1986 where he worked until his death in 1989, at the age of 46. Read more about the artist in the AFA virtual museum.

The 189th Meeting of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Board of Directors is taking place in Lethbridge this week. Our Board Directors will have an opportunity to meet members of the arts community in Lethbridge while they are there. We are pleased to feature an artist from the AFA collection who was influential in the Lethbridge visual arts scene. 

We would also like to extend our thanks to CASA Lethbridge, Allied Arts Council Lethbridge, and other community partners for welcoming our Board Directors and staff into your community.
