Illumination: Sculpture by James O. Clark will be on display at the UT Downtown Gallery from October 1 – 30, 2021.

Join us for a First Friday reception on October 1 from 5-8pm.

James O. Clark is a New York-based sculptor who works with light and illumination.

“Light as a material has illuminated my creative search, I continue to be captivated by the mysterious dialogue between light and form. Light is ephemeral, as it dances and changes composing space, defines, reflects, refracts, bends, and teases the volume and mass of forms. Light has created a symbiotic relationship with me in my exploration capturing my childhood creative adventure and developing an exciting lifelong journey.”
