Call For Artists to Display and Sell their work in the Clark Center Lobby 2024

Hey, artists! Want to Show Off?

We are now accepting applications from fine artists who are interested in displaying and selling their work!

Our lobby is filled with art from local artists year round! We reserve the space for student artists in March and April and offer it to the community the rest of the year. Mixed media such as oil, watercolor, pastels, pen and ink, sketching, etc. are encouraged, as well as sculptures and photography.

Although we do not charge artists to exhibit, we humbly ask that 20% of the proceeds from pieces that sell be invested back into our student scholarship and grant programs. These scholarships benefit graduating seniors who will be pursuing an education in the arts.

Art pieces are juried for content acceptability and 10 artists will be selected to display their work for two consecutive months.

Our Visual Arts Exhibit is open to the public during our Box Office hours which are Tuesday-Friday 1pm-6pm and Saturday 12pm-4pm. 

For more information, please contact our business office at 805-489-4196 or art@clarkcenter.org

Current Artists

Linda DeRosa

Photography

Linda DeRosa is a versatile artist specializing in abstract paintings and photography. In her exhibition you can see Linda’s artistic vision through her photography of epic landscapes. For Linda, these expertly captured images are fond memories of time spent with her daughter exploring Canadian National Parks. She has always been captivated by the contrasting landscape of Canada compared to her sunny home in California. Her favorite part of the creative process is searching for spectacular landscapes and close-ups in nature. Linda is also intrigued by the countless combinations of textures, layers, and colors available through digital manipulation of her original photographs.

Susan Kounanis

Oil Painting

Susan Kounanis, a Central Coast native, captures the duality of dark and bold richness of a scene along with it’s soft, subtle, and quiet darkness within shadows. Inspired by nature and having an appreciation for antiques, Susan enjoys pairing fresh flowers or fruit with vintage cases or glass as subjects for her still life paintings. Although most of her works are still lives, she enjoys the challenge of painting landscapes, figures, and pet portraits.

“Honestly, I just paint what makes me happy and touches my heart! All art brings me joy and I thank you for letting me share mine with you. I hope it brings you as much joy as it brings me!”
