"An Outward and Visible Sign of an Inward and Spiritual Turmoil" 

 

For the second event in the 2012/2013 Sister Jeanne File Art History Memorial Lecture Series at Daemen College, Daemen Visual & Performing Arts Director Dr. Laura Watts Sommer will interview visual artist Charles Clough. 

 

This event will take place 7 p.m. November 8, 2012, in the Haberman Gacioch Center for Visual & Performing Arts on the Daemen College campus, 4380 Main Street, in Amherst.

 

The interview will feature a conversation with Clough, talking about his forty years of experience in the art world, particularly, the value and utility of art. This event is free and open to the public.

 

Charles Clough was born in Buffalo in 1951. He attended PS 68 and Hutch Tech for graphic design. He studied for a year at Pratt in Brooklyn and a year at Ontario College of Art in Toronto, and audited classes at UB and Buff State in the early 1970's. Clough believes that the content of his art is a reflection of his youthful experiences of Buffalo's institutions and that this symbolic force will be enriched by making paintings in Buffalo again.

 

Clough co-founded Hallwalls Center for Contemporary Art with Robert Longo and Cindy Sherman in 1974. His works have been presented in over 60 solo, and over 150 group exhibitions and are in the collections of more than 70 museums including the Metropolitan Museum, National Gallery, and Smithsonian American Art Museum.
