Exhibit CalendarFriday, April 24, 5-9 p.m. – Automata: Art Cars by Clark Stewart
Clark Stewart joined the UT art faculty in 1966 and was granted Professor Emeritus in 2005. He has taught regularly at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. His work has been included in over 200 exhibitions at museums and universities worldwide and has been acquired by many corporate and private collections. “As a teenager in Orange County, CA, I restored an MG-TC to concours level and progressed through a gaggle of Alphas, Porsches, and MGs. The Automata project is my attempt to bring my passions of art making, modeling and machinery together. Automata are sculptures of imaginary, somewhat fantastic cars that are loosely based on exotic cars of the ’30’s Deco Period. Most are around 15” long and made of wood, metal, and materials not associated with cars, such as velvet and ivory. They have no provision for passengers and are designed as pure machines.
The show continues through May 30.
