This event has ended.

This series of paintings from the 1960’s and 1970’s reflect the silence and mystery of the city and call to mind the romantic nostalgia of Edward Hopper. It is this sense of mystery, while at the same time using subject matter where basic forms and gestures are somewhat familiar, that Clutz creates a psychological relationship with the viewer allowing them to experience his basic premises about form, light, and the humanness and soul of the city and its dwellers. Included in this exhibition is an important full-portrait painting of Mr. Clutz’s longtime partner, John who recently passed away. The painting captures a quiet moment in time in the same spirit as the rest of the series.
