Timothy J. Clark, Artist

Timothy J. Clark’s expressive interiors, urban landscapes, figures and personal still lifes have been celebrated in solo museum exhibitions on both coasts and in the heart of the country. A modern, master figurative painter, he recasts traditions of painting for a new generation.

Happy 100th Birthday to National Treasure and Friend,
Wayne Thiebaud

We celebrate Wayne’s painterly, joyful art – especially welcome in 2020.

We hope that you will savor this panel discussion with Wayne, myself, and art historian Gene Cooper from 2018. It gives insights into his commitment to the arts.

Group Exhibit


November 30, 2019 – December 19, 2020
Polk Museum of Art
800 E. Palmetto Street
Lakeland, Florida

This wonderful exhibition opens with this painting of mine from the Museum’s permanent collection. Inspired by Marriott enthralled in a book, the painting seems especially appropriate for this era, when so many of us have returned to the joys of reading.

The Reader

About the exhibit…
“Sometimes the greatest connections can be made by unexpected juxtapositions. In this installation of works selected from the permanent collection, we seek resonances of works of art of different styles and from across time and media. By inviting visitors to look closely and to think actively about why chosen pieces may have been placed side by side, Juxtapositions proposes no right or wrong answers, initiating instead an open-ended inquiry into the visual and thematic links that connect us and the objects all around us.”


Major Donation of Clark Artworks to the Polk Museum

Leslie and Betsy Roy have generously donated twenty-eight figure paintings and drawings to the Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College.

Leslie Roy notes “we’ve lived with Clark’s paintings in our home for over twenty-five years and it’s our great pleasure to make these works available for museum visitors to the Polk’s permanent collection”.

H. Alexander Rich, Director and Curator of the Museum, states that “we are thrilled to receive these masterworks in drawing and painting by Timothy Clark. Our American figurative art collection already contains one wonderful Clark painting, and, thanks to this incredible gift from the Roys, we can greatly enhance the holdings of the museum.”
