SCITUATE ARTS ASSOCIATION
2019 Juried Show Winner

Photo shown, Best-In-Show, Michelle Clark with "Sonata"

Hanover artist, Michelle Clarke, this year’s Best in Show Winner at the Scituate Arts Association's Juried Show favors mixed media. She speaks of her art background saying, “ I am a self taught artist, I have a studio at The ET right building shared by many talented artists. Sharing their knowledge with each other is the best classroom you can attend. I am a Russell Gallery Artist at the Plymouth Guild. I also show my work at Scituate Art Association, North River Arts, Marshfield, 4th Floor Artists, Rockland, South Shore Art, Cohasset, Pembroke Arts, Quincy Arts, Marina Bay and other South Shore shows. I have been lucky to have won

When asked about her Best in Show work, Michelle states that, “I must start by saying I feel honored and blessed to receive this award, thank you . As a local South Shore artist, my goal is to create a piece of art that cannot be passed by without a connection, even if only for a moment. I would like to draw your attention, whether it be to my technique, vibrant colors, texture or design. My work has been described as a conversation piece; I find this to be the best compliment. Each person is influenced in a different way, lost in thought to enjoy. I start a piece by choice of colors, shapes, textures, mediums, then find something, whether it be a landscape, figure, symbol, a story, a meaning , then I begin . My intent can change by the moment, like a free spirit , lots of fun. I hope you enjoy my work: Sonata.”

The show’s Jurors-Christine Bodnar, Jurgen Lobart & Katherine Smit selected Michelle’s piece, citing that the work was a “Fascinating abstraction with enough structure to explore and keep interest; colors complement; variety of space both negative & postive.”

Michelle’s work, along with almost 80 other juried artists' entries from the South Shore and as far as Barnstable and the Bridgewaters to Weston and Wakefield, will be on display at the Front Street Art Gallery through April 29th with an Awards Reception on Friday, April 12th from 6:30 to 9. The Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 11 to 5 and on Sundays from Noon to 5. The SAA’s Juried Show is sponsored by Business Patrons-Janet Cornacchio, Jack Conway, Scituate and Business Sponsors-- Coastal Heritage Bank and Frame Center of Hanover.
