After 20 long pandemic months, life might not yet be back to normal, but CLARK’s team remembers fondly the times when we had TOO MUCH FUN, NOT ENOUGH CASH.
After over a year of pandemic times, we recognize we are not out of the woods yet. At CLARK, we miss parties and the good times we've shared, and we can't wait to come together again. Until then, we can appreciate the fact that we have TOO MUCH FUN, (even if we don’t have) ENOUGH CASH.
Every three weeks, until December 15, CLARK will share a story. These tales remind us of funny moments spent together, at the heart of our mission that supports artists and the community we serve.
CONTRIBUTE TO CLARK’S HISTORY, MAKE A DONATION!
Like the time Paul Litherland made butter sculptures.
It was in 1997. It was his first exhibition as a new member of CLARK. Also new in Paul’s life was his relationship with artist Karen Trask. He had planned to sculpt nine replicas of Montreal buildings out of butter. Karen offered to help, but her warm hands quickly melted the fat. Paul finished the sculptures alone with his icy hands.
As they say, opposites attract!
Psst: They are still together 😉
Like the time a magician played a trick on us!
To this day, the circumstances surrounding the event remain unclear. Someone told us that one December evening in 2002, a magician made a playing card (the two of diamonds) appear on the CLARK’s ceiling of CLARK’s largest exhibition space. The card was completely stuck in a concrete crack and did not budge for several years. It was only during our 2013 renovations that we realized it had mysteriously vanished.
As of yet, no one has solved the enigma of its appearance/disappearance.
