Description: Sally Clark is a painter, playwright and novelist. She was born in Vancouver, BC. Her father took the family on many trips throughout the province, which developed in her a deep love of the landscape. She has been painting in oils since she was twelve. She completed her B.F.A. degree at York University in Toronto. She lived in Toronto for thirty years and her paintings were exhibited in several galleries during that time. Clark believes that painting is about communicating the feeling of stillness; how it feels to be here in this moment of time. Her other great passion is the theatre which, in contrast, is about movement through time and space. Clark has written several award-winning plays which have been produced nationally and internationally. Her novel, ‘Waiting for the Revolution” was published by Cormorant Books in 2010. The Granville Island Cultural Society, the Vancouver East Cultural Centre and the North Vancouver Arts Council have sponsored solo exhibitions of her paintings. Her work has been in many shows at the Federation Gallery in Vancouver, receiving four Honourable Mentions. She received the 2nd Prize at the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) POTE (Painting on the Edge) Exhibition in 2016. In 2017, Sally Clark was one of the Finalists for the Kingston Portrait Prize, a national portrait competition.
