“I like to spend my time surrounded by beautiful things of my choosing. Everything that is in the gallery is carefully chosen, not just randomly chosen because I think it will sell.”
Lauren Clark, a partner in Tokonoma Gallery from 1992 to 2006 and owner of her own eponymous gallery since 2006, has a strong connection to her business, her artists, and her community. The gallery space is never too strictly planned. It is allowed to develop organically, forming integral elements of the whole, according to her own taste. It’s a creative process.
“One might think it is more static than it really is, but everything is always changing. Everything from bringing in fresh flowers, periodically changing the wall colors, reconfiguring the floor plan of furniture and sculpture to hanging new shows, taking on new artists, and replacing art that is sold with something new.”
The gallery features fine art and contemporary craft by regional and internationally recognized artists in all media. Many of those featured are local artists, which allows personal relationships to develop, forming a whole group of people, a community.
“The gallery is my work of art; but always a work in progress”
Lauren Clark Fine Art Gallery is located at 325 Stockbridge Road, Great Barrington, Massachusetts.
