Brandon Clarke: Uncover

May 15 – November 13 2023
Brandon Clarke: Uncover celebrates the journey of self-discovery. This exhibition invites viewers to look within to uncover lost parts of themselves, just as the artist did while creating the artwork. Brandon Clarke, a second-generation artist, reclaimed his artistic identity during the pandemic – a time where society was in many ways forced to introspect. Through this expression came healing, empowerment, freedom, and authenticity. Clarke strives to inspire others with his fearless approach to creation.
