“THE NATIONAL GALLERY OF ART IN D.C.& THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM IN NYC – HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MY ONLY DRUG OF CHOICE…FROM MY FIRST TRIP DOWN INTO THE RABBIT HOLE IN 1960— MUSEUM MASTER PIECE ART HAS BEEN THE ONLY ART THAT HAS BEEN OF ANY REAL INTEREST TO ME. I ACTUALLY PAINTED IN THE NGA RIGHT AMONG THE MASTER PIECES THEMSELVES,WHERE ALONE ,I TAUGHT MYSELF HOW TO DRAW AND PAINT——–ONE DAY IN 1985 I WAS WALKING INTO THE NATIONAL GALLERY AND BY ACCIDENT ENTERED A ROOM IN WHICH I WAS THE ONLY ARTIST THAT WAS ALIVE IN THE EXHIBITION—- ENTITLED “COMPOSITIONAL DRAWING” .IT WAS A MIND BLOWING EXHIBIT OF ALL OLD MASTERS EXCEPT FOR MY DRAWING!! I HAD NO IDEA THAT I WAS ALREADY IN THE COLLECTION. SINCE THEN, I HAVE HAD OVER 50 WORKS THAT HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED INTO THE PERMANENT COLLECTION——–THANKS LARGELY DUE TO THE GENEROSITY OF DOROTHY & HERBERT VOGEL……..FROM THIS TIME ON I REALIZED I WAS HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION WITH MY ART WORK—— TO THIS DAY I WORK IN THE TRADITION BEGUN BY THE OLD MASTERS CENTURIES AGO.” – CLARK V.
