Rachel Clark’s series of oil paintings, The Yearbook Project, is an evolving archive of portraits, cartoons and heads. “If seeing is selection, a process of framing, then I want the face right up to the painting’s edge to amplify its intimacy with all of the fluctuating suggestions of makeup, skin condition, light and shade, using the masklike qualities of the medium,” Clark said. “This perpetually expanding series straddles portraiture and abstracted figuration.”

Clark holds an MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Tennessee and a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Based in Athens, OH, Clark serves as grant writer and Instructor for the Upward Bound Program at Ohio University.

Christopher Troutman, who lives and works in Beaumont, TX, will exhibit his charcoal drawings. “I work from imagination, shifting points of view presented in drawings from the memories that initiate them,” he said. “I strive to avoid external references until my ability to visualize a subject fails, after which I use observational sketches and photographs to complete final details.” Troutman’s drawings place the audience in unexpected and sometimes overwhelming spaces, enabling the resonant experiences from which the drawings are inspired to achieve a similar resonance with viewers.

Troutman holds an MFA in Drawing and Painting from California State University, Long Beach and a BFA in Drawing and Painting with a minor in Art History from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. He currently serves as Assistant Professor of Art at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.
