Meet the Artist: Clarence Heyward
October 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join Mavis Gragg for an Artist Talk with artist Clarence Heyward!
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Clarence Heyward is a painter and collagist. He relocated to North Carolina to study Art Education at North Carolina Central University. His work investigates cultural truths, challenges stereotypes and questions identity. Clarence believes it’s important to “paint his truth” and uses persons of color as subjects in his work as homage to his culture. Beginning his journey as a full-time artist in 2019, he is best known for his dynamic and fresh take on figurative art. Heyward’s work has been featured in venues including the 21c Museum of Durham and galleries including City Gallery Raleigh, the Cary Gallery of Fine Artist and the Triangle Cultural Art Gallery.
Meet the Artist, a monthly artist talk series, is designed to connect aspiring and experienced collectors with artists who should be in your collection.
Attendees will learn the why and how of building an #artcollection, how to protect your collection, and how collecting art supports artists, our communities, and our culture. Most importantly, you will interact with contemporary artists and learn about their work and how to get their work in your collection.
This series is hosted in collaboration with Provident1898 and the Understudy.
