John Clark

Penland, NC

Resident Artist 1986-88


"When I first became a resident, Jim Lawton, who was in his second year, advised me, “Make the most of just two years so someone else can have the opportunity.” He was offering his opinion on whether any resident should plan to stay in the program for the suggested two years or apply for the optional third."
