Explore the intersection of mindfulness and artmaking through a meditative ink drawing session with Delta Triennial artist Clark Valentine.

Through a series of mindfulness practices and drawing exercises, students are encouraged to explore their “present-ness” in the creation of two drawings. The first drawing will be a response to body, emotion, and thought awareness, while the second drawing will respond to the Museum’s architecture.

Untitled (Weaving 7) (pictured above) is on view in the Delta Triennial from June 28 – August 25, 2024.

About Clark Valentine

Clark Valentine (b.1997) lives and maintains a studio in Little Rock, Arkansas. Valentine received his MFA from Colorado State University with a concentration in Drawing. His drawings explore ideas of spiritual practice and phenomenology through processes of repetition. Using ubiquitous tools, his meticulous drawings become documents of his physical, emotional and spiritual states of being. The geometries of the work seek a tension between movement and stillness, becoming objects of reflection and presentness. 

Valentine’s work has been exhibited in museums, universities, and galleries on five continents, and widely throughout the US. His work is in the permanent loan collection at King’s College, Cambridge (London, UK) as well as the Heintzman Collection, which is pledged to the Peoria Riverfront Museum (Peoria, IL).

Valentine has had solo exhibitions at universities around the US, such as Penn State Altoona (Altoona, PA) and Weber State University (Ogden, UT). In 2023, he had a solo exhibition of his work at the Department of Culture in Dolores, Uruguay. He has attended residencies at The School of Visual Arts, New York; Barac Mannheim Residency in Mannheim, Germany; and Residencia Vatelon in Villa Soriano, Uruguay.

Clark Valentine’s collaborative projects have been exhibited at Melbourne Design Week, in the Terrain Biennial, and in various international museums and universities. He is a founding member of the I Found U Collective – a collective of artists from four continents who work to create international collaborations which investigate the relationship between consciousness and digital space in a globalizing world.
