|The following exhibition, simply
entitled "Raven", first showed at the Little Gallery in Prince Albert,
Saskatchewan on May 17, 1998 to rave reviews. It has since
been touring under the sponsorship of The Mendel Art Gallery throughout
Saskatchewan and will continue to tour well into the year 2000.
Consisting of several large paintings, woodcut prints, sound box, and a
celtic shaman's drum, this exhibition explores the mythology and role the
raven has played across cultures and time in the Northern Hemisphere.
As Rigmor Widell Clarke avers, this exhibition is not a "literal record
of these mythologies, but rather a loose interpretation of them."
Spanning over eight years of creative effort, the pieces in the Raven exhibition
are a testament to the lasting impression this magnificent bird has made
not only on the artist, but on the many patrons and visitors who have been
fortunate enough to view Clarke's work.
