The District Gallery is pleased to present "Clark Stewart: Aquamata," opening Friday, October 5.
Following his 2015 automobile series, "Automata," retired University of Tennessee art professor Clark Stewart returns with "Aquamata": a series of sculptural art boats inspired by a century of speed boating and the evolution of its vessels. Like the cars which were intended as maquetes for full-scale vehicles to cruise urban boulevards for the pleasure of onlookers, the boats are similarly conceived to cruise urban waterfronts for the pleasure of viewers.
After many years of maintaining his own antique wooden cabin cruiser here on the Tennessee lakes, Stewart brings his restoration and woodworking skills together with a captivating aesthetic imagination and thorough investigation of classic yachts, speed boats, and racing hydroplanes.
Please join us for a special evening of fun and fantasy boats on Friday, October 5 from 5-8 p.m. Meet the artist and enjoy connecting with fellow boating enthusiasts. The show will be on display in the gallery through October 27.
