About Clark + Del Vecchio
Garth Clark and Mark Del Vecchio founded Garth Clark Gallery in Los Angeles in 1981 and opened a second space in New York in 1983 at 24 West 57th Street. They were soon established as the preeminent international dealers in 20th century ceramics and have organized eight major international symposia on ceramic history and criticism, published numerous books and catalogues and received a slew of prestigious awards, both lifetime achievement and honorary doctorates. In addition Clark was made a Fellow of the Royal College of Art, London and was the only practicing dealer to receive the College Art Association’s Mather Award for distinguished achievement in art journalism.
They now live in Santa Fe, work as private dealers and are in the process of organizing two traveling exhibitions, Christine Nofchissey McHorse and Diego Romero. Clark is finishing two more books (his 52nd and 53rd), Lucio Fontana Ceramics and Homage To R. Mutt: Writing on Marcel Duchamp's Fountain since 1917.
