Your ticket includes hors d’oevres and a glass of wine or beer. Witness cut-throat bidding wars as local collectors duel for a piece of fine art before the bang of the auctioneer’s gavel announces the winner!

Born in 1959 in Kelowna BC, Clark received a diploma in Fine Arts (distinction) from the Okanagan College in 1988 and a BFA from the University of Calgary in 1991. After graduation, he moved to Penticton where he continues to run his studio.

In 1998, Clark began working with the defunct Penticton Vees Hockey Club to create a series of paintings depicting the team during its glory days, the mid-fifties. In 1955, the Vees whipped the heavily favoured Russians 5-0 to take back the World Championships for Canada. Little is mentioned in the history books about their amazing Cinderella-run at hockey supremacy. After exhibiting the work in 2000 at the Penticton Museum, Clark created a commissioned mural of the team on the Elks Hall in Penticton. The mural has been featured on Hockey Night in Canada twice. Clark was the winner of the 2015 Okanagan Artist of the Year award.

Glenn Clark has donated a portrait of Lionel Conacher,“The Big Train”, to the auction. Conacher was voted Canada’s top athlete of the first half of the 20th century. He was a member of the 1921 Grey Cup champion Toronto Argonauts, as well as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs baseball team that won the International League Championship in 1926. In hockey, he won a Memorial Cup in 1920, and the Stanley Cup twice: with the Chicago Black Hawks in 1934 and the Montreal Maroons in 1935. Additionally, he won wrestling, boxing and lacrosse championships during his playing career. Conacher retired as an athlete in 1937 to enter politics. He won election to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in 1937, and in 1949 won a seat in the House of Commons. Conacher died from a heart attack during a softball game in 1954.

Currently, Two Rivers Gallery is hosting Clark’s solo exhibition, Wackem Sackem.
