About the Author
Garth Clark was born in Pretoria, South Africa, in 1947. In 1979, three years after arriving in the U.S., he and Margie Hughto curated the groundbreaking show A Century of Ceramics in the United States, the first survey of its kind, for the Everson Museum of Art. This exhibition resulted in the formation of the Institute for Ceramic History, known today as the Ceramic Arts Foundation (CAF), of which Clark is the director. Responsible for nearly 400 exhibitions, Clark is also the author of numerous catalogue essays, articles and books, which garnered him the 1980 Art Critics Award from the NEA.
