Abstract expressionist painter Ty Clark went full time as an artist in 2014 and moved to Waco from Austin in 2017. Come hear about his journey from a budding artist with a day job to a nationally acclaimed, full-time artist.
Ty has traveled to 5 continents while spending time living, serving, creating, and learning in over 20 countries and cultures around the world. Ty was named one of ten contemporary artists in Austin to watch in 2017 by Culture List and considers himself an artist, writer, designer, activist, and filmmaker.
In addition to the influence of his uncle, sculptor & raku artist Conway “Jiggs” Pearson, Ty studied under American sculptor William Catling while attending Azusa Pacific University’s School of Fine Arts. Ty is a founding member of the Veritas Artist Collective, 5D Artists Group, and The ANWA Collective.

Dallas-and-Austin based Erika Huddleston paints on the site of parks and creeks that are in the process of development but still a little wild. For her Art Center exhibition, Erika spent the summer in Waco making a series of oil paintings at locations along Waco Creek - from the mouth of the creek where it empties into the Brazos at Baylor University through Bell's Hill Park to New Road. Come see the results at the Mayborn Museum. The Mayborn is open 10 am-5 pm Friday-Wednesday and 10 am-8 pm on Thursdays.
