John Louis Clarke spoke through his exquisite carvings of Montana’s wildlife. Born in 1881, he settled in Midvale which would become East Glacier Park. He spent his days in his rustic studio carving the images he loved, and he was also an adept painter, working mainly in watercolors.
In 1977, his daughter, Joyce opened The Clarke Gallery, selling bronzes of the original carvings, limited edition prints of his paintings, plus note and postcards of his work. Other Montana artists of local acclaim are also featured. After Joyce’s death in 2013, The Clarke Gallery continues through Joyce’s daughter, Dana.
Open daily in the summer, 3rd week June – 3rd week September.
