John Clark - Part time resident of Astoria, makes prints and drawings based on his perception of childhood memories - one part Catholicism, one part Republican politics, and lots of tales of the Great Depression.

Studied painting at Portland State University in the early Seventies. Discovered printmaking and thought it was much cooler than painting. Has worked as a printmaker for 32 years and has had to seek employment in the steel trades because he can't sell his cruddy art.
