Todd Clercx - Revealing Souls of People and Places

Shows, Performances, and Exhibitions
Date: Friday, January 12, 2018

Venue: Hallberg Center for the Arts  |  City: Wyoming, MN

Presented by the Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community, this intriguing exhibit is an explorative retrospective of the work of painter Todd Clercx with the opening ceremonies running from 4pm to 8pm on November 30, 2017 at the Hallberg Center for the Arts.  Free and open to the public, this opening night will be a wonderful opportunity to see some incredible artwork and meet the artist.  Complimentary refreshments will be served.

Born and raised in St. Paul, MN, Todd Clercx uses the world around him as his subject matter.  As he says, “I use paint to record my life and the people around me.  My works are bits and moments of life that would most likely be forgotten.”  In his portraits and landscapes, Todd captures moods and emotions by using crude brush strokes as evidence of the creative process and paying close attention to light and shadows.  He relies on spontaneous-intuitive gesture and a gut feeling about when to stop.  Capturing the essence of a person or place is the goal, and honesty is essential.  Todd’s paintings celebrate the life he lives as an artist, a father, a husband, a son, a brother, a teacher, and a human being striving to be good.

Todd’s art has been the centerpiece of gallery shows nationally; his commissions hang in businesses and homes throughout the Midwest.  He is a sought-after art judge and critic, and he has sold his work in auctions for a variety of charities.  Locally, his art has been featured in the press and community events.  Todd was an art instructor for over 20 years, teaching in the same classroom his dad taught in (also a professional artist and the one who taught him how to paint) at Roseville Senior High School.
