Karin Clarke

Karin Clarke, the owner and director of Karin Clarke Gallery in downtown Eugene for the past sixteen years, establishing herself as a respected figure in the Oregon art scene. Karin opened the gallery with the goal of creating museum quality shows to recognize regional artists, including the work of her parents, artists Margaret Coe and the late Mark Clarke. In that time, she’s organized over 200 exhibits, and the gallery has gained a stellar reputation for showing major contemporary artists of Oregon. In addition, Karin regularly curates from the estates of some of Oregon’s most sought-after artists, like Rick Bartow, Nelson Sandgren, David McCosh, Carl Hall, and numerous others. In 2016, she founded the very successful Eugene Biennial regional juried show.

Karin has a strong background in studio arts, art history, exhibit design, and art appraisal. She has exhibited her own artwork, and in July of 2018, had a solo show of her recent plein-air oil paintings of Italy.

Karin serves regularly as an art juror and on art selection committees in our region, including Art About Agriculture, All Around Oregon Annual, and The Eugene Biennial.  In 2017, she supported the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art curators in preparation for a six-month exhibit of her parents' work called Our Lives in Paint. She has won awards for her own artwork as well as in her business, including the Down-Town Eugene Excellence for Arts & Culture Award (2007) and Lane Community College’s Distinguished Alumni Award (2011).
