Ed Clark, secretary's Biography
Ed Clark is an art dealer and appraiser and president of Look North, an Inuit art gallery dealing in sculpture, painting, prints, and photographs, with locations in Guildhall, VT and New York City. He is an accomplished fine arts photographer and co-founder of Collective Vision, a Boston-based photography collective. He lives in Guildhall with his partner, Laura Wilson who is a criminal defense attorney. His pastimes include hiking, raising and training Belgian Sheepdogs, and dog sledding in the eastern Canadian Arctic.
Mr. Clark is a graduate of Ruskin College at Oxford University in England, the former chair of the board of the Massachusetts College of Art, and currently a member of the board of the Frost Place in Franconia, NH. He has worked and lived in both the United States and Europe and brings to the Council diverse managerial level experience in the arts, banking, government, and labor relations.
This vast experience greatly informs his involvement with the Council. "Art is a necessity almost as old as humankind and is an indispensable means of uniting the individual with society. State involvement in and patronage of the arts is nearly as old. The work of the Vermont Arts Council is crucial to the enrichment of all Vermonters."
