The artists' reception will take place on Saturday, June 14, 2014, and the exhibit will remain open to the public through Sunday, July 20.
Clark, a Queens native and Long Island resident, is internationally known as one of the best photographers to shoot the surf. His past work has been featured in various media outlets and magazine covers and his clientele include Tommy Hilfiger
, Miller Coors and Mercedes-Benz
. His work has earned him the 2nd Annual Follow the Light Foundation Grant by Surfing Magazine.
Matt describes his photographs for "Swells & Swirls" as, "Movement. Swirls and twirls contrasted against the breaking surf that spin before a dramatic fiery sky, all captured within a photograph."
