Mark Bowles has been an active participant in the art world for more than 40 years. Crocker Art Museum Chief Curator Scott A. Shields says, “Bowles's paintings are subjective, reductively simple, and filled with blazing light and color – a harmonious balance between the landscape he knows well and his passion for abstraction and the physical act of painting.” In an informal conversation with his friend Bill Crichton, Mr. Bowles will share images from his career, discussing his path to finding his voice as an artist.
