Featured In Charles Clark Gallery Now

'Lines Shapes and Faces', pop by to check out Girish Chandok @eastvan_artist exhibition, running until March 4th.⁠

Artist Statement:⁠

This collection draws influence from classical portraiture, print media, and the abstract expressionism movement and is created using a diverse range of mediums – oil paints, watercolor, charcoal, inks, crayons, acrylics, and pastels – continually exploring their unique possibilities.⁠

As a portrait artist, I am captivated by what makes each face distinct. I find endless fascination in the nuances of the human face. Each line and curve tells a unique story, translating into a rich tapestry of personalities, beauty, and diverse expressions.⁠

Beginning each piece with a loose plan, my creative process embraces spontaneity, allowing every artwork to take on a life of its own, guiding me to unexpected and exciting destinations.⁠

Ultimately, my art is an exploration of the profound beauty within the faces encountered daily. It celebrates individuality, self-expression, and my lifelong love of drawing the human face.⁠

I invite viewers to join me in this exploration, starting at the surface and discovering their own narrative as they dive deeper, connecting with the people portrayed in each piece.


Tucked in at the far end of the Tasting Room is Charles Clark. No, he's not a bar regular but our flex gallery space where we host rotating art exhibitions, born of the idea of making art accessible in unexpected places.

“Now I Am Alone, etc.”


January 6th-February 4th, 2024

I’ve been thinking about the fault lines between public and private for some time, how they shimmer and change their meanings and “charge” constantly, how they make theatre out of everything, make economic make-believe, and how, together, they behave like a peristaltic tract that produces history and culture and society and selves.

And I started gluing these posters around town to see what would happen.
