About the Artist
Clayton Pond is an American Artist whose artwork has been exhibited and collected internationally. He has had over 60 solo exhibits. His work is in the permanent collections at MOMA in NYC, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the National Air and Space Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the National Gallery of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and many more.
Clayton has family ties to central and northern Ohio. During various trips to the area he became fascinated with the shapes and forms of the heavy equipment and automated processes used to convert limestone into aggregate materials used in construction, road building, landscaping and other unique applications. Over the past seven years, he has completed an extensive series of drawings and paintings applying his signature color aesthetic and his creative sense of whimsy to a subject matter that one might not otherwise think to make art about. The "Quarry Series" exhibition has been produced in cooperation with The National Lime and Stone Company (NL&S).
The "Quarry Series" will be introduced in a show at The Marathon Center for the Performing Arts (MCPA) in Findlay, Ohio from mid-May through the month of June 2023. The artist has created a striking and exceptional painting series focusing on the intersection of 21st-century art and industry.
All paintings are acrylic paint on canvas. The painting sizes range from 72x48" to 18x18". All are framed and ready to hang. A photo catalog of the series is available upon request.
