June participated in the yearlong (2016-2017) exhibition Toronto: Tributes+Tributaries, 1971-1989 at the Art Gallery of Ontario.  Her piece in the exhibition, Formative Triptych, was subsequenly purchased by the AGO.  As a result, June has been invited to showcase eight pieces of her work in a current exhibition at the gallery.  This AGO exhibition inaugurates the newly renovated J.S. McLean Centre.  Here, June’s pieces highlight her dexterity with materials including photo-etching, collage and 3D work.

Public Words

Text has always fascinated June. Public Words is a series of graffiti she has collected from several cities. Graffiti can be wise, sad, funny or angry but the aspect that fascinates her and guides her selection is the intensity of the writer's desire to anonymously tell others what they thought, loved or hated. They are 'ransom-like' notes that insist on holding the viewer to the will of the writer.  June has self-published several of these pieces in an illustrated book.  There is a limited number of books remaining

Ongoing interests

In keeping with her interest in the use of materials not commonly utilized in fine art “June Clark: Turning scraps into art“ , June has created a new installation entitled Unrequited Love (Dedicated to Colin Rand Kaepernick, the man and his courage).  This new installation sees June attempting to come to terms with her life-long obsession and relationship with the American flag.
