Joseph Clark Gallery is a Black-owned art gallery in the Northside. It is the inspiration of curator and owner Lowery Joseph Clark, an African American entrepreneur. An avid collector of African art for more than 25 years, he opened the Gallery in 2011.
Joseph Clark Gallery strives to expose visitors to the history and cultures of the ethnic groups represented in their displays by placing the artifacts within the context of their origins in order to provide insight into their use and function.
The Joseph Clark Gallery showcases the traditional arts and artifacts of Sub-Saharan Africa. African statues and figures, masks, ritual objects, earthenware, textiles, tribal currencies, bronze figures and plaques, terracotta, jewelry, dolls and so much more are available for viewing and purchasing. The gallery also features the varied artworks of local artists and artisans.
The gallery has many artforms featured for sale on their website. Along with a display and purchase of art, Joseph Clark Gallery offers other services such as repair and restoration of artwork and mounting on metal bases.
As a student of African art, Lowery determined that the Cincinnati tri-state area did not have an art gallery that featured a diverse selection of African Art. Joseph Clark Gallery’s primary objective is to provide exceptional and unique art from the African continent with emphasis on the people of Sub-Saharan Africa. The gallery strives to expose visitors to the history and cultures of the ethnic groups represented in its displays and place the art objects themselves in context to provide insight into their use and functions.
