Darren Clack, Concrete artist,

If you've visited my studio in the Artist Gallery at the Esplanade, you know I share space with three other artists. One of them is concrete artist Darren Clack. Darren works with concrete, glass, and a variety of other materials to make some great stuff.

On a recent visit, a couple of kids made some designs of their own when Darren wasn't there. They wanted to leave them, for him to see. Simon, 11, made a colorful pin-wheel design.

Nate, 9, chose realism, and did a bunch of grapes

Image their delight and surprise when Darren found them fishing off the new Goodland Park boat ramp and presented them with two beautiful tiles, polished to glowing and a delightful souvenir of their visit.

Fish for dinner and a beautiful tile. They were delighted.
Darren uses concrete in a variety of ways including benches, jewelry, bookends and vases. con in and check it out when you're on Marco. He'll soon be teaching a workshop class at the Art League of Marco, and you can make your own.
