A native Charlestonian, Chevis Clark paints his coastland home with both affection and feeling. After serving in the Navy, he completed his art training at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. Returning to Charleston, he continued to expand the range of his artistic talents and began teaching at the Gibbes Art Gallery School. In 1969, he was selected for the Navy Combat Art Program under whose auspices he completed "Replenishment at Sea," which is now part of the Navy Combat Art Collection in Washington, D.C. His works are represented in many private and public collections and he was won many awards including first, second and third prize awards in the Carolina Art Association and the Guild of South Carolina Artists state exhibitions.
