Artists Seen: Charles Clough

by / Sep. 7, 2016 12am EST

Charles Clough is a visual artist who was born in Buffalo. After attending Pratt Institute in Brooklyn (1969-1970) and the Ontario College of Art in Toronto (1971-1972), he returned to Buffalo, where in 1973 he became one of the co-founders of a new artist-run gallery, Hallwalls. The organization and the young artists behind it soon attracted international attention, and Clough moved to New York City in 1978 to pursue his own career as a painter. In subsequent decades his work has been shown in more than 60 solo and 150 group exhibitions internationally and has been included in the permanent collections of more than 70 museums. He currently maintains studios in Buffalo and East Aurora. For more information on Charles Clough, visit and
