Time for fun

Mark Brown makes fun, one-of-a-kind mixed media sculptures and clocks from his backyard studio in Easthampton, Massachusetts. Trained as a painter, he has worked on canvas for 25 years, and his interest in color, pattern and figurative imagery can be seen in this current body of three-dimensional work. Each of his pieces is a unique, stylized and engaging character.

Mark recycles everyday objects and elevates them to the level of fine art. Individually handcrafted from kitchen utencils, beads, game pieces, old tins and jar lids, his functional pieces measure time with graceful whimsy.

His clocks run on one "AA" battery (included) and are free standing. Similar clock sculptures have been featured in a The Fuller Museum and publications such as Yankee Magazine and Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion.

We always have 3-5 sculptures to choose from. The wall clocks range from $175-$225 and the freestanding pieces are $325-$450. Contact Gallery Fifty for more information: 231-932-0775.
