The Return of the Harbinger
The Artwork of Clinton Deckert

Opening Reception: Saturday October 3, 2015, 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.
with guitarist extraordinaire Steve Rutledge 

Clinton Deckert is an award winning contemporary 
artist who is also an advocate of the arts by serving as Curator 
& Juror in regional art events. Deckert's artwork demands 
your attention by using multiple layers of intense, yet 
harmoniously balanced color in tandem with various 
techniques that bridge the gap of imaginary worlds that
he portrays in each of his works.

His artwork was selected for inclusion into the 
Societé Nationale Des Beaux Arts international exhibition
at Carrousel Du Lovre, Paris, France. Deckert’s work has 
appeared twice in the New York Times, he has also 
exhibited throughout New York in Chelsea, SoHo, 
Williamsburg and Woodstock. He has several artworks 
represented in the acclaimed Jack & Susan Warner Collection
of American Art. He is represented by Dorothy’s Gallery in 
Paris, France, and also locally in Connecticut by 
Paris in Plantsville where he also serves on their Advisory Board.

Deckert looks forward to a solo show in the 
New Britain Museum of American Art’s New/Now 2016 program.
