Humble Beginnings, a retrospective exhibit by Matthew Clark

Sequential Art Gallery presents MATTHEW CLARK’S HUMBLE BEGINNINGS, a retrospective exhibit featuring a large selection of his earliest work in the comic book industry, and will be Clark’s seventh show with Sequential Art. The exhibit opens this Thursday, April 2nd, with the artist’s reception from 6pm to 10pm.


HUMBLE BEGINNINGS partially chronicles Clark’s path through the comic book industry since he started working as a professional artist in 1999. The collection includes original comic pages from DC, Marvel, and Image, and features widely recognized icons to indie characters with cult followings. Clark had recently rediscovered much of his earlier pages, and felt compelled to exhibit his evolution as an artist as he is preparing to launch a variety of new projects, including a Batman: Arkham Knights comic tie-in.

Clark is a native Oregonian, based in Portland since moving here from Eugene almost 20 years ago. He is a self-taught artist, always striving to evolve by adapting his style to better suit the stories he illustrates. He presently lives in the Everett Station Lofts, where he spends the bulk of his time drawing, catching up on podcasts, and taking Mass Effect breaks. You can see more of his work online at

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS will be on display throughout the month of April, with gallery hours on Mondays from 2pm-6pm, Saturdays from 11am-5pm, and by appointment. The exhibit will close at the end of business on Monday, April 27th.
