Check out this historic museum

Located ten minutes away from Summit Lodge, in the quaint town of East Glacier Park, is the
Clarke art gallery. Now a third-generation business, the summer-only shop showcases artwork by
John Clarke, alongside that of other artists of regional acclaim.
Referred to by his granddaughter as “the best loved artist you’ve never heard of,” John Louis
Clarke spoke through his exquisite carvings of Montana’s wildlife. Born in 1881, his original
rustic studio/home was on the site of the current Clarke Gallery. There, John spent his days
carving the wildlife images he loved, specializing in mountain goats and grizzly bears.
A third-generation Montanan, his father, Horace, was the first settler in what was then called
Midvale. John was never able to speak or hear, due to damage from scarlet fever at age two. In
his silent world, he was drawn to art, and became practiced in watercolor, oil, pastel and charcoal
drawings, while always most adept and best known for his intricate wood carvings of Glacier
Park’s wildlife.
In 1977, his daughter, Joyce, opened the gallery, selling bronzes of the original carvings, limited
edition prints of his paintings, plus note and postcards of his work. After Joyce’s death in 2013,
The Clarke Gallery continues through her daughter, Dana.
Other well-known artists featured include Mark Ogle, Terrance Guardipee, Allen Jimmerson,
Tisch Bialczak, David Dragonfly and Mimi Grant. Many jewelry artisans are displayed, and
original artwork is shown alongside prints, books, notecards, sculpture and pottery.
