Review by R. Edwards


I recently had the decided good fortune to view Clay Kanzler’s “Mary and Jesus” exhibit at the new and warmly received RCK Gallery in Stuart.  I realized upon entering that there was a palpable atmosphere of contemplation in every corner of the gallery. I noticed a very still and quiet observer with wet eyes on the verge of release…with good reason. I sensed I would be joining her soon, and indeed I did.


There are a multitude of layers in every piece of art that Clay gives to the world. His works are traditionally large format because the heart rendered emotions that appear on the canvas are mined from an infinite vein. Clay uses his art to help him understand the trials, traumas, and tragedy that cross his path. He does so unselfishly and without limitations. He does so with the unexpressed desire to heal and to bring hope and healing to others. The energy and experiences he shares in his art are complex and compelling, and you should be prepared to be moved. You can also safely prepare yourself to be healed because hope for tomorrow is the most resounding message that radiates from Clay’s work.


Taking this show in on Easter weekend felt about the same as flying first-class. The journey is the same, but the experience was heightened. Please understand that your personal beliefs will no way mitigate the power of the moment.  This show is compact with a significant impact.  Exactly the way it was destined to be.
