Member Feature

Bill Gillquist

Our members matter! Each quarter, we’ll feature one member’s story about their love of the Clark.  
His passion for art
Bill first visited the Clark in 1987 with a close friend and quickly became an enthusiast of the arts. Shortly afterwards, Bill enrolled in art classes at his local community college and has since been traveling the two-hour commute from his home in Brookfield, Connecticut to visit the Clark “at least twenty-five times a year.” He especially enjoys finding the deeper meanings that art has to offer. “I think art can teach us to respect and even admire works from different cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds.”
His favorite painting
Winslow Homer’s Sleigh Ride, which resides in the permanent collection, is a painting Bill likes to revisit often to discover a new detail or emotion elicited by the work. “It’s a winter scene that evokes a story of a warm cup of cocoa by the fire after the sleigh reaches its destination,” he explains. “It’s not a depressing image; rather, it is a confident one.”
What he loves about the Clark
Bill has been a member for almost a decade. Aside from the beautiful paintings and extensive landscape and trails, among his favorite things at the Clark are the educational opportunities and public programs such as performances and concerts, which he often enjoys with friends. When asked if he is as dedicated to other museums as he is to the Clark, Bill revealed his loyalty. “At the Clark, I feel like I’m a part of something that not only helps people locally, but also inspires people worldwide.”
