Clyde Henry is a multi-media artist who works on paper, ceramic, wood, music, and textile. His work has been exhibited at a number of Philadelphia-area venues and galleries, including an exhibition at Haverford College. With a distinctive mark-making process that revolves around the figure (particularly images of his family), Clyde skillfully translates his artistic energy to any material he works with. He has recently developed a passion for loom weaving, working at Ready to Hand studio in South Philadelphia. Clyde has worked at Center for Creative Works for over five years.
