Clayton Singleton

Rebuilding Faith in Myself

Clayton Singleton comes to us from Norfolk, Virginia. His work "is about transition…cycling from one place or phase to another…a continual transition whether physically, spiritually, mentally or emotionally. Mr. Singleton believes that "we are a reflection and a result of each other regardless of our differences. Our arts should explore...creating until our experience has become our expression". To see some of Mr. Singleton's work visit his website at

Celebrating Black History Month with Milton Sears

featured in the Skylight Gallery

The artist was born in 1924 in Los Angeles, CA and educated in the California Public Schools. After graduation, he was drafted into the US Army where he served in World War II until the war ended. After his discharge from the Army, Sears worked as a draftsman designing aircraft parts for Rockwell for a number of years. Sears used his rights offered by the government to further his education in the Fine Arts. His study took him to Paris, France where he studied at the Julian School of Fine Arts for 6 years. Rosa, his wife of 3 years, saw talent in his paintings and encouraged him to showcase and display his work at Art Works.
