Clark Richert grew up in a family of mathematicians and scientists in Wichita, Kansas. The influence of math and science appears in Richert’s art, which features strong geometric patterns. Richert received a BFA from the University of Kansas in 1963 and an MFA from the University of Colorado (CU) in 1972. In 1965, he was a founder of Drop City, an artist community outside of Trinidad, Colorado. He also was part of the Armory Group in Boulder, formed in 1966 by students and faculty at CU who had studios in the armory building near campus. Members of the group included Colorado artists Dale Chisman, John DeAndrea, George Woodman and Margaret Neumann. Richert teaches at the Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design in Denver, Colorado and exhibits widely throughout the United States. His work is included in the collections of the Smithsoniam American Art Museum, Nelson-Atkins Museum, Wichita Art Museum and Denver Art Museum, among others.
