WILLIAMSTOWN, MA—The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute welcomes artist, writer, and naturalist James Prosek for a free lecture on Sunday, September 1, at 3 pm. Prosek discusses his work as an artist in the context of Audubon, Winslow Homer, and the American natural experience.

Knopf, 1996), which features 70 of his watercolor paintings of the trout of North America.In 2004, Prosek co-founded a conservation initiative, World Trout, with Yvon Chouinard, owner of Patagonia clothing company, which raises money for coldwater habitat conservation through the sale of T-shirts featuring trout paintings. His book “Eels: An Exploration, from New Zealand to the Sargasso of the World’s Most Amazing and Mysterious Fish,” published in September 2010, was a New York Times Book Review editor’s choice and was the subject of a documentary for the PBS series “Nature” that aired in April 2013.
