Clarence Towers

Black on Point and The Shipyard Trust for the Arts would like to extend our condolences to the family of Clarence Towers, who died on Jan 2nd 2021 from COVID-19. Clarence made his home at the Shipyard for over 30 years. A photographer, he worked with the Union Bank of California, DuPont, Levi's, AT&T, and the City of San Francisco, among many others. His work was exhibited internationally from New York to Japan, showcasing his landscapes and his shots of architecture. He spent his later years photographing cowboys/cowgirls of color and large format abstract landscapes of the west with black and white film.

Black On Point, a professional artist group, is an organization dedicated to support promote and educate African American artists working and creating at San Francisco's Shipyard Artist Community.
