WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Nearly one year after it completed a $145 million expansion and renovation, the Clark has the blessings of the Clarks.   Javotte Ray, the granddaughter of Sterling and Francine Clark, on Sunday visited the art museum they founded to help the Clark Art Institute celebrate its 60th anniversary.   Sixty years ago to the day, the Clarks welcomed the world to a white marble building on South Street that the couple built to house its private collection.   Six decades later, that white building is just as impressive and the paintings are just as memorable, but little else would be recognizable to Ray's grandparents.   On Sunday, she stood with
