Caroline Adams 'Departure' Show at Susan Calloway
The opening reception for artist, Caroline Adams is at Susan Calloway Fine Arts Gallery Friday, June 5, 2015 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. the show runs through June 11th.
Caroline Adams develops her paintings through the visual memory of the many places she has traveled. Her hope and intention is that the paintings have a feeling of familiarity to the viewer without pinpointing a specific place. Adams has spent the past three years in Washington, but will be leaving again in August for Germany. No matter her location, it is in the act of painting her ambiguous landscapes that Adams finds a feeling of home.
When I paint, I draw on the memory of every place I have traveled and lived. Sometimes a glimpse of sky in a faraway place. Other times a field that I saw a thousand times as a child. But these paintings are not a travelogue. I hope they are something more universal. I hope that these reflections of my visual experience will bring you, the viewer, to a place you remember, somewhere familiar. As I prepare to depart, my paintings continue to ground me.
Caroline Adams received her BFA in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2001. She spent three years studying and teaching at the Aegean Center for the Fine Arts in Greece. She has shown at numerous galleries worldwide, including Metaxa Gallery in Paros, Greece, Illeana Viteri Gallery in Quito, Ecuador, Artists' House Gallery in Philadelphia, PA, Shelburne Art Center in Vermont, Somerville Manning Gallery and Hardcastle Gallery in Delaware, and, most recently, Susan Calloway Fine Arts in Washington, DC.
