Marion Adams and James Gemma
August 5 -27, 2016
Meet the Artists at Gallery Hop, Friday, August 5, 7 – 9 pm
Artworks Gallery presents Marion Adams’ “Acrylic and Colored Pencil Works” and James Gemma’s “Abstractions in Shape and Color.”
Marion Adams’ colored pencil and acrylic subjects are people and everyday objects. She uses underpainting and mixed media to show depth of color. Figures are soft and expressive, dancers paired in a romantic pose, a sunbather caught in a foreshortened angle.
Ms. Adams has taught art on the high school and college levels, as well as math and science. She holds a Master’s degree in Art Education from Georgia State University and has received several awards in regional shows.
James Gemma’s original abstract digital prints on paper explore complex relationships among shapes and color, strongly utilizing geometric forms.
After graduate university studies and careers as university professor and consumer research professional, Gemma studied art and printmaking at Salem College and participated in multiple workshops, including at Penland and Huntington Museum of Art. He also served as Marketing Chair of Associated Artists of Winston Salem, bringing internationally known artists to Winston for workshops and public lectures.
The exhibit is free and open to the public.
