Marion Adams: Wild
Nanu Lindgren LaRosee: Someone to Watch Over Me

Exhibition Dates: September 1 – 28, 2019
Gallery Hop: Friday, September 6, 7 - 10 pm
Artists Reception: Sunday, September 8, 2 - 4 pm

“Wild” by Marion Adams has both two and three-dimensional artwork representing animals of African and far-eastern regions. The artist’s intent is to bring attention to the decline of the world’s biodiversity and natural habitats. Although whimsical in appearance, the majority of the wild animals portrayed in the exhibit are on the endangered list. She has chosen re-purposed items for her sculptures.

Marion Adams has had a 30 year career teaching Science, Math and Art. She holds a Masters Degree from Georgia State University and under-graduate degrees in education and art.

Nanu Lindgren LaRosee is presenting mixed media paintings that are her visual response to the idea of “Someone to Watch Over Me”,and the mixed meanings that phrase has in our current lives. We are all under constant surveillance by phones, computers, cars, security cameras, fitbits, work badges--an army of everyday things silently taking note of what we are doing and tracking our movements, providing an unseen, unnamed entity access to our lives. LaRosee explores these unnerving ideas in a lighter, sometimes humorous way. Even when you have nothing to hide it never feels benevolent to be spied on. And yet, we are complicit in our own surveillance.

Nanu Lindgren LaRosee has a BFA in Painting from Washington University in St. Louis and has been a member of Artworks Gallery since 1991.
