Northwest artist, Victoria Adams, will give a slide presentation on the creative process she uses to paint her signature landscapes of skies, quiet waters and landforms viewed under the unifying effect of slanting light. She has always been in love with the landscape, whether it's the actual, real world or the painted, virtual landscape. She aims to depict land and sky as symbolic spaces whose vastness hold a mysterious resonance. "The views I paint are conjured from my imagination. They exhibit not the realism of photographs, but rather a distilled and con-centrated version of reality. My inspiration ranges from fragments of actual photo-graphed scenes to memories and day-dreams, all filtered through the influence of the historical landscape tradition."
Since 1984, Victoria has had solo exhibits at the Tacoma Art Museum, Maryhill Museum of Art, the Museum of Northwest Art and the Seattle galleries of Woodside/Braseth, Winston Wachter, Grover/Thurston and Lisa Harris. Articles about her work have appeared in American Art Collector, The New York Times and The Seattle Times, among others. Her work is part of corporate collections in Peru, India and throughout the United States.
