“What’s to say about years of art making?” Artist Suzanne Adams pondered that question for the retrospective that highlights her over 40-year career. She began making sculpture in 1973. “My earliest works were concerned with the connections between animals and humans,” Adams said. “In the ‘80s, I concentrated on works which directed attention to our human need for nurturing.” The next decade bought “pieces that directly and profoundly exposed the beauty and vulnerability of young children.” Abstraction is the name of the game for the 2000s. “These works use the chair as metaphor in order to reveal the irony that we both need and reject comfort in our lives. We’d like to rest but can’t if we want to participate in life. You must rest but something in each sculpture resists.” The closing reception is Friday, March 30 from 5-9 p.m. The reception includes an audience participation improv workshop by Amanda Rountree at 7 p.m.
