Adams’ collages include found items from nature, textured papers, painted papers and exotic patterned papers from many different countries of origin that have been cut up, layered, and adhered with acrylic medium. Often, ten or more layers of material are used to create a single work. The result is a “painting” with a distinct, three-dimensional effect.
“Bobcat and Black-eyed Susans”
The bobcat is a beautiful and elusive resident of the maritime forest. It is a key predator species for helping keep the native deer population in check. Bobcat have been incessantly hunted in the past, and had been extirpated from a number of coastal forests. This beautiful cat blends in seamlessly into a field of native wildflowers - Black-eyed Susans- on the edge of the maritime forest.
Renowned Atlanta Collage Artist, Laura W. Adams, is teaming with Mystic Osprey Gallery in Beaufort to create awareness about our country’s diminishing Maritime Forests, and to raise money for Port Royal Sound Foundation. 15% of proceeds from the show’s art sales will be donated to the foundation.
