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.
These gregarious and brightly colored corvids are one of the most numerous birds in North America, but have lost one third of their population in the last 50 years primarily due to habitat loss. Red-winged Blackbirds love to congregate near wetlands and marshes on the edge of the maritime forest. This grouping of two colorful males and one female call out to the rest of their flock over the marsh at sunset.
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.
