“Cooper,” An Exhibit by sculptor Jamie Adams

The Alabama School of the Arts at University of Mobile is hosting the work of artist Jamie Adams in an exhibit called “Cooper.” This exhibit will be on display Aug. 21-Sept. 29 in the Marilyn Foley Art Gallery. An Art Talk will be held with Adams on Sept. 28 at 11 a.m. with a reception following. Both the exhibit and Art Talk are free and open to the public. The Donald Gallery is open Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is located in Martin Hall on campus at University of Mobile, 5735 College Pkwy. Adams is a sculptor and potter whose artistic process derives from a childhood spent in a profoundly religious family in the Deep South. His art is characterized by vibrant colors, allusions to art history and pop culture, and an insistent use of new technologies in his work. “This body of work is inspired by the untimely passing of my brother in 2001.” explained Adams. “We first met when I was 12, and this work is both an exploration of my rumination on our unshared childhood, as well as imaginings of the man he might have been.” For information about the show or visual art programs at University of Mobile, contact Phillip Counselman, associate professor of art, at pcounselman@umobile.edu or 251.442.2283.
