Beauty and Love

Works by Ashley Adams

Exhibition Dates: January 5 - February 2, 2018

Location: The Southern Theater

Summary:

"With Beauty and Love I am trying to show the inner beauty of these women. Some of which have been my friends for dozens of years, others only months. I am very empathetic and can feel who a person is in a very short frame of time. On its surface it seems impossible, to look at a static image, yet see a person’s inner beauty. I want the viewer to know that they have this beautiful power to love. Not only their partner or children, but the whole tribe. The tribe of humanity. All human beings. This is the only planet we've got, and we have to all get along and love each other, or earth may shrug its shoulders and we'll all be gone. It's time to love, not fight. I hope my drawings can help people see we are filled and capable of loving each other."

-Ashley Adams

Summary:

This exhibit is a collection of works that center around the artist's body. These paintings take specific moments of interaction with the naked body, and ask the viewer to react and reflect on the flesh presented to them.
