“Three Billion” is a group show of art curated by Brickworks Gallery owner and artist, Laura W. Adams at the Hudgens Center for the Arts. In this show, Adams has curated a group of ten artists from the Atlanta region and beyond whose work focuses on environmental themes and wildlife declines. In this monthly meeting, Adams will take us on a virtual tour of the exhibit and speak with some of the artists whose work will be on display. The name “Three Billion” refers to the recent report published in Science
magazine on the loss of some three billion of our North American birds in the last 50 years. The artists in this show have come together to display art that speaks to this horrifying loss, its causes and its solutions, as well as to the beauty and awesomeness of birds and their environments. The artists hope to bring more awareness of this unfolding tragedy and its potential solutions, through the medium of art. The show opens on February 6, 2021 and runs through April 24, 2021. The Hudgens Center for the Arts is located in Duluth in the Infinity Energy Center complex. About the Presenter:
Laura W. Adams is a collage artist whose work depicts the forests, wildlife and wildflowers of the world. She concentrates her subject matter on the flora and fauna and birds that live in areas around her. An avid birder and hiker, Adams’ work brings the viewer into the emotional and spiritual connection she feels in the presence of nature. The source material Adams uses for her collages include found items from nature, textured papers, painted papers and exotic patterned papers 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. Adams has shown her work in galleries and juried exhibitions throughout the United States. Her pieces are owned in a number of corporate collections as well as private collections around the world.
