Paris ~ Provence ~ California

September 2 – October 8, 2010

Realist painter Michael Lynn Adams will present a collection of 20 still life, genre and landscapes inspired by Southern California light and the beauty of Paris and Provence. This is the first West Coast showing for most of the paintings and the premier showing of more than half.

Adams’ works are in private collections throughout the United States. Maggie Kruger, owner of M Gallery of Fine Art in Sarasota, Fla., noted in American Art Collector Magazine that his work “has a luminous quality; emanating a quiet glow on the gallery wall. Collectors are mesmerized and drawn to each of the works, moving from each jewel-like painting, basking in the reflected light.”

Adams, a 1972 alumnus of CLU, is a member of the International Guild of Realism and associate member of the Oil Painters of America (OPA). His paintings have been juried in and have garnered awards from national and international exhibitions, including Salon International, OPA National and OPA Western Regional shows.

Paintings in the exhibition are available for purchase, and a portion of all sales supports the Kwan Fong Gallery. Admission is free. An artist’s reception will be held Saturday, Sept. 11, at 3 p.m.
