forces that shape the lives of women.
The Sentimental Circus: Adam Palmer
In the FWA satellite gallery, Adam Palmer will show a series of abstract
installations and drawings that are vibrant with fine lines of intentional
color titled, The Sentimental Circus. Growing up in the 80's in the small west
Texas town of Monahans, Palmer used MTV, Nickelodeon and HBO as a form of
escapism. These sources provide an aesthetic that he tries to portray in his
work. In his latest body of work “The Sentimental Circus” Palmer has tried to
capture certain periods in his life using the shapes, symbols and colors of that time.
These exhibitions open March 21, 2018 and run through May 5, 2018.
Please join us for the Spring Gallery Night Reception on Saturday,
March 24, 2018 from 12 pm until 9 pm.
