Marty Whaley Adams “Canine and Feline Companions”

 Marty Whaley Adams


November 6 – November 28, 2015

Artist reception: Friday, November 6, 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.

With Mrs. Whaley’s “Cocktail Snacks”

Marty Whaley Adams has clearly had a creative Renaissance.

Marty’s new series of paintings continue her tradition of creating works of art that are strong and demonstrative, while at the same time romantic. Many of the new paintings merge art and craft, a reflection of the more natural, unpretentious world we live in today. Her canine and feline subjects are always noble; now they are iconic.

“Many years ago, I took classes in Atlanta at The Finishing Source, a school that specializes in decorative painting. My teacher, Caroline Woldenberg taught me how to decorate the walls of my own home. With this series of paintings I have married craft with my fine art. The paintings for this upcoming show will have gold and silver leafing, stenciling, plaster effects, and anything that will add texture and interest.” Quote Marty Whaley Adams
