Pat Adams from Brattleboro Reformer

Adams taught art at Bennington College from 1964-1993. For over six decades, her art has been championed by museums, collectors, and art critics alike. From her artist profile on the Alexandre Gallery in New York: 

"While Adams’ paintings often have an immediate impact on the viewer, their greatest strength lies in their power to draw focus and keep viewers visually, mentally, and emotionally engaged over long periods of looking, thinking, and feeling."

In her interview with the Vermont News & Media, Adams discusses her motivation to create, her artistic process, and what she hopes people can take away from art today.
