Bruce Adams


Bruce Adams is best known as a conceptually based figurative painter who references various, often historical, painting styles. In exploring the act of painting, Adams peels back the layers of meaning inherent in the making and viewing of art. He has exhibited extensively, and his work is included in numerous private and museum collections including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Castellani Museum, UB Anderson Gallery, and Burchfield-Penney Art Center. He has also worked in installation/performance art. Adams considers his true education to be the result of his involvement in the contemporary art community, beginning as director/curator of peopleart/bflo, a small storefront gallery in the 1980s, and with Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center as an Artist Advisory Committee co-founder, long-time board member and board president. Adams is also an award winning art writer. In 2007 Adams was given an extensive mid-career survey exhibition titled “Bruce Adams, Half Life 1980-2006” at the UB Anderson Gallery in Buffalo.
