About

Pat Adams NA (July 8, 1928 in Stockton, California - ) is an American painter and printmaker. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California, Berkeley in 1949 after which she took courses at the California College of Arts and Crafts, University of the Pacific and the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1950 she moved to New York City and enrolled in the art program at the Brooklyn Museum where she studied under Max Beckmann, John Ferren and Reuben Tam. In 1956 she won a Fulbright Scholarship to study in France, where she traveled with her husband, Vincent Longo, who is also a painter and printmaker. From 1971 to 1995 Adams taught at the Yale School of Art, and in 1995 she won the Vermont Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts. Her style, a mixture of modernism and abstraction, is described by Adams as yielding more to qualities than ideas, more to matter than its naming Adams’s first solo exhibition was in 1954 at the Korman Gallery, later renamed the Zabriskie Gallery, under the ownership of Virginia Zabriskie. She is now exclusively represented by Zabriskie Gallery. Adams has had many solo exhibitions at various other venues including the Fleming Museum at the University of Vermont, Burlington (1977) and the Rutgers University Art Gallery in New Brunswick, New Jersey (1978). In 1993 she was made a member of the National Academy of Design. In 1994, she exhibited at Dartmouth College’s Art Gallery. In 1960, Dore Ashton asserted that Pat Adams’s works detail her visual experiences of nature and her spiritual insights about the cosmos. Ashton places Adams in the same category as artists like Odilon Redon and Mark Tobey, in that they each seek to find what is 'within' the inmost secrets of the universe. Hilton Kramer further noted that Adams has a mystical temperament and is extraordinarily inventive in conjuring up a world of delicate perceptions and inward feelings. Kramer also notes that her paintings fill the eye with an almost hypnotic bath of completely delightful visual detail. A 50th anniversary exhibition of her first show at Zabriskie and the start of her relationship with dealer Virginia Zabriskie was held 2005. Pat Adams’s work has been well-received, and she’s even been called one of the most important abstract painters working today.
