October 4, 2001

[ Adams Artwork Photograph ]DELAWARE, OHIO -- Ohio Wesleyan's 2001-2002 Distinguished Alumna Exhibitor Christine Daugherty Adams '74 has always had a fascination with discarded -- found -- objects of all kinds. On display from Oct. 5 - Nov. 5 at OWU is an exhibition of Adams' wall-mounted and free-standing assemblages entitled Discarded, Reclaimed, Retained, mounted in The Werner Student Art Gallery in Edgar Art Hall and Gallery 2001 in Beeghly Library on OWU's campus.

Adams will present a talk entitled "I'm a Tiger Lily Not a Shrinking Violet" on Wednesday, Oct. 3 at 3:10 p.m., in the Bayley Room of Beeghly Library, as part of her several day visit to OWU. The mounting of the exhibit and the appearance of the artist at OWU is made possible with support of The Marion Parson Alden Endowed Fund for Visiting Artists; The Molly LaRue Project/Program Fund; The University Relations Office; and The Woltemade Center for Economics, Business, and Entrepreneurship. Her lecture is sponsored by Ohio Wesleyan's Fine Arts Department and The Woltemade Center. Also scheduled during the week is an illustrated talk by Adams about her work and the creative process, on Friday, Oct. 5 at 2:15 p.m. in Edgar Art Hall.

A co-owner of a cooperative art gallery in Vero Beach, Florida called Tiger Lily Gallery, Adams says the materials she finds for her art have a rich history. "I like to think about their former life before man or nature had discarded them. My job becomes uncovering or enhancing the beauty that already is there."
