Lauren F. Adams: Here be Monsters
Opening reception January 11, 2012 Friday 7 – 11pm

Here be Monsters brings together works from 2009 - 2012 that center on the pre-colonial period in America and the relationships between the colonizers, the natives, and the natural landscape. Adams’ studio sources include archival imagery such as paintings of Queen Elizabeth I and stylized watercolors of Algonquins on the coast of North Carolina in the 16th century. Lauren Adams’ artwork is an investigation in the fashion, figures, and propaganda of early American settlement, reviving archaic forms in an effort to make sense of America’s collective past.
