Viewers will experience the powerful and dynamic touch of the artist in her presentations of people in their natural, day-to-day moments. Her artistic inspiration is the human form, and the figure in environments, in communities and the self. Her process involves expressive mark-making through the integration of drawing and painting and the search for just the right note.

Jayne Adams has been the recipient of three Currier Gallery of Art Awards from the NH Art Association and the Currier Museum. She has also received the Lacroix Award for painting, the Holland Sister’s Award and others.
