Clare Murray Adams
All of her life, Clare Murray Adams had a great interest in sewing and fibers. As a child she was a collector of things and a saver of objects she deemed precious, whether they really were or not. Until recently she was a lifetime resident of Canton, Ohio. In the summer of 2005 she married and moved to Southington, Ohio, where she has a home and a studio.
Clare is Professor of Art and former Chair of the Visual Art Department at Malone University. She received a BFA from Kent State University and an MFA from Vermont College. Over the past 25 years her artwork has been exhibited regionally and nationally in fiber and mixed media exhibits, where she has often taken home honors or awards. During the past two years she has been fortunate to have six one-person Exhibits in Ohio, Indiana, New York, South Carolina, and California.
Earlier work was strongly rooted in quilt-making and surface design. More recent work relies on the processes involved in making 3-D constructions, in collage, and in encaustic painting or working with wax. Her long interest and attraction to fibers is still evident in her work, if not in process, then certainly in concept.
