Colette Wright Adams often uses her observation of a neighborhood to create works of art. Many times nature in the city is represented.
“A neighborhood is not a static, physical location nor only a memory or dream. Its an area encompassed by what touches my senses and has meaning to me. I think at the heart of my art work, over the years, is this simple concept. “
The artist received her BFA from University of Michigan and MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). She is also the founder of the Uptown Arts Center, a program of the Preston Bradley Center.
