Tusculum College student Tylan Adams will be featured in a solo art show beginning on Thursday, September 2, at the Mason House Gallery located in the General Morgan Inn in Downtown Greeneville.
Adams, a senior graphic design major from Greeneville, will be at the Mason Gallery on Thursday from 5-7 p.m. for a “Meet the Artist” opening event.
The show will consist of an eclectic collection of her undergraduate works. Adams will display several drawings in charcoal and pastel, oil paintings and graphic design projects completed during her study at Tusculum College.
Adams frequently uses abstraction and often zooms in on the subject matter. She has a very controlled style with clean and precise attention to small details.
“No matter how much I get to know my own style, I never know how a finished piece is going to turn out,” says Adams. “Comparing a finished piece to its model is most rewarding. They never look the same, and the art is usually substantially more interesting. If I could learn to automatically foresee the way I draw, the world would be exceedingly entertaining.”
Adams was this year’s recipient of the Greeneville Arts Council’s Mary Jane Coleman scholarship.
Opening night is free to the public, and everyone is encouraged to attend. The art will remain on display throughout the month of September. For further information about this or other Mason House Gallery exhibits, please contact Matilda Green at 423-636-7300.
