Thursday Featured Artists: Neil Adamson, PAA and William Wray
Florida artist Neil Adamson, PAA, is a member of the PaintAmerica Signature Society (PAA). His work has been chosen in four of the last six PaintAmerica competitions. In the 2009 PaintAmerica show, he had an amazing three pieces in the Top100 and three pieces in the Mini Top50. Found in prominent corporate offices, Neil’s paintings are in private collections in Saudi Arabia, Canada, England, Switzerland, Puerto Rico and throughout the United States. "Soaring the Canyon," ($950) "River Garden" ($950) and "Everglades Sanctuary" ($1,500) were juried into the this year's PaintAmerica Top100. "Egrets/Everglades," ($475) "Sandhill Crane" ($425) and "Marsh Resident" ($450) were his mini paintings. Still painting into his 70's, Neil's work just keeps getting better and better.
William Wray may be mostly known for his painting style on the Ren and Stimpy Show, his monthly strip in Mad Magazine and his collaborations with Mike Mignola on Hellboy Jr. But now he is concentrating on his fine art. Wray has developed a wonderful painting style, capturing the nostalgic feel of the early 2Oth century’s art and architecture. In "The Choice," ($3,000) Wray has added an urban feel to this style that jurors felt warranted his inclusion in the 2009 PaintAmerica Top100. Wray's work has been featured in Southwest Art, American Art Collector and The Artist magazines. This was Wray's first appearance in a PaintAmerica show - and we hope to see many more.
