About the artists:
Elizabeth McAdams studied fine art at Mary Washington College of the University of Virginia and Advertising Design at Central Piedmont Community College, Charlotte N.C. She is a long-time member of The National Association of Photoshop Professionals, a member of The Vintage Photography Guild of North Carolina, and The Carolina Artists. She is a member of the Rail Walk Studios and Studios & Gallery.
Her works have been shown at Rail Walk Studios & Gallery, The Cauble Creek Vineyard Photography Invitational, The Carolina Artists Art Expo, and The Carolina Artists Photography Expo, (Salisbury, NC), The Southern Arts Society (Kings Mountain, NC) and as the featured artist in The Vintage Photography Guild of North Carolina 22nd Annual Exhibit (Stanly County).
“After living in many different locations I have learned the importance of sense of place and that is what I strive to capture. It is said that photographs don’t lie. Photographs can and do lie, usually a lie of omission, as the human eye sees far more than a camera records. The challenge is to show even what the camera missed.”
Lori is Elizabeth’s daughter. She is an artist and illustrator working and living in the Charlotte, North Carolina region. Her educational background includes a BFA from Parsons School of Design, and a masters (MA) from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
She is a member of The Charlotte Art League (Charlotte, NC) and the Southern Arts Society (Kings Mountain, NC).
Her work has been exhibited at the Charlotte Art League Gallery, Kings Mountain Art Center in Kings Mountain, NC, Arts on Main in Gastonia, and the Jeanne Rauch Gallery at Gaston College in Dallas, NC.
“For years people have suggested that my mother and I have a show together. We both enjoy working with black and white images. This exhibit shows our shared interest in historical subjects and the stories behind them.”
Regular Gallery hours are 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Thursday-Saturday
