ARTS IN CANYON COUNTRY

The Feminine Figure: Strength, Resilience, and Insights
On display through February 8, 2019
FREE
Canyon Country Jo Anne Darcy Library
18601 Soledad Canyon Rd.
Santa Clarita, CA 91351
“This exhibit is full of images that are quite personal and serve as a reflection and reminder of my own strength and resilience,” said artist Kim Adam. “The process of creating many of these works of art this year, and curating the remainder from my past works, have provided me with renewed insights into the woman I am today and perhaps the woman I want to be tomorrow. The images found in this exhibit focus on the feminine figure’s strength and beauty. I find it ironic that far too many women forget their own strengths. Too often we listen to that limiting voice within our own heads, and believe false societal labels that objectify and stereotype our gender.”

A self-taught multimedia artist and educator who recently relocated to Boulder, Colorado from Santa Clarita, Adam has been using her artistic talents for the past 25 years as a therapeutic tool. Her art and its process assist her in staying grounded and working through the issues life can spring on us from time to time. During the last 10 years, Adam has been sharing her gift with others, educating them on how they too can use art therapeutically and sharing her message with through her works. Her art has been displayed at exhibits in the greater Los Angeles area and purchased by collectors on both the east and west coasts. Adam believes that art allows us to discover truths about ourselves and is capable of transforming an individual and a community.
