About the Show

CLARE ADAMS Solo Show - Painting with Light


Canal Street Art Gallery presents: CLARE ADAMS Painting With Light, open September 8th, on view to the public through October 9th. This is the first show in Canal Street Art Gallery’s new Fall lineup of Solo Shows! Join us on 3rd Friday Gallery Night from 5-7PM and LIVE at 6PM on September 17th to celebrate in our Outdoor Art Tent and in the Gallery. Meet the artist and watch the live Artist Talk at 6PM.


CLARE ADAMS Painting With Light is a Solo Show of the artist’s most recent work. Adams uses the traditional techniques of reverse painting, enameling, and staining glass to depict a detailed view of the cycle of natural life on the farm and in the garden. Painted and stained entirely by the artist, artworks such as “Sunflower and Crickets” and “Dalias & Bees” use traditional materials and methods like silver stain, and the grisaille technique in which black paint is scratched away and color is applied on top. Starting with recycled window glass, this process requires numerous firings in Adam’s solar powered kiln, and uses modern, nontoxic enamel formulas. Each artwork is composed of many of these hand painted and stained pieces of glass soldered together in patterns inspired by quilts and are beautiful on a wall or in a window.


“I have always been interested in light and color, and glass painting adds an extra and exciting dimension both visually and technically. This new work has been satisfying to me as it combines my interests in painting, glass, color, craft, light and the natural world. My patterns have been inspired by American quilts. I have been looking at traditional styles as well as the stunning asymmetrical styles of, specifically, African American quilts. To me each piece feels like a prayer. An earth prayer collecting light energy for healing and renewal!” - Clare Adams


Clare Adams, based in the village of Cambridgeport, Vermont, is one of Canal Street Art Gallery’s original Represented Artists. Adams’ current work in glass is informed by her career as a painter and printmaker. First arriving in Vermont as an assistant in the glass studio of Robert DuGrenier, Adams continues to present an evolving and experimental practice using old world methods and lost art techniques along with modern materials. Adams has studied at the Corning School of Glass in NY, and with domestic and foreign masters of the techniques of reverse painting and enameling glass. 


Canal Street Art Gallery is located at 23 Canal Street in the Historic Downtown Village of Bellows Falls, Vermont, and is open Wednesday to Saturday from 11:00am to 5:00pm. Explore the CLARE ADAMS Painting With Light show in person Wed~Sat 11-5: parties of 3 at a time, please.
