<thumb_MurrayAdams_2_blind_mans_bluffOhio-based fiber artist Clare Murray Adams' exhibit will be on display at the Joan Derryberry Art Gallery Oct. 4 through Oct. 29, with a reception scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 28. >

Adams is professor of visual art at Malone University in Canton, Ohio, where she teaches fiber art, printmaking and 3D design. She is also curator of exhibits for the university.

Throughout the past 10 years, Adams has worked with clothing imagery – most often the dress – as the reference point for addressing gender and family issues, personal growth and the emotional qualities associated with these concepts.

"She was chosen based on quality and type of medium," said Janis Nunnally, coordinator for the Joan Derryberry Art Gallery. "We always look for a variety of media for our seasons."

Adams is an Ohio native, who has artwork on display throughout the United States, Canada, the Netherlands and Japan. She began her art career by making art quilts and then moved into using different types of media in one art-piece.

This is a Center Stage event supported by TTU's General Education Fund. Center Stage events are selected to enhance student understanding and engagement with the fine arts and world cultures.

The Joan Derryberry Art Gallery is located on the first floor of the Roaden University Center and is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
