The Illustrated Line – works by Lori McAdams

January 21 – February 28, 2020

Please join us for the reception January 25, 6-8 pm

Lori McAdams is an artist and illustrator whose interest in antique items – vintage hats and old buildings – is often reflected in her art. Using fine lines and a great sense of depth, Lori’s sharp attention for detail brings the past into the present. She works in scratchboard, watercolor, colored pencil and acrylic. With scratchboard, which is traditionally black and white, Lori often adds color to bring out the details in her work. Even when she works from present day inspirations, the graphic quality of her works lends an old world feel to them.

Her work has been exhibited in these North Carolina Galleries:
The Charlotte Art League Gallery in Charlotte; The Reavis and Founders Galleries in Southern Arts Society in Kings Mountain; Arts on Main in Gastonia; the Jeanne Rauch Gallery at Gaston College in Dallas; and the Railwalk Studios and Gallery in Salisbury. Lori graduated from Parsons School of Design (BFA), and MA UNC Charlotte (MA).

Siemens Corporation purchased Power On, a scratchboard piece exhibited in The Power of Innovation: Art Inside the New Energy Age (2011) presented by the Charlotte Art League.

Her illustrations have included book covers targeted for YA, SciFi-Fan, and sales motivation. Other illustrations have been for commercial advertising and non-profit event promotions.
