The Worcester County Arts Council is pleased to announce the opening of the new exhibit featuring acrylic paintings by local artist, Jim Adcock.
Originally from Baltimore, Jim lived in the beach area for more than 30 years.
“I am constantly inspired by the beauty that surrounds us. Not only the water scenes and the rural settings, but ordinary subjects that define the culture.”
In his paintings, Jim applies his own techniques of color, light and design to a variety of subjects. The basics are always the same; the subject matter changes. Jim works primarily in acrylic which allows him to paint in layers, creating more color complexity in the work.
Jim Adcock resides in Ocean Pines with his wife, Edie. In addition to being a painter, he is also a cartoonist and a graphic designer. In July he will move his Studio from Snow Hill to the Chamber of Commerce building in Berlin.
Jim is a member of the Arts Council Co-Op Gallery Artist and serves as a Board Member of the Arts Council’s Board of Directors.
A silent auction of acrylic painting – “Kruller”, generously donated by Jim (value of $300) will be held in July at the WCAC Gallery. The winning bid will be announced on August 2. The proceeds from the auction will benefit various programs of the Arts Council.
The opening reception of the exhibit, which is free and open to the public, will be on Friday, July 8, from 5-8 p.m., at the Arts Council’s Gallery located on 6 Jefferson Street in Berlin, MD. The exhibit will be on display through July 30th.
Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, and on some Saturdays, 11 am to 3 pm. For additional information, call 410-641-0809.
