Pat Adams (born 8 July 1928) is an American painter whose work is described as modernist and abstract. She was a student of Max Beckmann,[3] and an early supporter of the Zabriskie Gallery.[4]

Biography

Adams is from Stockton, California and studied at the University of California, Berkeley, California College of the Arts, University of the Pacific, and Art Institute of Chicago. In 1950 she enrolled at the Brooklyn Museum Art School in New York City, where she studied with Reuben Tam and Max Beckmann.

Adams held her first solo show in 1954, in what would later become the Zabriskie Gallery.[5]

In 2005, a retrospective exhibition, Pat Adams Paintings: 1954 - 2004, celebrating the 50th anniversary of her first show at New York's Zabriskie Gallery [6] seemed to cement Adams's reputation. The exhibition caused the The New York Sun to call her "one of the most important abstract painters today,"[7] and Ken Johnson of The New York Times remarked on "her long and distinguished career." Adams, according to Johnson, is "a painter who has stayed true to certain idiosyncratic visual and spiritual predilections without straying far from the main highway of Modernist abstraction."[8]
