Vernissage - August 9, 6 - 9pm 

"Form/Space Atelier anticipates Carol Adelman's first solo exhibition at Form/Space Atelier for August-September 2013 Program. Mysterious renderings of the figure, once-removed using dolls as artists models, or fast-forwarded to intense scrutiny through self portraiture, Adelman layers impasto and light deftly, breathlessly, honestly."      –  Paul Pauper

"Getting a likeness is a skill that, if one is dedicated, may be acquired, but giving that face character and an expressive presence, is the tough part. Whether or not these faces are portraits, they all have character and considerable expressive presence, and that's the point."
Norman Lundin, Director
