August – September Competition Judge
Elaine Adams combines her life-long passion for the arts and her extensive background in art history, research, and writing, along with her experience in executive administration and finance, to provide a unique and personal approach to serving artists and gallery clients. As the wife of American artist Peter Adams, she is actively involved in various capacities in the arts industry, particularly in the contemporary-traditional fine art scene, and is recognized as one of the country’s most dynamic and influential forces in the growing shift away from conceptual art and back to representational, figurative formats. In 2003 she founded American Legacy Fine Arts, a private art gallery specializing in curated selections of contemporary-traditional and historic works of original art. The gallery offers quality personal service to new and established art collectors from around the world.
