The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council [NWMAC] is pleased to announce the opening of the Maggi Adams (formerly of Roseau) exhibit at our gallery in the River Walk Artists gallery and gift shop. Maggi Adams’ fourteen original pieces of art are on loan from the Roseau Area Library.
The work on display is a series of paintings that are found within the children’s book “Iggam’s Dreams”. “Iggam’s Dreams” was created by Roseau Friends of the Library after Maggi passed away in 2002 as a way of bringing together her life’s work. This exhibit is a wonderful show for children or small groups of children since it compliments a book that is about telling stories from your dreams.
Maggi Adams, lived from 1967 – 2002 in Roseau, MN and wrote countless feature stories for the local weekly newspaper. Her husband William Adams, was editor-publisher of the Roseau Times Region until their retirement at the end of 1983. Maggi and Bill were favorites for many readers. She painted from her tower studio while Bill wrote children’s stories to accompany the pictures.
“Iggam’s Dreams” was published in 2003 with grant assistance by the NWMAC. The NWMAC helped to offset the costs of framing the pieces with a grant. Other of Maggi’s work is included in “P is for Pioneer, An ABC Picture Book,” published with the help of grants from NWMAC and the State of Minnesota’s Legacy Amendment.
Maggi Adam’s original artwork, on loan from the Roseau Area Library, may be viewed in the Northwest Minnesota Art Council Gallery (inside River Walk Artists) from August 23 – September 22, 2013. The exhibit will be featured during the Art and Wine Walk on September 21, 2013. The book of 14 paintings and stories, “Iggam’s Dreams” is available for purchase at the River Walk Artists Gallery and Gift Shop. Also for sale will be Roseau Friends of the Library books “Up North” and “P is for Pioneer”.
