We thought we’d share some humbling news with you. Our gallery director, Elaine Adams, and her husband/artist, Peter Adams, were recently honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award for their contributions to the art world at the Third Annual Plein Air Convention. Elaine also gave a presentation titled “Making Art History: What Makes an Artist Historically Relevant,” which was well-received by the more than 700 attendees.
