Profile: Dorothy (d.hunter) Adams

"Paint something you love" is what guides my brush. When I see how light works its magic on the nuances of the human face, a warm feeling spreads within me and I want to capture it. Light and shadow and the exquisite and sometimes subtle way it affects everything around me is the essence of my portraits, still lifes and landscapes. I want to paint it then I can own it. A native of Chatham Ontario, I was presented my first set of Winsor Newton paints at the age of seven and have carried on a love affair with art since.


"Dorothy’s desire for sensitivity and perfection results in evocative, respectful and warm images. Her realistic style and gentle approach, coupled with an inspired ability to see and share joy, capture the character of the subject and the essence of a moment with palettes chosen from close artistic observation. Because she paints from the heart, each painting is a generous gift, sharing the tender subtleties and intuitive understanding of her subjects with the viewer."

2009 Annual Show & Sale

Lambeth Art Association
37th Annual Show and Sale
April 23 to 25, 2009

What words can I use to describe the show? Inspiring, motivating, refreshing, stimulating and overwhelming, come to mind. It truly was an incredible array of artwork by the members of a very talented Lambeth Art Association. The approximately 800 works of art, varied in style, size, medium and price. Original artwork was available matted and / or framed. Mediums included oils, acrylics, mixed media, watercolour, ink and graphite.

For the opening night on Thursday, art lovers, guest and artists were wall to wall. There was a steady stream of guests on both Friday and Saturday. Thank you to all that attended. Hope to see you again next year.

A total of 72 artists submitted artwork. Congratulations to those who sold work. Its great to see a membership with so many members willing to volunteer and fill the various roles at the show. As a relatively new member, volunteering to help out was an easy and social way to get to know other members.

A special thanks to all the conveyors and organizers of the show. All of their hard work and dedication is appreciated. The 37th annual show and sale of the Lambeth Art Association was great!
