Artists for the Barnes: B.J. Adams

With a background in fine art, B. J. Adams current work is realistic and in some instances surrealistic. Her images are first drawn on paper. She then uses a sewing machine to create that exact image with thread.

Adams work has been shown in many international art exhibits including The 9th International Triennale of Tapestry in Lodz, Poland, Nos Plus Belles Histoires Brodees at the Folk Art Museum in Paris, and Art of the Stitch in London as well as the Art in Embassies programs. Nationally her work has been exhibited in The Textile Museum in Washington, DC and in three Quilt Nationals, Celebrating the Stitch, The Full Deck and many other venues.

B. J.'s work is in the collection of many public buildings including The Art Institute of Chicago, Disney’s ESPN Zone in D.C., Bellsouth Corporation in Atlanta, Kaiser Permanente in Washington, DC, and Alabama Power and Light in Birmingham, Alabama. She has been awarded two grants from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and several awards for individual works in various exhibits
