Sculptor Atticus Adams to Create Site-Specific Installation for The Westmoreland’s "Artist in Action" Series
GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania (May 24, 2018) – Metal fiber sculptor Atticus Adams will create a site-specific installation titled Summers of Green Apples with Salt in the Robertshaw Gallery at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art. Visitors will have the opportunity to see Adams at work between June 5-7, and the exhibition will be on view through August 5.
This exhibition is the second in the Artist in Action series at the Museum, in which visitors have the opportunity to interact with an artist as they work and experience part of their creative process.
Summers of Green Apples with Salt invokes Adams’ childhood memories of summers spent with his grandmother. Adams uses aluminum, bronze, coppers and stainless steel mesh to create abstract sculptures and installations, which often resemble flowers, clouds and other natural phenomena.
Adams’ formal art training includes time at Yale, Rhode Island School of Design and Harvard’s School of Architecture. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums across the country, including several in Pittsburgh, New York City and Palm Desert, California.

An opening reception for Summers of Green Apples with Salt will be held on Friday, June 8 from 5-7pm during Art on Tap, The Westmoreland’s monthly happy hour. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling 1.888.71TICKETS.
Exhibitions in The Westmoreland’s Robertshaw Gallery are made possible through the generous support of The Fine Foundation.
