STCC’s Carberry Fine Arts Gallery to feature work by Fafnir Adamites
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Amy H. Carberry Fine Arts Gallery at Springfield Technical Community College will feature art by Fafnir Adamites, of Turners Falls, throughout September.
“Fafnir Adamites, Insight That Accrues” will run from Sept. 4 through Sept. 29. The public is invited to a meet-and-greet reception with the artist on Sept. 19, 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
Using felt making and other traditional craft processes, Adamites creates sculptural and installation work that serve as meditations on trauma, memory and the legacy of emotional turmoil inherited from past generations. Using repetitious processes such as felt-making allows the artist to physically engage with and meditate on the concepts she is working with. Material exploration is the starting point for all of her work and plays a key role in building the conceptual backing of each piece.
Adamites holds a master of fine arts degree from the Fiber and Material Studies Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a bachelor of arts in Photography and Women’s Studies from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
She teaches at Snow Farm: The New England Craft Program, UMass Amherst, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and at The Academy at Charlemont.

The exhibition is made possible with support from the School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at STCC and Interim Dean Richard Greco.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Springfield Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency. For more information, visit stcc.edu/arts.
