Lexington Park Gallery

Lexington Park Library Art Gallery

January 15 – March 1, 2017: Adrienne Dixon

Adrienne Dixon was born May 25, 1989 in the small town of Avenue, Maryland. Growing up on her family’s farm Adrienne often found herself outside exploring nature, trying to build and craft things, fascinated with creation. These childhood fascinations led her to the fine arts; a love of art galleries, museums, and the power art can have over its viewers.

In 2011 Adrienne earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design. Her time in school lead to a continual practice in art making as a studio artist. Adrienne works in a range of different media such as watercolor, acrylic, and hyper-realistic oil paintings. The artist is also working on a number of conceptual mixed-media works, which are comprised of materials such as glitter, wood, acrylic paint and Resin. These works are playful, colorful, and shiny reflecting on the materialistic culture of western society.

Adrienne’s work has been displayed in numerous art galleries on the East Coast, as well as being in many private collections across the nation. Currently Adrienne is making a variety of works in her studio, managing Off the Square Gallery, and teaching fine art classes to all age groups at Yellow Door Art Studio in Leonardtown, Maryland.
