Celebrating Our Artists
Come join us on April 13th, 2013, 5:00pm – 7:30pm at the Off Track Gallery to meet our artists and view their exhibition.
It is always wonderful to have the opportunity to meet and speak with the artists and get to know what makes them tick. Share with us in finding out what the driving forces are behind their passions, and share the feelings they exude for the pride in their work. We encourage you to join us and meet our artists.
Adam Koltz is a marine artist whose earliest memories include drawing ships and birds. His first encounter with boats was sailing a 40-foot wooden sloop on Lake Michigan in his early teens. About half of his twenty-year Navy career was spent on sea duty aboard several classes of ships, including merchant vessels.
The artist’s refreshing and unique approach to marine art often integrates nautical charts with his ship portraits. This enhances the visual presentation of marine history, and is a key element in his work. Each subject is researched in detail to accurately portray the historical relationship between the ship and the chart upon which it is drawn. Primarily, Adam works in pen and ink and watercolor to achieve not only detail, but life, richness and movement in his paintings. Adam has recently expanded his repertoire to include traditional watercolor painting.
