Adam Adcock received a BFA studio art degree from Appalachian State University in 2002, and received an MFA in sculpture from East Carolina University in 2007. He is a “maker” at heart, and thoroughly enjoys the process of bringing varied materials together to create meaningful and exciting relationships.
His works range in scale from hand-held to large outdoor
public works, but most are somewhere in-between (indoor pedestal size). While working an internship for sculptors, Shannon Owen and Lyle London in Phoenix, Arizona, Adam gained a lot of experience working on public and private commissions. His works have been chosen for public art commissions in Durham, NC and Charlotte, NC. He has also won several awards in national and regional juried exhibitions.
In 2007, Adam had the great privilege of studying abroad;
one month spent in Finland, Estonia, and Russia. On this trip, he participated in an international sculpture symposium, where he had the opportunity to collaborate and work within a community of sculptors from many countries around the world.
Adam currently lives in Banner Elk, NC. He considers the mountains of NC to be the most beautiful and inspiring landscape in the state, and feels very fortunate to be able to call it home. He is currently employed at Appalachian State University as the Art Department’s Lab Operations Manager.
