Carole Peck’s Good News Café will welcome Adrienne with an opening reception from 3 pm to 5 pm on Sunday, April 23, 2017. The public is invited to meet the artist, view her exhibition, and learn more about her work while enjoying complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine.

“Adrienne Zinn is a self-taught artist who discovered her passion for painting later in life. Born in Bridgeport Connecticut, Adrienne grew up sailing with her father in Long Island Sound and the Gulf of Mexico. Her father’s love of the ocean and his own artistic expression fostered Adrienne’s love of art beginning in early childhood” (http://adriennebeth.wixsite.com).

As Adrienne states in her own words, “When I uncovered my ability to paint, I knew that an artist had been living inside of me. I begin my paintings with the shapes and colors I see. The painting then comes to life as my feelings about the subject surfaces. I enjoy experimenting with various mediums and methods, so each of my works are different in some way. I have a particular affinity for depicting culture, boats, water, and dogs. My training in sociology and my world travels are strong influences on my work. Painting has become an integral part of who I am today” (Adrienne Zinn).

Drawn to the people and cultures of distant places, Adrienne’s collections reflect and depict the everyday life of the people and her love for the land and wildlife of Africa and the Antarctic creating these paintings to exemplify a comprehensive portrayal of the beauty of these lands. Loving to work in different mediums, Adrienne has a special expressionist collection called “Berlin”. Using the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin as the model, these paintings reflect her interpretation of this historic era. A final and quite special series in Adrienne’s cannon, called “The Tiny House Series”, is a collection of vivid 4”x 4” acrylic on stretched canvas paintings of flowers and garden vegetables making them the perfect added touch to the little nooks and crannies of one’s home. Adrienne’s work has been shown throughout Georgia, in such places as the “Grandview Gallery”. She has also been featured in “Fine Art America” and “The Art Colony”. A Summa Cum Laude graduate of sociology, possessing 28 years in the airline industry, and having experienced the beauty of all seven continents, Adrienne’s collections do indeed reflect the influence of culture and world travel.

Adrienne presently lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband Ben Zinn, a retired aerospace engineering professor. In her free time, Adrienne loves gardening, kayaking, and spending time with her mother, brothers, children, daughter-in-law, and four grand-dogs. She loves to communicate with people and speaks both French and Spanish. An avid reader, Adrienne has been a member of a book club for several years. In possessing a love and desire to care for the wildlife of her area, in particular birds, Adrienne happily shares her balcony by welcoming any winged creature to be her guest to the bird bath and several feeders she has provided for them.
