Adam Gabriel Winnie is a transdisciplinary artist and BFA painting alum
of the Savannah College of Art and Design. After graduating suma cum
laude from SCAD in 2012, Adam decided to stay in Savannah and make it
his home. Beginning in 2003, he has extensively shown his work both
locally and nationally, including 27 group and 11 solo exhibitions. His
discipline covers painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, performance
art, installation and audio sculpture. His current studio practice
focuses on large-scale narrative oil painting and life-size figurative
Before moving to Savannah in 2009, Adam studied photography and welding
at Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, Michigan for seven years.
It was there that he recognized the importance of promoting the arts
within the community and began curating exhibitions of local artists. He
went on to become the founder of several student arts organizations,
co-founded Natural Canvas, an underground art and music venue and later
co-founded Atomic Art Cooperative, a nonprofit arts organization which
focused on installing local Pop-Up exhibitions.
Last July Adam held a solo exhibition at the Sylvia White Gallery in
Ventura, California. This show was the result of winning their annual
international juried exhibition from the previous year. Locally, he
received an exhibition fellowship from the local non-profit, Art Rise
Savannah (formerly Desotorow Gallery), to present a solo show of his
works last December at their Fresh Exhibitions gallery.
