Born in Manchester, Connecticut, and a Florida resident since 1950, Neil Adamson decided in1972 to devote his full time to painting the disappearing Florida wilderness and shoreline, although he continues to take occasional painting trips through New England.
Neil is the recipient of over 140 awards for his watercolors which include watercolors accepted in the American Watercolor Society’s 108th Annual Show. He was selected for their yearly circuit and again for their 110th Annual Show in New York. In the American Watercolor Society’s 120th Annual Exhibition, he won the Arjomari/Arches Paper Award and his work was picked for the traveling show.
Two of the artist’s works were chosen by the St. Petersburg Museum to be part of its Art Embassy Program. These paintings are on loan to the Australian Embassy during 1989-92.
The November-December 1989 issue of Florida Wildlife contained a special write-up on Adamson’s work. He was the first artist to be selected by the Foundation Realty Fund (Raymond James Properties) for the Foundation of Fine Art. He was invited by the Salmangundi Club of New York City to be the Official Artist for the Coast Guard Art Program. read more…
