RIVER BOTTOM FOG

RIVER BOTTOM FOG
Morning ground fog, Riverbend Farm.

Dobree Adams and Jonathan Greene live on a Kentucky River farm north of Frankfort.

   Although Dobree has long been recognized in the region as one of Kentucky’s contemporary fiber artists,

she has only recently established a reputation as a photographer.

   Through the years she has taken hundreds of photographs, initially as 35mm color slides, to record the

images she has gathered, at home on the farm as well as in her travels. These slides have rarely been used

in the design process, but rather to demonstrate the influences behind her woven work. In her slide lectures

she has brought together images of her weavings and images of the landscape, but it was not until 2003 that

she first exhibited her photographic work.

   She has had many exhibitions of her tapestries together with her photographs and since 2009 she and

Jonathan have been exhibiting her tapestries and photographs intertwined with his poems, a collaboration

of vision and voice. But it was not until 2013 that she had the first solo exhibition of her photographs, at

the new Craft(s) Gallery in Louisville for the 2013 Louisville Photo Biennial.

   Her photographic work has been selected for  Paul Paletti Gallery’s AFFORDABLE ART SHOW, the

Lexington Art League’s juried exhibitions NUDE 2010 and NUDE 2011, and for the juried PADUCAH

PHOTO 2010 exhibition.

   Dobree, who is now committed to working in  both fiber and photography, is one of the founders

of the Kentucky Women Photographers Network.
