Elaine Adams, Director of the Pasadena-based art gallery American Legacy Fine Arts, advises collectors on the acquisition of fine art from today’s leading artists. Immersed in the contemporary-traditional art scene, including serving as Executive Director and CEO of the historic California Art Club, Adams is recognized as one of the country’s most influential forces in the growing shift away from conceptual art and back to representational, figurative formats. She is a public speaker as well as a published writer. The book, California Light: A Century of Landscapes: Paintings of the California Art Club, includes a preface written by Adams and Southwest Art Magazine named her one of the country’s “Five Most Notable Women.” With the gallery’s individualized approach, Adams works with clients to identify art that reflects the collector’s interests and enriches their personal environments.
