Passion for Art + Animals = Adamson Gallery

When Colleen Adamson found herself out of a job about five years ago, she stood at the crossroads and pondered her options. What to do? Animals had been a lifelong passion. So had art.

Combining the two in the form of a new career seemed the perfect solution. This past July, Adamson saw her dream realized in the Adamson Gallery, devoted primarily to animal art. "We all have different callings," she says. "This is mine." Located at 1021 R St. in the historic Arthouse, the spacious, contemporary gallery showcases everything from paintings to photography and sculpture, from the whimsical to the serious. Shows often double as fundraisers, with proceeds benefiting animal causes.

Art With Heart

Adamson Gallery Appeals to Animal Lovers

Barnyard fowl, owls, hawks, honeybees—that's just a small sample of the variety of animal art currently exhibited at Adamson Gallery, which opened in mid-July 2012 in the historic Fuller Building (now called Arthouse) on Sacramento’s R Street Corridor. Few people are fortunate enough to achieve their lifelong dream. Fewer still realize two dreams, but Colleen Adamson has. "Adamson Gallery has been the perfect platform for me to combine my passion for art and my love for animals into my dream career," she says. "I always had a dream of owning an art gallery, but it was one of those lofty dreams that I put on the backburner. I never actually thought it would come to fruition."
