“Becky Adams is a collector of stories; they become an integral part of her life and are ingrained into the making of her work through the sophisticated use of stitch, vintage fabric and antique ephemera. There is a subtle and respectful glance to the study of the human condition; each piece is aware of its past, its present and its untold future. Through the natural language of her work, each piece becomes an embodiment of a story preserved within each careful stitch.”
– Hannah Kelly, Curator
