Each year at the SECURA Fine Arts Exhibition, a jury selects a Best of Show artist who is awarded a solo exhibition at the Trout Museum of Art. This year the Best of Show artist at the 41st Annual SECURA Fine Arts Exhibition was Adam Stoner.

Adam Stoner makes paintings, drawings, and video installations that visualize the intimate connections between architecture and our imagined interiors. How are we mutually inhabited by the very places we inhabit? If we build structures, do they also build us?

A MFA graduate from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts, Adam is the recipient of UWM’s Chancellor’s Graduate Student Award, Layton Fellowship, and Williams College’s Gilbert W. Gabriel Prize in Theater. Originally trained in scenic design, Adam’s research frequently explores the memory of space, the latent agency of materials, and the architectures—visible or invisible—which emerge from contact with the sacred.

Made possible by The Frank C. Shattuck Community Fund and the Sandra & Monroe Trout Art Exhibitions Endowment Fund both within the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region.
