The exhibition begins with an opening reception on Tuesday, April 7th from 5:30pm - 7:30pm, the event is free and open to the public. The exhibition will run through Tuesday, April 28th and will close with a Lunch and Learn reception at noon on the 28th. 

Adam Wiley is obsessed with making things. As a child he was always taking things apart and has now grown into an adult that loves to put things together. He focuses this need on creating art and is truly inspired when the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts. 

According to Adam, “My artistic focus for the past two years has been on a series of work I call Keeps. These functional boxes and jars are created out of clay, wood, and metal. I title them Keeps because they are intended to keep special things within them and are meant to keep in your art collection for generations. A keep in a castle is a tower that is a fortified refuge. I feel that this accurately describes the work that I produce - a special, secure, aesthetically pleasing presence in your modern castle.” 

Adam lives in Greensboro, NC he is the former lead ceramics instructor at Randolph Community College and currently works at Starworks Ceramics in Star, NC. To preview some of Adam’s work visit
