Artists & Artisan Tour
  June 26th, 2014

The Downtown Neighborhood Association of Savannah presents the Artists and Artisan Tour in conjunction with ARC Savannah. The event is similar to a progressive dinner, only instead of meals, guests move from historic home to home to sample different types of wine and local foods. Tour goers will enjoy meeting and mingling with homeowners and artists, as well as have the opportunity to purchase original art and view private and rare collections.

The Artists and Artisan Tour will begin and end at the Savannah Law School, where many of the new works of the featured artists will be on display. Each home will have a different group of artists participating and different wines to sample. The Tour’s purpose is to raise funds for downtown Savannah public safety initiatives including new lighting, security cameras, funding increased foot patrol and Neighborhood Crime Watch programming.

The Tour features three historic homes, located along Gaston Street, as well as the Savannah Law School, where the Tour will begin and end. Tour goers will enjoy meeting and mingling with homeowners and artists, as well as have the opportunity to purchase art along the way. Through a partnership with ARC (Savannah Artists Resource Collective), a distinguished group of Savannah artists will be on hand displaying and selling their work for this first time event.

Figuring the Self
  December 3rd-13th, 2013
This ongoing series of life-size figurative drawings develop through open narratives which take existent features of our inevitable conflicts as their central focus. Those private/public, internal/external conflicts are born through coping with an absurd and tragic existence whose meaning will forever escape our grasp. They embody our contradictory state of relationships with ourselves and others. The protagonists of these works, visually define, through personal experience and social precedence, the inescapability of our essential illness. There are no beginnings or endings, no solutions are offered and no utopia is alluded to. The viewer is faced with only the height of the second act. The incompleteness of narration intends to provoke inner dialog and intrigue while at the same time leaving the onlooker with wanting more. The self portraiture which exists represents My involvement with these preoccupations. I can only speak for myself, for each man is an island universe.

Work on Glass
  January 12th - 23rd, 2012
Works on Glass, featured 67 glass photographs and a video installation titled, An Endless Journey on an Island Universe. The exhibition explored the frailty of the human condition. In addition, our existential struggle within a fracturing society is revealed through the gestures of the figures and their environments. Technology as a Pandora's box, gender relationships, aging, loneliness, despair and control are woven into these contemporary photographic tableaus which summon a confrontational experience.

A Homage: Portraits of Strange Influence
large product photo   January 11th- 31st, 2008
The title "Homage and Influence" reflects the gratitude I wish to extend to these remarkably creative persons. The included in the portraits are performance artists, musicians, writers, photographers, visual artists, play writes, and philosophers. They reflected my own interests in life and artistic pursuits. The paintings were completed over a period of two years with each work taking between 40 to 70 hours of labor. This exhibition was made possible through the Pierpont Commons Juried Exhibition.

A Prelude to Frail Minds and Flesh
large product photo   August 1st - September 14th 2007

The subject of the exhibit endeavors to disrobe our Napoleon complex and confront our vulnerability of mind and body. Ours is a world of talent and of art. Mastery of one's self comes not only through occupation, but through persistent study and exploration of the arcane. Through all the ravages of time, the chaos of war and the frailty of the mind.. secrets live on. Knowledge alone survives. These are the stories of kingdoms long forgotten. These are the voices of scholars and ghosts.

Deciding to Disappear: A Revelations of Insignificance
large product photo   April 14th - May 12th 2006
Dissecting the human experience has become a major function behind this conceptual installation. Delving in to the fear of loneliness and insignificance one can either succumb to the minds power to reject reality or channel the energy to a higher understanding of humanity For you cannot truly know joy if you have not experienced fear. For Adam this exhibition has become a means of bringing the intangibility of thought into a tangible visual presence. This in turn, for the creator and experiencer, can act as a catalyst towards self reflection and the realization of purpose.

Man as MonoChrome
large product photo   February 3rd- 10th, 2006
Man as MonoChrome is a fierce tour de force of the senses. This exhibition isn't for the week hearted individual, it combines instillations of a biological nature (pigs heart, sheep eyes) with graphic body prints, sound force, sculpture and performances. We are finite men in a finite world seeking out that which is infinite.

False Gods & the White Picket Fence Syndrome
large product photo August 29th- September 19th 2005

The contexts behind this exhibition lie in the social commentary of material item worship, governmental and corporate media manipulations, as well as the selfishness of the American Dream. These recent works might be described as sculpture of a conceptually constructivist nature which embraces an almost Neo-Dadaistic approach.

Interpretations of the Infinite Moment
large product photo   May 1st- 31st, 2004
For Adam Winnie infinite moments are considered the most ascentantly influential elements in the unending series of events and experiences which create our personalities, traits, and reactions. Each precise instant has recourse and definite consequences upon the development our future selves. With some being more efficacious than others whether its when two lovers first kiss or man distraught with hart broke leaps to his death from a window. These moments transcend physical time and emanate an unending instant to which the experiencer is forced to say yes to all existence for nothing exists without a decisive moment.

Segments Squares Orange (1st Solo Exhibition)
large product photo    
Adam Winnie's solo exhibition debut at the Dreamland Theater in Ypsilanti Michigan. Sometimes subtle in its message, sometimes on the senses, the work can jointly be stark and throttling in what it conveys and how it plays on perceptions. The artist, for his part, subscribes to the notion that much of his art is unfinished, lending it to be taken in how it will through individual pairs of eyes. Through photography, photograms, paintings, sculptures, mixed media and assemblages Adam deconstructs boundaries of classification.
