"From the Scrap Pile," an exhibit of iron and steel sculptures by Jim Adams, is being featured in the Elizabeth Rozier Gallery at the Jefferson Landing State Historical Site in Jefferson City through May 28.
Jim Adams, a mid-Missouri native now living in Texas, took up artistry in iron and steel in 2007 after working 24 years in the information technologies field. His goal is to find aspects of beauty and meaning in what is considered "scrap" and give it a second life as art. The shapes and qualities of the various pieces of scrap metal become the inspiration for the works.
The Elizabeth Rozier Gallery is located in the Union Hotel at Jefferson Landing State Historic Site at 101 Jefferson. The gallery is open from 10 am to 4 pm Tuesday through Saturday. Jefferson Landing State Historical Site is part of the Missouri state park system.
