Ann Arbor based Adrienne Kaplan explores the American search for happiness by choosing a day at the beach. Her goal is to transmit this search and achievement through the interplay of the paint and the subject. Her works are semi-representational acrylic paintings on canvas. Kaplan earned her BFA in Studio Art & History from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, and her MFA in Printmaking from Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Michigan. She is represented by WSG gallery in Ann Arbor, where she is an active partner and has exhibited her work continuously since 2005.
