Art of War


A series of new paintings entitled "Small Memorial for a Great Loss," by Adam Straus, is a tribute to U.S. soldiers lost in the Iraq war. After his MFA training at Florida State in 1982, Straus eventually moved to New York where he's enjoyed remarkable success. His artwork has been featured in Harper's magazine and has been the subject of dozens of one-man exhibitions all over the world. Straus has served as visiting artist at Davidson College in North Carolina, the University of West Florida, the Seaside Institute and the Penland School of Crafts. The FSU exhibit featured Straus' work along with that of his mother, noted sculptor Phyllis Straus, recently retired from the FSU art department faculty.
