About Adele Kamp, June 8,1935 - October 27, 2020:

Inspired by the poetry she teaches and writes, Adele captures on
canvas what William Blake captures on paper. “Her paintings share
with the viewer the vital sources that inspire her to open like a
flower to life, drink in the nourishment from the earth, process
the sunlight and burst towards the heavens like child like
enthusiasm.” Adele Kamp has exhibited her art at Driftwood
Galleries, Peekskill NY; Lincoln Center, NY; Summa Galleries,
Brooklyn Heights, NY; Mamaroneck Artist Guild, NY; Wellfleet Art
Gallery, Mass.; Lambert Furniture and Decorator Showcases, NY
among other prestigous galleries.

“Adele’s canvases reflect mysticism and tranquility the colors are
serene and peaceful, creating their own special beauty. Inspired
by the Gardens of Giverny, the Biblical streets of Jerusalem, and
the spell of Sante Fe. They lift us into a world of memory and
dreams.” Adele has had One Woman Shows at Gallery 91 in Brooklyn
Heights, the Marri Gallery in Mamaroneck, NY, Lambert Studios,
NYC, Art and Frame Gallery in Mt. Kisco, NY, and The Gallery
Courtyard in Katonah, NY.

work. Adele was President of the Chappaqua Artist Guild, NY, from

Adele lit up a room. She inspired and encouraged all who knew her to be themselves without judgement. She sparkled with vibrancy when she spoke of things she loved. She was like a living flower that continuously blossomed and spread joy to all those around her. Her smile and laughter: infectious in the best way possible, injecting one with love! It was hard to be sad around Adele. She brightened up the world with her sharp wit and humor. To me, she was a mentor in both life and art, and will always be remembered as one who helped bring me back to myself when I thought myself was lost somewhere along the way. She always said to me, "Every day is a gift!" And then, she would add with a knowing smile, "YOU---my friend---are the gift." I will miss hearing her say "Hello darling! This Adele." She always made me smile. I love you my darling Adele now and forever and always, to the ends of the Earth and beyond!
