Gary Adams was born March 8, 1957 in Owensboro, Kentucky. It was apparent at a very early age that he possessed artistic abilities. As a child, he would spend many hours drawing
cartoons from the local newspaper. Over the years, his drawings took on a more realistic quality. All throughout his school years, he excelled in art. In 1975 while a senior at Daviess County High School, he was awarded the “Outstanding Senior Award”. He appeared on local TV and was also given a key to the city by the mayor. Gary released his first limited edition art print in 1976. The subject was an old mill located at Falls of Rough, Kentucky. A total of 1,500 copies were sold in just a few months. Since that first release, Gary painted and issued many other subjects, and has sold over 16,000 prints and original paintings.
