Yura Adams is known for her abstract and energetic works inspired by natural sciences. Her paintings are her own interpretation of visual physics, interpretations that play with observation and messages of cultural and poetic experiences.


Her interdisciplinary career is based in the San Francisco Bay area, Lower East Side of NYC, the Hudson Valley and currently Western Massachusetts. Adams has been exhibited as a painter, and an intermedia artist including performance art throughout the United States in venues such as The New Museum in New York, Experimental Intermedia, Franklin Furnace, New Music America, Real Art Ways, Hartford, Connecticut, and one person shows at the John Davis Gallery in Hudson, New York. Adams has received a Martha Boschen Porter Grant from Berkshire Taconic Foundation, a National Endowment for the Arts individual artist grant, two New York Decentralization grants, and was a 2009 regional representative in the New York Foundation for the Arts, Mark program.
