“My work deals with human relationships and all the trials and tribulations that accompany them,” McAdams Selden said in an artist’s statement. “I work with traditional metal smithing and jewelry techniques along with foundry, blacksmithing, silk screening on fiber, and metal fabrication. I always look for more techniques and my themes are similar but ever changing.”

The public is invited to the opening reception for this exhibition at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 6 in the Angelina Center for the Arts Gallery.
