Antonio Adams, a Cincinnati self-taught artist whose flair for populating his colorful paintings with a fascinating narrative sensibility replete with vividly developed real and imaginary characters, has an impressive show of new work underway at Country Club through May 16. His paintings work as storytelling — part fantasy, part autobiography, part recognizable urban landscape, as in “106 Mile’s on the Highway to Art Thing & the Orgllycreeks.” It's as interesting as its title. The show also contains an astonishingly detailed, large-scale triptych made in collaboration with Cincinnati artist Brian Joiner that is modeled on Picasso’s “Guernica” but also references Bosch and Henry Darger. Adams is quickly becoming a Cincinnati art treasure. Get gallery details and find nearby bars and restaurants here
