Adams is a fiber artist as well as a photographer. She is one of the co-founders of the Kentucky Women Photographers Network, which has members statewide. She has received grants from the Kentucky Foundation for Women and an Al Smith Individual Artist Fellowship from the Kentucky Arts Council. Her tapestries are handwoven from handspun wool yarns, in the natural colors of the Lincoln Longwool sheep as well as yarns that have been dyed in the skein using a Japanese brush.

There will be a reception for the artists, open to all, at the fellowship hall of the church from 5 until 7 p.m. during ArtWalk on Saturday.
