JEFFERSON CITY, MO., May 25, 2011 – An artist reception for the exhibit “From the Scrap Pile” will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. on May 27 at the Rozier Gallery at the Jefferson Landing State Historic Site in Jefferson City. The exhibition of iron and steel sculptures by Jim Adams will close the following day at 4 p.m.

Jim Adams took up artistry in iron and steel in 2007 after working 24 years in the information technologies field. He finds aspects of beauty and meaning in what is considered scrap and gives it a second life as art. The shapes and qualities of the various pieces of scrap metal become the inspiration for the works.

The Elizabeth Rozier Gallery is located in the Union Hotel at Jefferson Landing State Historic Site at 101 Jefferson St. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jefferson Landing State Historic Site is part of the Missouri state park system.
