March 11 Monthly General Meeting: Dwayne Adams
Monthly General Membership Meeting atSourdough Mining Co., 5200 Juneau St., Anchorage at 7:00 PM. Social Hour from 6:00 - 7:00 PM.
Dwayne Adams is a landscape architect in Anchorage and was head of the local landscape architecture firm Land Design North for almost 20 years. In his work he produced numbers of drawings, sketches, and paintings that have been used for brochure covers, interpretive panels, and project concepts—some of which weren’t such good ideas. He’ll share images of some of the projects and products, and share his view of why hand-created images can still get results that computer-generated drawings can’t achieve.
