Adam Dwight
Reception: Friday, November 19, 6:30 to 8:30pm

Starting November 9, Adam Dwight will display gouache paintings of new characters at Kefa Cafe in downtown Silver Spring, accompanied by a 'cafe residency,' in which Dwight will accept insights and ideas on the characters and generate new drawings based on audience input received. The artist will complete the new drawings during business hours at a workstation inside the cafe for the duration of the show.


1) The audience can submit a shape, concept, sentence, word or drawing on posted sheets next to each work displayed.

2) The artist will accept up to 5 ideas per character and will generate up to 10 drawings per character, further refining the character's narrative.

3) New drawings will be displayed with the characters for the duration of the show.

4) The artist will accept coffee from other customers during residency hours.
