Biography

The child of a neuroscientist, D'Adamo grew up fascinated with biology, complex systems and the relationship between images and learning.  She studied philosophy and the history of science at St. John's College in Maryland.  She finished her BA in Visual Art and Philosophy at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, graduating with honours.  She has an MA in Art Education from SFSU and has won numerous awards as both a teacher and as a painter.  D'Adamo exhibits regularly in the Bay Area, including with the Oakland Museum of California Offsite Exhibitions, and most recently in the David Brewer Center in Berkeley and with Chandra Cerrito Gallery Offsite Exhibitions in downtown Oakland.  Her upcoming exhibition, "Particulate" is in collaboration with the UC Davis Department of Fisheries, and explores the restoration of the South Bay Ponds.  D'Adamo's new body of work explores making thinking visible and the structures of the brain.
