Gwen Adams Norton

About the artist:

Gwen Adams Norton was born in 1959 in the U.S. Virgin Islands. After a 28-year career in banking and finance, she began studying photography at the International Center for Photography and with several renowned fine art photographers. She draws inspiration for her photography from her international travels as well as places close to home, engaging with the world with curiosity and passion. Her award-winning images focus on varied environments which stir unexpected emotions.

While she primarily photographs digitally, Gwen has used film photography as a way to see differently. She also uses non-traditional, non-commercial photographic printing processes to reimagine her work.

In November 2019, Gwen was in a two-person exhibition highlighting stark and lonely landscapes from the Bolivian High Desert. A Limited-Edition Artist Book accompanied the exhibition “The Road to Potosí”. She has had a solo exhibition, “Landscapes and Other Images” at the Feldman Family Art Space on Martha’s Vineyard and been featured in numerous group exhibitions. She was scheduled to exhibit in the Playhouse Art Space in 2020, but her exhibit is postponed until a later date to be announced.

Several of her images are in the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital Permanent Art Collection and in several significant private collections.

Gwen lives in New York City and Martha’s Vineyard with her husband Peter Norton.
