This show of Adelie Landis Bischoff's work is more a study than a survey. It is a small selection of paintings spanning the artists' career from the mid 1950's to the present and includes both abstract and figurative examples. She studied at the California School of Fine Arts in 1951/52 and is know for being an early member of the San Francisco Abstract Expressionist movement. (She was active in the Beat era and showed at the King Ubu Gallery.) Adelie eventually departed from abstraction for the Bay Area Figurative style. She has consistently explored both kinds of painting through the years.

Adelie was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, and obtained a Master's degree in Art from the University of California in Berkeley in 1959. She has exhibited her work in one-person and group shows in the Bay Area and in New York. She was a Campbell Gallery "Introductions" artist in 1975. A survey exhibition of her work is at the Salander-O'Reilly Gallery in New York, September 7 - 30, 2006; a catalog with an essay by Bill Berkson is available.
