Rachel Adams named associate curator for UB Art Galleries

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Rachel Adams, a curator with an eye for
fresh young contemporary artists who work in a wide range of media,
has been named associate curator of the University at Buffalo Art
Gallery in the UB Center for the Arts (CFA).

Adams will begin today, March 2. She takes up the post held for
11 years by Sandra Q. Firmin, who was named director of the CU Art
Museum, University of Colorado, Boulder.

Adams is expected to help maintain a dynamic forum for
contemporary art by planning and executing exhibitions, projects
and events; and commission artists for the annual site-specific
installation in the Lightwell Gallery in the CFA, whose
40-foot-high walls culminate in skylights that flood the gallery
with natural light.

Adams also will provide curatorial training for a graduate
assistant in the Department of Art, which is responsible for
exhibitions in the second floor CFA gallery.

“I enjoy working across departments
