Adele Seltzer is a painter, printmaker and metal sculptor.  Her work has been inspired by her interest in archeology and her connections with nature.  She uses monotype, drypoint, painting, and the mixed media process of layering to create depth and space.  The dark and light build the foundation for her abstracted works.  Her sculpture is an outgrowth of her works on paper and the paintings on canvas.

Adele received a Bachelor and Masters degree from the University of Pennsylvania and continued her studies in art at Stanford University and San Jose State University receiving a Masters in Fine Art. She has taught painting and is presently teaching the monotype process. She has exhibited her work at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Ridgefield, Connecticut and locally at the San Jose Museum and the DeSaisset Museum. She has been represented in galleries in California, Washington D.C., New York City, and Wiesbaden, Germany. Her work can also be found in many private and public collections both in the United States and Europe..
