Primrose Adams’ spruce root weaving was featured in “Changing Hands: Art without reservation 2,” Museum of Arts & Design, New York; and “Raven Travelling: Two centuries of Haida art,” Vancouver Art Gallery, 2006. Her daughter is artist Isabel Rorick.
“Trained in the traditional manner, Primrose Adams is descended from famed Haida artist Charles Edenshaw. She has revived the ancient art of spruce root baskets, but on a smaller scale and for a new use. The baskets are painted by her son Alfred, who was also traditionally trained—initially as an argillite carver—by his uncle, Claude Davidson. Among the public collections that include her work is the Field Musuem, Chicago, Illinois.”
