6 February – 8 March 2015
Pam received her degree in drawing and painting from Washington University, where classical figure study and abstract expressionism were the artistic movements in the mid 70’s. In graduate school at Pratt Institute, conceptualism was the trend. These early influences and other life experiences inform her work and teaching today. Pam practices “finding accuracy in expression”, a phrase which captures years of rendering, painting and writing her biography. During this process, she invented ways to challenge her own habitual ways of thinking and working – methods she shares with her students. Pam has taught drawing for over two decades, beginning with elementary school at the Dalton School in New York and culminating with graduate students at the University of Virginia. For 20 years, she held a position at Piedmont Virginia Community College where she eventually became a Professor of Art. Pam holds a joint appointment in the School of Architecture and Department of Drama. She has exhibited in the DC area at Gallery 10 and G.R.A.C.E., regionally at Peninsula Fine Arts Center, Sawhill Gallery and 1708 Gallery, and in the Midwest at New Harmony Gallery in Indiana. Her work is in the private collection of Capitol One in Richmond, Kate Spade in New York and the New Harmony Inn. She has a permanent installation of paintings in the Charlottesville City Hall Annex.
