PAM CARLSON

Pam was born and raised in Darien, Connecticut where she loved art and participated in local school art shows.She has been in the art world since before collage where she majored in fine art and education. She worked in commercial art prior to becoming an art teacher in various public school systems and is now a Board member of the Essex Art Association. Starting out in pottery, she got the 'art show bug' early on, exhibiting in town green art shows up and down the east coast. Now she concentrates on painting subjects from Connecticut and American farms that include her barnyard friends as well as her landscapes in oil and acrylic of the surrounding riverfront countryside as well as the mountains of Montana where her son resides with his family

 While attending college she utilized her Art Major skills by working each summer in N.Y. in commercial art within the advertising world. Teaching won her heart and she finished college with a degree in both Fine Art and Education. Pam taught in public schools in Connecticut, New York and Pennsylvania before  bringing her craft back into her own home studio, exhibiting her work in local galleries and ‘town green’ art shows, up and down the east coast; this went on for over twenty years. 

She is now concentrating on gallery shows and has had her paintings juried in at The Guilford Art Assoc., Art Essex Gallery,  Old Lyme Art Assoc., Mystic Art Assoc., Essex Art Assoc., The Art Trail, Slater Memorial Museum, in addition to Three Rivers Art Show, Pittsburgh, Pa. and Gallery West and The Emerson Art Center both in Bozeman, MT. Her landscape subjects come from the Connecticut River and its estuaries to Buzzards Bay and also the Rocky Mountain lakes of Montana, many with its inspiring sunrises and sunsets. 

Pam is a Director and President of the Essex Art Assoc., and a member of the Mystic, Old Lyme, Madison, Clinton, Wickford and Guilford Art Associations. Over the last twelve years, Pam developed and participates annually in the October invitational exhibit, ‘Five Women Painting’. Pam is a charter member of the Maple and Main Gallery in Chester.   In its Stone Gallery, her  One Woman Show raised thousands of dollars for the Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter.

In addition to several recent commissions, five of her paintings depicting Connecticut’s Farm animals are hanging in the Congressional Office Building in Washington DC. She has recently received several awards on her work from independent jurors including 'Best of Show' and her painting of New Beginnings , chosen by the Old Lyme Art Association as the featured painting for their 4-Acts show.

Where are my Subjects?

The Rivers of the Connecticut are ever present in her Landscapes. Hydrangeas grow on Essex's fences.

 The beaches on the Connecticut shore inspired my Splash series. The Eagles in the sky are  right out my studio window.

 Across the street from my Son's Home in Manhattan, Montana is a great dairy farm where when you whistle the young cows will line up at the fence in a Chorus Line. Also in Old Lyme, CT you can find the farm animals of Connecticut; some of these are hanging in the US Legislative Office Building Walls.

 Chickens come from Connecticut farms to Bozeman, Montana where Pam spends time painting and visiting with her Son's family, who also raise chickens and goats. Her sheep come from down the street from her Connecticut as well as her Bozeman home.
