Pamela Salisbury: New Work 2016
The Painting Center is pleased to announce an exhibition of recent work by Pamela Salisbury. The show is comprised of sixteen small-scale paintings, ranging in size from 4 x 4 inches to 12 x 12 inches. All works are acrylic paint on wood panel. The new work represents a departure from the artist’s earlier oil paintings, which were made from observation and often made reference to birds and their habitat. While she continues to borrow basic shapes from the natural world, the forms are more abstract, and in many examples, highly stylized. The space created through color juxtapositions, and by overlapping and fusing form, is of special interest.
Pamela Salisbury received a BA in Sculpture from Bennington College, VT, and an MFA in Painting from the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting, & Sculpture, where she worked as an administrative associate through 2015. Her paintings have been shown in New Jersey and New York at venues including the Huntington Museum of Art, NJ; Riverside Studio, NJ; Panther Creek, NY; and The Studio School, NY. She is especially proud to be showing at the Painting Center with her mother, the artist Lois Dickson. Salisbury lives and works full-time in Kinderhook, NY.
