From the Curator

Pamela Callender holds a Masters of Fine Art degree in Interdisciplinary Arts (MFAIA) from Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Arts from Eckerd College, in St. Petersburg, Florida. Her undergraduate minor degree in Human Development advanced her ten-year career as a Ballroom Dance Certified Educator at Manatee School for the Arts (middle/high Arts Charter school), in Palmetto, Florida.

In 1999, she founded Spats Youth Dance Sport Foundation, a non-profit with a mission to make Ballroom Dancing affordable to all children. She has directed, choreographed, and produced numerous youth Ballroom Dance programs serving communities in the Gulf Coast area.

Throughout her career, Pamela has continued to explore new means of visual expression inspired by music and movement. Her more recent work utilizes mixed media, photography and sculpture to explore the fine line between the beauty and the degradation of human impact on the environment.

Call For Artists: Textile Art Exhibition

Textiles are a medium that span a wide range of diverse processes, materials, and presentations to capture artists’ values and experiences.

The Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center would like to call on artists to share and highlight this diversity and experience in our upcoming Textile Art Exhibition, December 2018 through January 2019. We aim to showcase a variety of textile works and expand our community’s definition of the textile art medium.
