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.
