Current Exhibition: Feeding The Oceans 
We rely on our oceans to feed us, but what are we feeding the oceans? Oceans are the recipient of our taxing agriculture, construction and home landscape maintenance practices. How much is too much? When do we really listen to the ocean but for our own enjoyment? What will we do when the ocean no longer provides?
These are just a few questions in view of this call to artists. Yes, the oceans are beautiful with many stunning life forms under water. We call on artists to show the whole story in this exhibit month of October at Fogartyville. The artwork will set the stage for planned events and discussions about our waterways that feed the oceans.

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.
