Monroe, Va., Artist Pamela Wallace to Exhibit Work at BC



“Point of View,” an exhibition of paintings by Pamela Wallace of Monroe, Va., will be on display Oct. 1 – Nov. 9 in the Cleo Driver Miller Art Gallery at Bridgewater College.

Wallace will give an artist’s talk at 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1, in the Boitnott Room. An artist’s reception will follow from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Miller Gallery. The convocation, reception and exhibition are open to the public at no charge.

Wallace will show work from two series – “Detritus” and “Elemental Flow.”

“The ‘Detritus’ works suggest landscape – uninhabited, imagined realms that evoke a more primeval time,” Wallace said. “The title of the show arises from the use of multihued scrapings from previous paintings – the detritus – as an early layer in subsequent pieces in the series.”

“Elemental Flow” is the artist’s response to viewing the earth on a cross- country flight from a four-seat, single-engine plane piloted by her son. “The wonder of geologic time predominated,” she said. “But with ever-present evidence of human alteration of the land.”

Wallace created the “Elemental Flow” paintings by using radiant heat to fuse earth-based pigments suspended in wax.

The Miller Gallery is located on the second floor of the Alexander Mack Memorial Library. The Gallery is open 8 a.m. to midnight Monday – Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1 to 11 p.m. Sunday.
