Pam Avery

In the Artists Studios I exhibit Abstract Painting, Ceramics, and Sculpture that are for sale. I enjoy painting in the abstract style using acrylic paint. I have exhibited my work in the California State Fair three times. I have won awards and shown locally such as Bold Expressions Exhibit, Magnum Opus, and Placer Artists League. I enjoy plein air painting being outdoors depicting the water, land and sky. I have a passion for Middle Eastern dance and music, and this influences my painting a great deal through rhythm, space and movement. I also throw functional pottery on the potter's wheel in the garage at home and in the studio of Linnell Barnhart. I love the varied glaze colors achieved with each firing. It is always a surprise and a delight to see the work come out of the kiln.
I taught high school Art in Twin Rivers USD for 21 years. I have a single subject credential in art and a Masters in Art Education from Sacramento State University.

Yellow and Gray is a painting that began with the two colors in mind to try. I saw a room decorated in yellow and gray and the colors were so soft and yet really illuminating. The painting evokes a feeling of a parade with flags waving in the wind.
