“No Doldrums Here”
July 1-31, 2012 at Kirk-Bear Canyon public libary, 8959 E. Tanque Verde, NE corner of Bear Canyon Rd.
Tucson artist Pamela D. Howe shakes up the ‘dog days of summer’ with her eclectic display of images in watercolor and oil. She moves between 3 areas in her studio as she paints oils on canvas, works in watercolor on paper, or composes 3-dimensional shadow boxes, sculptures, and necklaces.
“I especially like animal images, but am also drawn to southwestern, Native American, and fantasy themes. My style ranges from realistic, touches on impressionistic, and expands to a bit of what I call ‘essence abstract’.”
Meet the Artist Saturday afternoon July 14th, 2pm-4pm. Extra items will be available including cards and jewelry. Refreshments will be served.
