Pamela Acheson Myers, Takes Award at “Art of Association”

Pamela Acheson Myers is an emerging artist with a growing list of galleries and juried exhibits showing her artwork.  While her abstract landscapes and seascapes  offer the viewer much to enjoy, the depth of her artistic abilities will excite you. Her abstract paintings are celebrations of color, imagined floating hibiscus blossoms have lives of their own, and her drawings of birds offer a super sense of realism.   As we go to publication, Pamela just notified us of her work’s acceptance to The Artists’ Challenge at the Plaza Theater in Manalapan!  The Rickie Report shares some highlights of Pamela’s dramatic creativity and the venues where you can see her work.

"Jets Colors" by Pamela Acheson Myers

“Jets’ Colors” by Pamela Acheson Myers

 

 

Pamela paints mostly on linen and occasionally on canvas, using acrylic paints.  Her paintings are as large as 4 x 6 feet and as small as 5 x 7 inches.  She explains to The Rickie Report, “Intense color has thrilled me for as long as I can remember,  whether it appears in a spectacular sunset, or a wildly wallpapered room or a tropical bird’s brilliant rainbow of feathers.”

She says, “Since my childhood, I have been fascinated with the reflections that transpire when any combination of land and sky and water meet and I attempt to capture this in my abstract landscapes.

My purely abstract paintings are a tribute to the  extraordinary nature of color.”

 

 

 

"Can't Get Enough Of You" by Pamela Acheson Myers

“Can’t Get Enough Of You” by Pamela Acheson Myers

A world traveler and author, Pamela states, “The multitude of colors and reflections in the outdoors dazzle me!  I have been painting these vistas and the reflections they create from places all over the world, from Newport to the Florida Keys, to Venice, Italy to the fjords of Chile.  For me, every view of the convergence of land, water and sky is a magic moment – a natural canvas of colors and reflections never seen before.  Some are dramatic, some wildly chaotic and others blissfully peaceful. Every one is unique.”

Her hibiscus series surprises, with brilliant blossoms becoming lively personalities in the night skies. Pamela’s bird portraits show exceeding details, as she continues to explore the depth of her range of artistry.

Evolution of Layers: Time…..Paint…..Meaning…..

 What will you see when you look at Chisolm’s next series, “Evolution of Layers”? The Rickie Report cannot tell what meaning you should see, but we know that these mixed media pieces will certainly evoke a variety of emotions, thoughts and memories that are personal.  Chisolm’s use of materials and color makes you consider the meaning each piece has for you. At the time of year when many of us make “resolutions” for new or changed behaviors, it’s good to take some time to “consider”. This show opens on December 30th with a lovely reception and continues through February 2nd.

Chisolm has been captivated by drawing and creating since his childhood in Mississippi.  Happiest when making his own toys and taking art lessons after school, Chisolm was always interested in cultural arts.  Starting in high school and later through college he helped support himself as a dance choreographer.  His creativity flourished while at the University of Southern MS, which at the time was the only accredited school of arts in the South.

 

Chisolm participated in a number of art shows and represented the University in many regional competitions.  “Man Standing”, a figurative piece, won Best in Show and earned him a full scholarship for the balance of his education.

Layers in Time

 

This show will be based on the next series of work that has evolved from “Layers In Time”.  He has titled it, ” Evolution of Layers”, using acrylic paint, plastic and epoxy on canvas.

Evolution of Layers

 

After a world-wide successful career in the fashion industry, Chisolm returned to his artist roots.  While living in Washington, DC he participated in many art exhibitions and solo shows.  In September, 2009 he began painting full time.  JF Gallery in W. Palm Beach showcased his work in a solo exhibition in January, 2011.  Currently his work is available through DTR Modern Gallery and Liman Gallery both in Palm Beach,FL.  Studio 1608 of  West Palm Beach, FL and the Philip Morton Gallery of Rehoboth Beach, DE also represent his work. Chisolm has also been chosen as one of the artists of Palm Beach County’s Art in Public Spaces.  One of his pieces is currently hanging at the Palm Beach International Airport between concourse A & B.

K. Chisolm

Chisolm shares, “My true mission is to show movement, passion and energy in each of my art pieces.  I work with the movement of my body and describe it as my ‘handwriting’.  The emotion I feel each time I take brush to hand is what my work is all about.  It is bold, filled with energy and power, and is often layered with contrast”.
Chisolm lives and works in West Palm Beach, FL.  His work hangs in private homes as well as corporate collections all over the U.S.  For more information go to: www.chisolm-art.net or contact him at: chisolmart@gmail.com  or  561 267 7720.
