PAM DOUGLAS

Pam Douglas has been in decades of shows including an installation in the California African American Museum and at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. 

Genie Davis, contributor to Artillery and Diversions, wrote: “When Pam Douglas shapes an installation, she shapes a world – one that grabs viewers by the heart and gut, and twists both with the power and emotion she presents.”

Shana Nys Dambrot, Arts Editor at LA Weekly, reviewed Douglas’ 2017 solo show in the Huff Post: “Pam Douglas is steeped in the magical way assemblage creates meaning. But she also excels at using paint, light, and line to modify and repurpose her finds into thematic compositional elements of powerful narratives.”

Douglas’ work has been critically acclaimed by Scarlet Cheng, contributor to Artillery and the Los Angeles Times: “Pam Douglas adeptly combines drawing, painting and assemblage. …Her work so often expresses the universal polarities that define human existence. This cycle is joyful and sublime.”

Her work was featured in the Los Angeles Art Show at the Convention Center, January 2019 by the Los Angeles Art Association
