Martin ’06M Exhibits Local Photography with a 'Creative Twist'
May 17, 2012
Montgomery Media reported that the fine art photography of local artist Pamela Martin ’06M will be featured at Ambler’s Art in the Storefront Gallery.
Inspired by nostalgia and sentimentality, Martin often photographs local scenes with a creative twist.
For example, her black and white photograph, “Elmwood Park” is of Norristown’s popular park adjacent to the Elmwood Park Zoo. An added a hint of color in the background creates enchantment and invites the viewer to enter deeper into the park. She stated, “The photo represents renewal and hope.”
In 1993, she received a BFA with honors in Fine Art Photography from Tyler School of Art. At this time, the school was located in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania. In 2006, she earned a Master’s degree with distinguished honors in Counseling Psychology from Arcadia University in Glenside, PA. She is a licensed professional counselor.
Martin has participated in several group and solo exhibitions, international juried exhibitions, received awards, and has been published. She has exhibited her artwork in various venues, including Phillips Mill Annual Juried Exhibition in New Hope, The State Museum of Pennsylvania, and Ven and Vaida Gallery in Olde City, Philadelphia.
On June 16, 2012, the day of the Ambler Arts Festival, she will be available in front of the exhibit between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for a meet and greet. All photographs will be for sale and prints can be made by request.
