On The Waterfront Gallery showcases works by artist Pamela Beckwith, an expressive figure painter with a rich history of creative expression and a deep understanding of art history.
Her works not only highlight the sights and sounds of the living museum that is Savannah, Georgia, but also include timeless and thought-provoking portraits of dancers, maidens, and society balls which capture the hidden moments of the world around us.
Most recently, the artist has forayed into digital expression, exploring the artistic possibilities of computers and technology to create unique portraits and collages featuring popular iconography.
Pamela began her education at the University of Minnesota, studying dark room photography, before graduating from Fort Lewis College with a degree focus in art and art education. From there, she studied at the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts to fine-tune her craft.
She has served as an art historian and art therapist, and made lasting connections while serving as an oral historian for Spielberg's Shoah Foundation for holocaust survivors, and as a manager for the Miss Universe Pageant.
It was these experiences which helped shaped Pamela’s unique view of the world and are reflected through her evocative and memorable art.
