Pam COULTER Blehert

has a major in Fine Art from Antioch College and advanced studies at Ecole du Louvre, American University, Corcoran and Odeon Art School.

She has three of her acrylic paintings (including a five-part demonstration) included in the North Light Book of Acrylic Painting Techniques. Four of her oil paintings were featured in an article "Don't Mess with Mother Nature" in the February, 1995 issue of American Artist.

She has received many awards, including First Places in: November 1992 multi-media show and July 1993 watermedia show in the Art League Gallery at the Torpedo Factory, First Place in Oil in the annual League of Reston Artists Show, 1996 and 1997, Best of Show in the 1995 and 1996 Annual League of Reston Artists shows and First Place in both the 1992 and 1994 Springfield Art Guild "Art of the Figure" show at NOVA. She received the "May Lake Award" given by Phyllis Braff, Art Critic, NY Times, who commented at the presentation that "she edits well".

She has participated in such juried group shows as the Catherine Lorillard Wolf show at the National Arts Club (NYC, 95 and 98), the National Art League Invitational (NY), the Susquehanna Art Society regional show, the "Open Exhibition 1995" in Virginia (jurors included M. Stephen Doherty, Editor, American Artist), and many juried shows at the Art League of Alexandria Gallery in the Torpedo Factory, Alexandria, VA.

She has paintings in over 350 private collections. Public/corporate collections include The General Services Administration, US Government, and Hughes Systems Group.

From 1993-1997 (when it closed after 105 years of business), she showed at Venable-Neslage Galleries (Washington, DC). She has been a juried member of the Art League of Alexandria "Bin Gallery" for over five years.

She works primarily in oil and in a loose painterly style. She works as well in acrylics, watercolor, pastel, batik, pen and ink, charcoal, and pencil. Her originals are priced in the moderate range, from about $300 to $4200.

Artist's Statement

"I prefer a painting to communicate on several levels. First, the image and story content should elicit some emotional response from the viewer. Secondly, the paint itself, the forms and color, the motion and passion of the artist in producing the work, should pull in the viewer. Third, the painting should be not so finished, so real and complete, that it is impossible for the viewer to contribute to it. The painting should be constantly in the process of creation. A painting is itself. Itís not a reflection or duplication of reality. Itís a communication between me and you."

Limited Edition Prints

Two paintings -- "Southwester" and "Cellist" -- are now available as limited edition prints, signed and numbered, on archival paper. The printing is done by a pixelation method and the color and form duplication is excellent. Cost for each is $185, or $235 framed. Shipping is extra.

All paintings shown are available as high quality archival prints with a max size of 12 x 18 (crop to fit actual dimension, using an EPSON STYLUS PHOTO 2200 archival pigmented printer with archival paper for $75 (UNFRAMED AND UNMATTED). Some of the older paintings, however, might not "capture" well as the artist worked from scanned photos prior to getting a digital camera.
