Pamela Beer

Pamela BeerWhile not classified as a collage artist, Pam's work may contain elements of collage because anything goes when the creative process begins. Pam creates her own patterns, stamps, and colored papers for application during the process as needed.
Representational or whimsical work begins with pattern and shapes that feel good. At times, a vague notion for the theme of the work is present when working in series. Inspiration may not only be color and pattern; but ideation, personality, and feelings.
Most abstract work develops through a process of layering and textures, structure and looseness, lights and darks, and often a subtracting of layers until the visual dialog becomes stronger and the story solidifies.

Elisa Law, Washington State Historical Society

Elisa Law from the Washington State Historical Society will join us to speak about the women's suffrage movement. She will educate us about the events leading up to the passage of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution and provide us with information to inspire collages that will commemorate the 100th anniversary of women nationwide securing the right to vote. Elisa's presentation comes a few months in advance of the submission deadline for the Northwest Collage Society's spring 2020 exhibit to be held at the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma, as part of its women's suffrage centennial celebration.
