A member of Falls Church Arts, Pamela Lakes shows her work an image at a time at Falls Church Arts. It is hard for patrons to gain traction with artists whose exposure is constrained by gallery space, or whose work is lost in the vast amount of noise in the visual world. So, today, timeout is called to see Pamela Lakes’ photo art here at Arlington Art Examiner.
First, get to know the photo artist through her bio.
“Although my day job is with the Federal Government, I have been interested in photography as an art form since college, when I took an art appreciation course. Over the years, I have moved from a single lens reflex (SLR) camera to the semi-automatic digital camera that I now have. My subjects are varied, and I have taken advantage of my business trips to Appalachia as well as vacations to the Philippines and other places to snap some photos.
I became involved in Falls Church Arts through my partner, Victoria Lakes, who is one of the artists there. I have mainly focused on fine art photography, because I find it a way to express myself on different levels, and I enjoy the creative process involved. In the digital age, the options in the photography area are nearly limitless. I hope to spend more time on the medium when I retire in a couple of years. In the meantime, I hope to participate in more art shows.
Originally, I am from New York City (Manhattan). I received my undergraduate degree from Northwestern University, where I majored in mathematics and minored in English, and I got my law degree from Georgetown University Law School. I have lived in the D.C. area since law school, and I have been in Falls Church since 1989.
These photographs are what I have exhibited at Falls Church Arts. I also have my work at Fine Art America. http://fineartamerica.com/art/all/pam+lakes/all”
Pam is currently exhibiting work in the “Now & Then” exhibit at Falls Church Arts.
What you see from this collection is that Pam is engaged in landscape and places. Her work illustrates high contrast featured in such things as a warm scene from a beach in the Philippines to a cold spring in the Appalachians. She has a warm spot for Americana too.
