Pam Carlson

Portfolio Categories: Artists Exclusively Online.


Pam was born and raised in Darien, Connecticut where she loved art and participated in local school art shows. While attending college she utilized her Art Major skills by working each summer in N.Y. in commercial art within the advertising world. Teaching won her heart and she finished college with a degree in both Fine Art and Education. Pam taught in public schools in Connecticut, New York and Pennsylvania before becoming a fulltime mother, dress designer and bringing her craft back into her own home studio, exhibiting her work in local galleries and ‘town green’ art shows up and down the east coast; this went on for over twenty years.

She is now concentrating on gallery shows and has had her paintings juried in at The Guilford Art Assoc., The Art Essex Gallery, The Old Lyme Art Assoc., Mystic Art Assoc., Essex Art Assoc., The Art Trail, Slater Memorial Museum, in addition to Three Rivers Art Show, Pittsburg, Pa. and Gallery West and The Emerson Art Center both in Bozeman, MT. Her landscape subjects come from the Connecticut River and its estuaries to Buzzards Bay and also the Rocky Mountain lakes of Montana, many with its inspiring sunrises and sunsets.

Pam is a Director and Vice President of the Essex Art Assoc., and an associate member of the Mystic, Old Lyme, Madison, Clinton, Wickford and Guilford Art Associations. Over the last nine years, Pam developed and participates annually in the October invitational exhibit, ‘Five Women Painting’. Pam is a charter member of the Maple and Main Gallery in Chester. In its Stone Gallery, her recently completed One Woman Show raised thousands of dollars for the Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter.

In addition to several recent commissions, five of her paintings depicting Connecticut’s Farm animals are hanging in the Congressional Office Building in Washington DC. She has recently received several awards on her work from independent jurors including ‘Best of Show’ and her painting of New Beginnings was chosen by the Old Lyme Art Association as the featured painting for their 4-Acts show.
