Pamela Callahan received a B.A. degree in Studio Art from Lawrence University, Appleton WI in 1988. She was the recipient of the Elizabeth Richardson Award for outstanding majors in art. Over the years Callahan’s style has changed and evolved. Once known for her whimsical work, Callahan has become fascinated with black birds and one-eyed, multiple headed beings along with part human/part animal figures. Callahan’s imagination doesn’t stop with her paintings; many are finished by nailing the corners of the canvas onto a wood panel or painting directly on wood panels. The finished piece incorporates Callahan’s artistic skill and creativity.
From 1998 through 2005, Callahan has shown her work in multiple exhibitions throughout the mid-west. A recipient of Curator Choice Awards in 1999, 2002 and 2003 from Around the Coyote Art Festival, Chicago, Callahan also picked up a Purchase Award from the Woodstock IL Old Court House Art Center.
You can find Callahan’s art in the several publications including Venus Examines Her Breast; Poems by Maureen Seaton, 2004 and The Art Scene, Chicago 2000.
