Pam Dixon, American

Pam Dixon

Founder of Gallery 621, a co-op for contemporary artists in Benicia, Pam Dixon began her career in free-lance commercial and industrial art, later becoming a serious exhibiting artist in the 80′s.

Dixon’s checkered life history - a mad-cap mixture of Hollywood, Carmel and San Francisco “contribute to (her) inspired playfulness and sense of poignancy as refreshing as a blast of fresh air”, Mark Van Proyen. Art Week.

Notable exhibitions (from a long list) include two retrospectives: Richmond Art Center, Un-Still-Lifes: Pami Fat Face and her Friends, and San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, San Hosay Portrait.

Studio: Benicia, California

“Whatever happens between the wall-of-self and the wall-of-paint is the mystery which is worth everything.”
