The Other Art Fair

Pamela Staker is a Chicago-based contemporary artist. She recently relocated her studio to The Bridgeport Art Center and is available by appointment or once a month at the Third Friday Open Studio Events. Staker received her BFA in painting from the University of Illinois at Urbana / Champaign and has received several grants and awards including an Illinois Arts Council Fellowship and a CAAP Individual Artist Grant from the City of Chicago, Department of Cultural Affairs.

Staker's work has an urban/rural duality strongly influenced by growing up in a small Midwestern town and then transplanting to downtown Chicago directly after art school. She is forever trying to capture fragments of the colors and shapes etched in her memory and mix them with her current observations as a city dweller. Staker's art-making process is a performance of sorts – spontaneously choreographed, playful, sensitive, and free-flowing. She allows herself a great deal of freedom in paint handling, creating energy in the works by applying marks quickly and with a confidence that is intuitive and decidedly unfussy.

I am thrilled to have several works in the permanent collection of the newly opened Sophy Hyde Park Boutique Hotel.

I am pleased to announce that I was selected for inclusion in the International Issue 13, June 2016 of Fresh Paint Magazine by curator Rebecca Wilson, Chief Curator and VP, Art Advisory at Saatchi Art.
