In the Gallery! The art of Pamela Tarbell

Artist's Statement:

"My only inspiration to the arts back in the fifty and sixties was my art teacher that I had from kindergarten through high school. In high school they would only let me take an art class my senior year, since it was the time of “Sputnik” and only science and math were important.

I eventually received my degree from the Rhode Island School of Design in Art Education. I taught in a couple of different locations before moving to New Hampshire in 1971. At that time I added to a growing family of four children."

Biographical Information:

After spending more than 20 years managing the Mill Brook Gallery and Sculpture Garden, Pam Tarbell just reopened her space as PR Tarbell Fine Art and is returning to focus on her work as a studio painter.

Tarbell has been painting for more than 50 years and holds memberships with the National Association of Women Artists and the New Hampshire Women Caucus on the Arts and has received numerous accolades. 

Tarbell's work will be on display in the upstairs DPL gallery for the month of November.
