"Dinner's Almost Ready" by Pam Ingalls
An exhibit of oil paintings by Gonzaga University alumna Pam Ingalls titled “Pam Ingalls: Ah Life!” will be on display in the Arcade Gallery of the Jundt Art Museum at Gonzaga from March 28 through July 31.
Ingalls, who lives and works on Vachon Island, Wash., began her education when she studied with her father, Richard Ingalls, who helped establish Gonzaga’s art department. She studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy and returned home to earn her Bachelor of Arts degree from Gonzaga in 1979. Ingalls, who describes her work as painting “. . . the beauty of everyday things,” captures a moment in time with her brightly colored interiors and portraits.
Ingalls has exhibited in more than 125 national and international juried shows, where she has won more than 60 prizes. Her work has been shown in 28 states and is represented in numerous national and international collections.
A free public reception for the artist will be held in the Jundt Art Museum, beginning at 6:15 p.m., Thursday, March 27. Ingalls will speak about her work the same evening at 7:30 pm in the Jundt Auditorium. Both events are open to the public.
Continuing in the Jundt Galleries through April 2 is “Face to Face,” an exhibition featuring over 175 prints drawn from the permanent collection and private collectors, focusing on the face as the primary imagery.
Admission to the Jundt Art Museum is free and open to the public. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and Saturday noon -4 p.m. Closed Sundays and university holidays. It will be closed for holidays May 24-26 and July 4-7.
