June: Pamela Staker

Pamela Staker is a Chicago-based contemporary artist. She examines abstraction through a compiled visual language of urban elements, geometric shapes, bold color combinations, and pops of nature. Her process is energetic, creating works that are animated fragments of modern life – sometimes messy, often beautiful.

Staker started out as a math major at the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign but soon migrated to the art department, where she graduated with a BFA in Painting. Staker 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. Her work is represented in numerous private and corporate collections including The Sophy Hyde Park, Chicago, The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Vanderbilt University, and Cascade Hills Country Club, Grand Rapids, Michigan. The artist recently relocated her studio to The Bridgeport Art Center (BAC) in Chicago and is available by appointment, or once a month at the BAC Third Friday Open Studio Events.
