The new owners of Maldonado’s consign furniture, works of art, locally-made candles, and other artisan gifts.

Visit Sellwood and the store during their community side-walk sale on August 9, 2008. I’ll be there painting and showing more pieces on the South corner Tenino and 13th streets.

Spring cleaning the studio

  1. Pam Van Londen's painting studio, spring 2008Since I live in a one-bedroom apartment with my daughter, room is tight. I noticed a week ago, that I had to move several things just to get in and out of the studio area, cutting down on concentration when my rump knocks something over. Ugh.

So, I’ve rearranged the bedroom/livingroom/diningroom/studio area and found much more room! I now have three easels standing ready and have a small workspace for writing notes.

Hanging About Town this month

I’m hanging about 40 paintings in three locations in April:

  • Fidelity National Title | 435 NW 5th Street, Corvallis
  • Sameritan Health’s Cancer Center | Elks Drive, Corvallis
  • The Grace Center | 980 NW Spruce, Corvallis

Office hours vary for these locations, so call ahead before driving there to view them.

Press Release ~ Landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes

Landscapes, Seascapes, and Cityscapes on display at Corvallis Montessori School

June 23, 2006 Corvallis, Oregon — Artist Pam Van Londen is showing acrylic landscapes, seascapes, and cityscapes this summer in the new lobby gallery of Corvallis Montessori School on Greeley Street behind the Garden Center. CMS is open for visitors 8:30am to 5:00pm weekdays throughout its summer arts camp program.

Van Londen returned in May from 8 months of traveling the country by motorhome. She and her daughter toured 24 states, stopping frequently to paint, take photographs, write poetry, and visit art galleries and museums.

Landscapes, Seascapes, and Cityscapes on display at Corvallis Montessori School

Mostly working en plein air, Van Londen captured the diversity of terrain and architecture seen as one travels from the wet West, the dry Southwest, and the swampy South.

The most inspirational galleries and museums visited by Van Londen include the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and Metropolitan in NYC, the National Gallery of Art in DC, O’Keefe Museum in Santa FE, New Mexico, and Judy Chicago’s Foundation and Studio in Belen, New Mexico.

“I was inspired by the number of women-only art coops with galleries around the country; they spring up in the smallest of towns; offering art to many rural areas where it may seem like there is little high art happening,” says Van Londen.

Van Londen teaches courses for Oregon State University’s Women Studies and Computer Science programs in addition to providing marketing consulting, web development, and graphic design services to local businesses.
