Focus on Pam Foley – Sculptor & Tutor
On Saturday 25 April, Sunningwell School of Art joined a virtual celebration of sculpture during the sixth, annual International Sculpture Day, or ISDay. What better way was there to celebrate, than recognise the work of our very own sculpture students, imaginatively led by dedicated sculptor and tutor, Pam Foley.
Pam Foley – Sculptor and Tutor
This is my 12th year as a tutor of Life Sculpture at Sunningwell School of Art. I’m delighted that the art school is involved for the first time with International Sculpture Day #ISDay.
Abstraction from the human figure is the consistent theme in my work. I sculpt to evoke certain emotions, feelings, or experiences.
Recurring recent themes include solitude (apt during this time of the coronavirus pandemic), and sorrow.
Hundreds of people joined us on ISDay to celebrate all things sculptural by dropping in to our virtual sculpture exhibition to see works created over a 10 week period at Sunningwell School of Art. These sculptures were produced just prior to COVID-19 lockdown) by our advanced sculpture students and students at the beginning of their life sculpture journey, all under the attentive and skilful guidance of Pam Foley.
Two women sculptors of the 20th Century online course
Pam would love you to continue celebrating #ISDay by participating in her new online course focusing on 2 Women Sculptors of the 20th Century, who use and portray the human form in their art, Niki de Saint Phalle and Malvina Hoffman. The five week course starts on Tuesday the 9th June at 9:30am and finishes on Saturday 7th July.
