Encouraged by her artist parents, Pam Ingalls studied at Accademia Di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy and the art department at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington. She continued independent study with, among others, Ron Lukas, a protégé of Russian-American painter Sergi Bongart.
The influence of the Russian colorist tradition comes through in her rich palette. I enjoy her warmly lit room interiors and in situ still life subjects — particularly those in kitchens.
Ingalls’s work is on display in a show at the Cole Gallery in Edmunds, WA, from today until November 17, 2014.
