Visual Artist Pamela Dodds Receives Major Grant

Sometimes Murray Hill Group member Pamela Dodds receives major grant. Congrats Pamela!

Painter/ printmaker Pamela Dodds has been awarded a $25,000 Individual Support Grant from the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation.

Ms. Dodds' large-scale, colorful, representational paintings are reflections on American society, depicting complex emotional moments in human relationships. Recent paintings were on exhibit at Asterisk Gallery in May 2007. Her black-and-white figurative lino-cut prints have been shown at Brandt Gallery, most recently in September 2007.

Pamela Dodds moved to Cleveland from Boston, MA in 2004, having also lived here briefly as a teenager. Born and raised in Canada, she attended Brandeis University in Massachusetts where she studied with the late figurative painter Paul Georges, graduating in 1983. Recently she has been dividing her time between Cleveland and Toronto, Canada.

The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation was established by American artist Adolph Gottlieb (1903-1974) and his wife Esther. The foundation provides large grants to ‘serious, fully-committed artists,' ‘regardless of their level of commercial success.' This year the foundation received 482 applications from which twelve artists were selected to receive awards.
