Pamela Wildermuth donates 'Summer Rain' to the BVS Spring Art Show
BVS Cultural Arts Presents
Pamela Wildermuth is an artist in Bear Valley Springs who has the great luck to live in a beautiful area and to create beautiful art. Her specialty is "equine art" and she has painted or drawn commissioned pieces since the mid-1960s. She has won numerous awards for her art, including a Best Drawing at the 21st International Miniature Show (2012), a 1st Place Gold Medal for Drawing at the San Dimas Festival of Arts (2016), and an Award of Special Merit at the San Dimas Festival of Arts (2017).
"Summer Rain" is a graphite drawing on 100% cotton board, matted, and framed with archival materials. Pamela favors this for her drawings because it creates a piece of art that will likely outlast an oil painting. The horse in the drawing is named Khameron. He is an Arabian horse that belonged to her late husband, Jack. Jack was well known in the BVS area. He served two terms as a member of the BVSA Board of Directors, and an ECC volunteer until his passing in 2015.
Some members of Pamela's family have lived in this area since before her great-grandfather's name appeared on the 1880 census records. She still has family in Tehachapi, most notably her cousin, Margie Owens, wife of Kelcy Owens. Kelcy's Café had been a meeting place for Tehachapi residents for many years until it closed recently.
The BVSCAA 34th Annual Spring Art Show will be on Sunday, March 25 from 4 to 7 p.m. It is located in the Oak Tree Country Club on North Lower Valley Road. The Gala Opening will offer refreshments, art to ogle, artists to discuss their work, raffle tickets and the drawing (at 6 p.m.), and docents to help in the purchase of fine art. You may get your tickets at the door for 1/$2 or 12/$20. Entrance to the show is $10/non-members and free for members. All proceeds go to the support of local art through a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit.
