Pam Cabañas:

"Working the Waters"

August 11 - September 5, 2022


Pam Cabañas

Born in Brooklyn, NY, artist Pam Cabañas lives and works in the mid-coast village of Friendship, Maine. Pam is well known for her evocative works in watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, and ink. Her paintings create a haunting portrait of the artist’s relationship with the harsh, yet beautiful coast of Maine. Working primarily with a subtle or monochromatic palette, Cabañas’ intent is to integrate an artistic view with a sense of place, time, and pending change. Pam holds advanced degrees in art and art education from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University and The University of New Mexico. Pam and her son Eli own and operate Salt Pond Studio in East Friendship. This studio/gallery occupies what once was the East Friendship School House built circa 1850 and later became the Stone-Scott Watson VFW Post. A cold winter breaks to spring when the skiff goes overboard and Pam can continue her quest to connect her respect for the beauty and harsh reality of coastal Maine with the mediums of fine art.


“Cabañas’ drawings are uncompromising – all the more engaging and beautiful because they are true.”

Alan Magee.
