Pamela Campbell Smith
Pam entered her first art competition submitting a perspective drawing of the National Bank of Jackson at 9 years old! And as they say the rest is history. Pam completed her first BA degree with certification to teach high school art, second BA for Interior Design and third BA in Architecture. Pam and her husband Peter Smith opened their architecture practice in 1978 with projects from Maine to Houston. She founded CAMP ARCH-KID-TECH, a summer week- long architecture camp for children 12-17 in 1994. For her 50th birthday a friend suggested she take a Nantucket basket class offered at the DAA, and over the next few years she entered baskets in the Marshfield Fair crafts division and in 2010 to the DAA Midsummer Arts Show where she was awarded Best of Show for her Nantucket sewing basket. Pam has enjoyed teaching Nantucket basket classes, along with her sister Patty Campbell, at the DAA since 2008.

Marcia Ballou
"I am a collage artist.
I work to employ both deliberate and spontaneous appliqués.
I begin the composition with a simple color pencil plan on paper.
On the canvas or board the color of light and atmosphere is applied with intuitive gestures with paint.
I then sift through a collection of painted papers and cloth.
The pieces are cut and torn and applied with acrylic medium and enhanced with acrylic paint>
My compositions are enlivened by the unexpected combination of materials.
The patterns create blossoms of textures on the surface of the painting.
My goal is to evoke joy."
