Primarily a printmaker today, Pam Galvani has been a calligrapher for the past 40 years, incorporating gestural marks into her work. Before moving to the Pacific Northwest twenty-five years ago, Pam Galvani and her family lived in many parts of the United States; travel has thus played a major role in expanding her understanding of how art holds meaning across cultures.
Her academic background combines studies in history and graphic design with an active studio practice in lettering and printmaking. She completed her MFA at Vermont College of Art in 2014. Her BA is in history, while her MAT is in history education. Her art has been shown nationally and locally, including the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. She is currently represented by the Island Gallery, and her work is featured in their July show.
During the last ten years, Jan Branham retired to Bainbridge Island after a 35-year career as a public high school art teacher in California. She has since become a full-time printmaker, which she finds very satisfying and artistically nourishing. Jan primarily works using collage and other printmaking techniques such as etching, linocut, woodblock, and collagraph, as well as the mixing of media to satisfy her image curiosity.
Jan currently works with several groups of printmakers as well as being an active member of BARN’s Print Studio. She has been included in a number of local and national shows, from Port Townsend to Brooklyn. Like Pam, Jan’s work is featured this July at Island Gallery on Bainbridge Island.
