Artist Pam Chadick-Aloisa
Pam Chadick Aloisa received her BFA degree from the University of Southern Mississippi, focusing on painting which has remained her primary medium. Before that, she obtained art scholarships at two private universities, majoring in art, but relocating from Iowa to Arizona and moving with her assignments in the military. Since 1981, her works have been exhibited in numerous exhibits.
Pam lived in Norway for three years, earning her MA degree; she studied under Ida Lorentzen, a well-known Norwegian painter. The Symbolist painters and German and Viennese Expressionists became her primary inspiration along with American and European modernists. Her MFA degree was earned at Rutgers University, in New Jersey, studying under Leon Golub, Judith Brodsky, and Joan Semmel. In 1991, Pam joined the faculty at the Air Force Academy, where she works as the sole art professor and Director of the art gallery. She teaches drawing, painting, and seminar courses in art history. She has curated over 140 exhibits for the gallery.
Pam’s recent art merges expressionist style with pop art style, featuring figures in settings that evoke deeper contemplation. Her works continue to be exhibited in invitational, juried, and solo exhibits across the country and in private collections nationwide and abroad.
