John Brock Art Alcove

July-August 2021 

The Art Alcove features a joint show of two different artists for the months of July and August.

Pamela Armentano is a watercolor artist living in Dunedin. She has enjoyed art since kindergarten. Throughout the years, she’s both taken classes and taught herself. In September of 2012, she drove into beautiful Florida and left Connecticut behind. Since then, she’s painted and painted.  Her work explores colors and their relationships to each other, as well as the beautiful way watercolor flows and mingles. She says, “While there are challenges, there are also happy accidents. I paint because I love to. It brings me joy. I like happy paintings.”   She hopes you enjoy her paintings as much as she’s enjoyed creating them.  To reach out to Pamela, please contact her at 203-305-2006.
