Founder of Gallery 621, a co-op for contemporary artists in Benicia, Pam Dixon began her career in free-lance commercial and industrial art, later becoming a serious exhibiting artist in the 80′s.
Dixon’s checkered life history – a mad-cap mixture of Hollywood, Carmel and San Francisco “contribute to (her) inspired playfulness and sense of poignancy as refreshing as a blast of fresh air”, Mark Van Proyen. Art Week.
Currently represented by John Natsoulas Gallery in Davis, Dixon has also recently been working on casting at the Sacramento Art Foundry. She was a member of the Berkeley Potters Studio before joining Jerry Epperson in his ceramics studio in Crockett where she now works with Ruby Wolfman.
Dixon was guest artist working in the Sacramento studio of Tony Natsoulas from 2013-2014. She was a driving force in bringing an incredible array of ceramic talent to Benicia in Transmigrational: Ceramics from the Corridor, the opening exhibition of the Benicia Museum of Art project in 2014. In 2015 she was also included in the publications Why Make Art by Hedi Desuyo, Kurt Fishback’s 51 Women Artists. Past publications and their companion exhibitions include Excor: Revival of Exquisite Corpse, the Art of Chanceby Sherry Parker. Notable exhibitions (from a long list) include two retrospectives: Richmond Art Center, Un-Still-Lifes: Pami Fat Face and her Friends, and San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, San Hosay Portrait.
