Oxford Cultural Arts Announces New Art Display

Fiber arts works of Pamela Blasko on display at Town Hall.

The Oxford Cultural Arts Commission is pleased to showcase the works of Fiber Artist and Oxford resident Pamela Blasko.

Pamela Blasko has been teaching fiber arts for more than 16 years. The love of fiber arts brought her to Spain on behalf of the Spanish Government. She was able to spread her knowledge of felting and fiber arts to the Village of Benaulauria.

She lives on a small farm with her husband Mike. The farm raises wool producing animals so that Pam may create fun and whimsical handspun yarns and felted items. When she spins her yarns, only the finest quality materials are used. Her favorite yarns to spin are art yarns with bold colors, usually big and bulky and full of character. She always creates from raw fiber from the farm that she processes by hand. Both wet felting techniques and needle felting techniques are used to create one of kind clothing items, boxes, rugs, and framed wall art.

Her fiber arts are sold on www.pamsfiber.Etsy.com, and in local stores; The Valley General Store Seymour, Alpaca Hill Farm Shop Seymour, The Barn on Flanders Rd Woodbury. You can also call 203-218-0508 to schedule a visit to their farm, Dream Come True Farm.

The Exhibit is in the Meeting room at the Stephen B. Church Memorial Town Hall at 486 Oxford Road, and opened for viewing as of March 5 through March 29. The show can be seen from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. every Monday through Thursday. Monday and Thursday evenings, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. when meeting room is not in use.

Oxford Cultural Arts Commission’s mission is to promote, develop, and encourage artistic and cultural activities in the Town of Oxford and to foster an appreciation for, and widespread community involvement in, the arts in Oxford. For more information on the exhibits visit their website; www.oxfordculturalarts.org or email events@oxfordculturalarts.org.

Pam is a remarkable artist who created in fiber and other materials. I have enjoyed visits to her farm and own some of her beautiful glass jewelery. Congratulations Pam.
