Rosa Parks Museum to host exhibit by local artist Pamela Boggs

Posted: Thursday, 02 May 2013

MONTGOMERY — Troy University's Rosa Parks Museum will host an exhibit this month featuring a selection of paintings by local artist Pamela Boggs of Montgomery.

Exploring a wide range of themes and subject matters with a unique visual style, "Truth & Spirit: The Paintings of Pamela Boggs," will be on display inside the exhibit hall from May 6 to June 28.

Part of the long and honored tradition of self-taught artists in Alabama, Boggs' paintings draw viewers into a greater understanding of life's joys, struggles and mysteries through the representation of dreams, visions and events from everyday life, said Daniel Neil, curator of the Rosa Parks Museum.

"Ms. Boggs' compositions draw on her deep personal spiritual convictions and the role that ancestors play in shaping our contemporary lives," Neil said. "The descendant of spiritual teachers from both Saint Kitts B.V.I in the West Indies and the Muskogee peoples (Creek Nation) from Alabama, Ms. Boggs' work resonates with a profound respect for the role that forbearers play in the lives of their children."

The exhibit hall at the Rosa Parks Museum is free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
