The Upper Crust at 7 East Market St. in Georgetown is currently exhibiting award-winning folk artist Pamella Bounds-Seemans, who was born in Milton, has a home there and currently lives in Wilmington. Her colorful art is known as fun, funky and folk, and uses plenty of jewel-encrusted frame color.
Bounds-Seemans is known for painting local scenes as well as creative, whimsical, beach-themed works. Fish, mermaids and seahorses are among some of her creations. Her exhibit will continue until mid-May.
She has exhibited throughout her 30-year career in New Mexico, Virginia, Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach. Her work can be found at the Tideline Gallery in Rehoboth Beach and Blue Streak Gallery in Wilmington.
Bounds-Seemans’ mother had much influence on her life and work. Her mother’s home was like a folk art museum, and her whimsical outside art is a liberation from the simplicity that often defined its traditional form. In addition to being an artist, Bounds-Seemans and her husband have raised three children.
She has had numerous awards, been in many publications and has made a number of television appearances. Her work can be found included in several collections in Washington, D.C.; Baltimore, Md.; Wilmington; and Family Court of Delaware, as well as private collections throughout the United States, Europe and Japan.
Her professional affiliations include the Rehoboth Art League and the DCCA of Wilmington. She can be contacted at 302-994-6343 for customized work.
