Pam Marlene Taylor (she/her) is an artist and curator living in Nashville, TN. After earning a BA in Studio Art and Graphic Design, Pam taught herself to build looms and weave by watching YouTube videos and began her career as a fiber artist weaving tapestries on hand-built looms and exploring the concepts of feminism and death through her work. She is represented by The Red Arrow Gallery in the state of Tennessee and belongs to public collections such as Nashville Metro Arts Lending Library and Women Made Gallery in Chicago, as well as many private collections. Pam is an independent curator and co-curates and co-directs Stay Home Gallery, a home-based contemporary art gallery and artist residency for women and non-binary artists and their families in Paris, Tennessee. She also curates the Museum of Contemporary Art Tree Ornaments and is earning her MS in Counseling/Psychology.   

'In this tedious form of mark-making I braid raffia, braid those braids, and sometimes repeat this braiding process over and over to create strong and textured cords. Starting in one color, the raffia slowly transitions to a different color one strand at a time throughout the tapestry, representing the slow and almost unnoticeable way changes can occur. As both a warning to stay alert to the monotonous clues of change, and a celebration of how much change can take place through small steps, these works each represent a small or large change in my own life.'

in. You have opened my eyes!"

Cheryl | London
