Principal, Stephen Young, accepts painting donation from Pamela Miller

On March 8, artist, Pamela Malabre Miller, generously donated her painting, January Afternoon Moon, to New Hope-Solebury High School. Pamela’s son, Tim, had attended New Hope-Solebury schools since kindergarten and graduated in 2006. “I’m giving the painting to the library as a thumbs-up to the district, teachers and principal, Dr. Young,” remarked Pamela. “This painting is award-winning and has been quite successful for me. It’s a pleasure to have it on display in the high school library.”

Pamela received both a bachelor of Arts degree in Art and a teacher certificate in Art Education from Northland College in Wisconsin. She has been painting with pastels for over twenty years and has won numerous awards for her paintings, as well as her ceramics. January Afternoon Moon has won the Radcliffe Gallery Award for Traditional Bucks County Landscape in 2009 at the Phillips Mill 80th Annual Fall Show and an award from the Lambertville House given at the 29th annual Lambertville and the Surrounding Area winter show. It was also accepted into the first juried art show for the New Hope Art League held at the Prallsville Mill, Stockton, NJ in 2010.

January Afternoon Moon is a scene of hayrolls on Kitchens Lane in Solebury before it became a housing community. “I like to compose landscapes defined by intense color and the changing light of day,” said Pamela. “Many of my landscapes represent the round shape in the familiar form of the hayroll. These hayrolls are part of the local New Hope scene that will soon disappear.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have this beautiful painting on display in our library,” said principal, Stephen Young.
