Harween’s paintings at Melrose library
MELROSE, April 1 – The Melrose Public Library is now displaying in its atrium, the paintings of community artist, Pam Harween.
Born and raised in Miami, Harween earned a bachelor’s in fine arts from Florida International University.
During her 13-year teaching career in the Miami-Dade Public School System, Harween’s artwork was exhibited at the Kennedy Library in Hialeah and became the subject of a Miami Herald article, which led to her appearance on the PBS program–Something on 17.
More of her works were displayed throughout the county’s galleries, outdoor shows, and libraries.
After relocating to Bradford County in 2001, Harween taught art in Clay County Schools for the next eight years while continuing to create more landscapes, abstracts and images of wildlife. During her time in North Florida, her work has received top honors at various festivals and fairs, including Best in Show at Starke’s Strawberry Festival.
Harween is now retired from teaching and feels that she has the best of both worlds–time to actively pursue her art and opportunities to teach art students in the community.
Harween’s works will be on display in the library during April, May and June.
