Pamela Hadley

Portland, OR


Pamela Hadley is a time-based light artist based in Portland, OR. Using projected minimalist abstract animations while considering or constructing architectural forms, they create immersive environments. Hadley is interested in how embodied viewing changes the scale of time and place and makes us witnesses to the divorce of contemporary culture from these basic realities. Believing that phenomenological experience can be an agent of social change, they seek to make these experiences available to everyone.

An active member of the Portland, OR art community, Hadley is a member of Carnation Contemporary, WAVE Collective, and Borderline Salon. Hadley has participated in exhibitions and artist residencies across the US. They are a 2024 recipient of a Regional Arts Art3C Grant for their upcoming solo show & recently co-curated the show, “Cuts Across: Artists Respond to Lived Intersections,” both at Carnation Contemporary. Hadley will be a resident with the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology later in 2024 and has upcoming shows with SOIL Gallery and The Vestibule, both in Seattle, WA, as well as the Bush House Museum, Salem, OR. Hadley earned an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL, and a BFA from the Corcoran College of Art and Design, Washington, DC.
