July 2014 Cover

“County Fair"

Pamm Douglas is an award-winning artist from Scottsville, Ky. whose home and life is full of art portraying life and those she loves. She has won critical and commercial success, and her ribbon count continues to grow with every show she enters. The cover of this month’s SOKY won first place in acrylics at the Scottsville Summer’s End Art Show and was purchased by Laura Turner, great-granddaughter of the founders of the Dollar General empire. One of her most recent ribbons was at the US Bank art show with an acrylic entitled “Sunlight Siren.” She may be contacted via email at pammray@nctc.com.
