Department of Art and Art History

Pamela W. TollMs. Pamela Wallace Toll graduated with a degree in English and Art from the University of NC at Chapel Hill. She earned a B.F.A. in Painting at East Carolina University.

In 1991 Toll co-founded Acme Art Studios, a work place for artists, which also hosts art events and exhibitions, most recently in conjunction with the Wilmington Fourth Friday Gallery Crawl.

After a profound painting experience at a painting colony in former monastery, St. Joakim Osogovoski, Macedonia, Ms Toll resolved to bring Macedonian artists to NC. In 1998 she and two partners established the No Boundaries International Art Colony whose mission is to lay aside national boundaries in favor of cross cultural exchange. Since then, over 150 artists from Europe, Africa, South America, Australia, Asia and North America have participated. No Boundaries publishes a catalogue, sponsors educational outreach, and widely exhibits paintings made during the project.

In 2007 Ms. Toll participated in Paint a Future; in Florianopolis, Brazil, and Rully, France. Over the past two years she donated a dozen paintings to the organization. The sale of two paintings provided new homes for families of the young artists whose hopeful drawings inspired her paintings.

Toll’s work is represented in various collections including Casoria Contemporary Art Museum in Naples, Italy, Yildiz Technical University in Istanbul,Turkey, Art Pointe Gumno and St. Joakim Osgovoski in Macedonia, Simposio Internacional de Artistas en Noja, Spain, Cameron Art Museum, and Bald Head Island Corporation in NC.

Images of several of her works were chosen for the cover and inside art pages of UNCW’s literary Journal, Ecotone in 2005. A triptych of mixed media drawings entitled Listening was part of Art and Social Conscience: Holocaust, a response by contemporary UNCW faculty artists to the Holocaust, at the Cameron Art Museum in 2008.

In 2008, Ms. Toll was invited to participate in Simposio Internacional de Artistas en Noja, Spain.

In 2009, she was nominated for a United States Artists Fellowship.
