A little bit of Frida Kahlo, a lot of Pam Bleakney, Kahlo’s influence can be seen in Bleakney’s art, which also often includes her own image in her pieces and always in the same dress, but the style is all Bleakney. Her art also has a whimsical mix of realism with fantasy. Her pen and ink drawings at the library include toads, lizards and birds. The glassed library display shows the tools she uses in her process, starting with a small art notebook where she plans her final piece down to the smallest detail in miniature to the full size 22-by-3- inch finished pieces that one can get lost in if they take the time to go on the trip.
