Anna Miller’s Inner Light: In a Time of Pandemic, is a celebration of the human spirit through abstraction. Filled with bright colors and energized forms, this group of paintings represents an exploration of the artist’s personal development in the midst of struggle. Inspired by the natural beauty of St. Johns County, Miller’s series interprets these surroundings through the poetic and metaphorical expression of semi-abstract imagery. Sub-tropical flowers and plants, stormy skies, and the drama and power of the ocean and sun inform the artist’s visual language consisting of geometric shapes, refracted light patterns, and dynamic lines. Exhibition July 2 to August 13, 2021 at the Lightner Museum, located at 75 King St. in historic downtown, St Augustine, FL

Loretta Leto, PAM Jam Coordinator: “The vision for PAM Jam is to have poets, artists and musicians collaborate and partner with organizations in their community to inspire artistic expression, provide hope and healing, and help local businesses recover from a worldwide pandemic,” said Coordinator Loretta Leto, “The original focus was on hospitals, schools, and nursing homes, but really any organization that wants to do a PAM Jam should contact us through the website.”
Cindy Wilson, PAM Jam 2020 Artist Coordinator
“For most of the artists, myself included, the artist-poet pairing was our first exposure to a cross-discipline collaboration. The “how” to approach the process was purposely undefined, encouraging each pair to explore uniquely, and has opened new creative pathways for many of the artists. For me, the experience has been profound. I was paired with poet Antonette Libro. Her keen observations and choice of words in her poetry continues to inspire and nudge me into previously unexplored subjects. I am so grateful to be involved in this project.”
Chris Bodor, PAM Jam 2020 Poetry Coordinator “I am so blessed to be a part of the inaugural PAM Jam.”
