Pamela is the owner of Works A Gallery, a Chattanooga-based contemporary art gallery that offers a fine selection of original paintings, photography, prints and sculpture. This is Pamela’s third art gallery in a span of 20 years – her first of two successful galleries in Miami, Florida the "alternative" gallery, T. Curtsnoc Fine Arts showed predominately sculpture.  The second gallery, Structures, was located right in the heart of Miami's Wynwood Arts District where sculpture was normally set in a 5,000 sq ft warehouse setting. Pamela first began her career working in the investment banking arena, with her last position with the boutique firm of Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette.

Pamela is married to John R. Henry, an internationally renowned sculptor. She has been involved in developing and managing his business, exhibitions and travels. Through these experiences she has learned an extensive amount of, “art history by travels”.

Pamela’s most recent endeavor has been her contribution to the development of Sculpture Fields at Montague Park, a 33 acre, non-profit international sculpture park made possible through a private and City  partnership. Free to the public, the park will be open 7 days a week from dawn until dusk beginning on April 8, 2016.   After 16-years of planning, Sculpture Fields will celebrate its Grand Opening on  April 8 & 9 of 2016. Phase I,  17acres  of the 33 acre development has been completed.  Visitors Center (Phase II) and Outdoor Amphitheater (Phase III) are quick on the heels for development.  When completed it will be a major green space for the City of Chattanooga.

Regarding Pamela’s love for art, “Fortunately for me, all of the great artists that I manage are mostly my friends. Their stories are just as strong and powerful as the careers that they have built. Sometimes I feel like a docent in a museum, telling the tales that go with their lives and careers but from a personal perspective.  It is my greatest joy to share these moments in their lives, it will enlighten all to hear about the triumphs and challenges that face artists on a daily basis.   I am very passionate about the artists I have selected - who they are, and why they create.  Their life's work add to our visual landscape, and will be here long after we exist .. Art is eternal.”

Works A Gallery is located in the historic 1920’s NickaJack Hosiery Mill located in Chattanooga’s thriving Southside.
