Local painter Plam honored by magazine

August 18, 2002

Olga Plam, a Boulder artist who works exclusively with oil paints, is brushing up against success once again. The Russian-born painter, whose piece "Orchids" appeared on the cover of Southwest Art magazine in December, is a finalist in the "still life" category of the 2002 Artist's Magazine annual art competition. Her work was chosen from more than 13,000 pieces and will be featured in the magazine's December issue.

After studying painting in Russia, Plam immigrated to the United States in 1977, where she began working as a graphic artist. She began to paint again in the early '90s. Since then she has won numerous awards and is currently a member of the Oil Painters of America and American Women Artists Association, organizations concerned with excellence in representational art.
