We’ve seen her all over town, at plenty of openings. She’s not the kind of person you forget. PDXart had the occasional photo of her posted, yet when I searched through its pages, I could no longer find her.
Pammela Springfield opened a place called Cannibals awhile back, but I think it began to make a dent in the art world when it delivered work to the CAP Auction. That’s when I started walking into galleries and overheard conversations about that wild place on NW 21st and the woman who runs it. But I’ve known Pammela for years – maybe I met her when she hosted a party for the Ramones in ’77, maybe a little earlier.
