Senior Lecturer, Painting, Drawing

Cameron (Cami) Davis (b. 1954 Bridgeport, CT.) is a Senior Lecturer and teaches Painting, Drawing, Perspectives on Making, and Environmental Art. She received her M.F.A. in Painting from Pratt Institute in 1981 and B.A. in Studio Art from the University of Vermont, in 1976; with postgraduate studies in ecological theory from Schumacher College, Devon, UK in 1998 and 2015. Davis has attended artist residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and Banff Centre for the Arts Alberta, Canada, and has exhibited throughout Vermont, New York, and San Diego. She is in private and public collections nationally. Davis is the recipient of the Lee Krasner – Jackson Pollock Foundation grant for painting, and Argosy Foundation and Puffin Foundation grants for painting in collaboration with composer Sam Guarnaccia. She considers her paintings, installations and community environmental art projects to be her primary vehicle for exploring issues of conscious perception as fundamental to navigating life in a warming and warring world. Her community art activist projects have followed the climate change movement for the last decade. She is interested in exploring wholistic aesthetics as a contributing factor towards cultivating the transition to a life affirming future. Davis is a member of the ecoartnetwork.org.
