The Edmonds arts community lost a vital member and an incredibly talented artist with the recent passing of Pamela Mummy.

To honor her legacy as an artist, the Mummy family chose to further her contributions to the community by establishing an annual scholarship for art education, and an art awards program, both in partnership with the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation.

For more than 60 years, the foundation has provided post-secondary education visual arts scholarships to qualifying students; a $1,000 scholarship honoring Pamela Mummy is being added to this annual program.

In addition, three $500 awards for outstanding works in the Gallery Art exhibition will be awarded during the 2019 Arts Festival in Mummy’s name. These awards demonstrate her love for classical art and her philosophy of what makes art meaningful and important.

Artistically, Mummy embodied the definition of successful works of art through superior craftsmanship, originality and maturity of style; every piece of her art evokes emotion and timelessness.

The Mummy scholarship and art awards will be given beginning in 2019, and the family hopes to continue the program for years to come.

To donate and assist in keeping Pamela Mummy’s programs going in the future, you can make a donation on Mummy’s GoFundMe page at www.pmummy.com/donate.

The GoFundMe page already more than $18,000 raised in less than a month by the many friends and fellow artists who wish to honor and celebrate Mummy.
