A belated Happy 2017 to all my friends, clients and followers.
It has been a while since my website has been updated and that is currently underway by Toni from 2aT Startup. 2017 is a big year for me and I am very excited about the plans ahead.
I am currently working towards two big solo exhibitions in Melbourne. The first is “Irreverent Tales”, an exhibition being organised by the City of Whitehorse’s ARTSPACE Gallery. This exhibition will contain some of my early works from 1984 to recent paintings, prints and mosaics, some of the works have not previously been shown in Australia. One work is being loaned from Museum Victoria and has not been seen publicly since 1992. I am looking forward to being reunited with it again. The exhibition promotion by the City of Whitehorse reads…
“Renowned for her humour and quirky mischievous characters, Pamela Irving’s Irreverent Tales is an entertaining and witty exhibition, destined to evoke smiles from delighted patrons. Her enthralling Yolo Man will be displayed alongside His Apocalyptic Alphabet with intriguing references to famous artworks throughout art history. …”
I will be giving a public talk on the 22nd of July at ARTSPACE, located at the Box Hill Town Hall.
My other public exhibition will be at Without Pier Gallery in Bay Rd, Cheltenham. This large solo show will be from the 10th – 24th September 2017. I am very excited to be joining Without Pier who have been representing contemporary Australian Artists since 1995.
Please email me if you would like to receive an invite to either of these exhibitions or to join the mailing list for all my events.
My Studio + Gallery is open most days, but best to call or make an appointment to view works available. My number at the studio is (03) 9557 2688. Saturdays is a good day to visit if you just want to browse. I am at 68 Patterson Rd, Bentleigh which is just off the Nepean Highway near Dendy Park, Brighton. If coming by train get off at Patterson Station which is on the Frankston line. Check out the mosaic underpass as you arrive.
In the Gallery I have a new range of prints available. They can be purchased online or come into the studio to see them. They are limited editioned prints, hand signed and numbered, editions of 30 only.
Looking forward to seeing you in 2017!
