Upcoming Exhibitions 2017

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!

Pamela.

News

I have recently returned from Italy where I was participating in an exhibition called “Bibliomosaico”at Edizioni del Girazole, Ravenna, Italy,  October- November 2013

The Exhibition Bibiliomosaico was conceived by Rosetta Berardi in 2009. It is a thematic exhibition with the intention of stimulating mosaic artists to think about the shape of a book and to create a book object.

My work is titled Mr Logomania.

The other exciting thing I did, was participate in Mosaik Yarismasi, Gaziantep Museum, Gaziantep,  Republic of Turkey, November 2013. I feel very honored to be among the group of artists invited to participate in this event. My sincere thanks to Suha Semerci for organising this wonderful event in Gaziantep.

MOSAIC and ART TOUR of ITALY September 2013

TO ALL Art Enthusiasts, makers or lovers of art!

 

 

WE, that is John (my brother) and I are very excited to be planning a boutique art and mosaic tour to Italy with Trekset Tours, in the September holidays in 2013.

The tour is designed to be structured in the mornings with afternoons free for you to explore or go shopping…or eat gelato….and then reconnect in the evenings.

It will be limited to 12-15 people. 

We think the mix of places and things to do will be entertaining and informative. One feature of it is a cooking class in a beautiful Tuscan Farm house where we will spend the night!

May 6th Workshop

Hello To All Vic/Tas Maanz Members and others,
 
Due to the success of the Spontaneous Mosaic Workshop with Pamela Irving we are doing it again on the 06th of May 2012, please note: this time the Workshop will be held at the Beaumaris Art Group Studio, Reserve Road, Beaumaris, (behind the Beaumaris Library) Melways map 86 D/6 see attached Flyer for more details.
 
For those of you who missed this workshop when it was held on the 15th of April now is your chance to experience a very different way of mosaicing…some comments from the last workshop were….”It was the best workshop ever” and “I loved it” but everyone agreed they had never done anything quite like it before.
 
Word to the wise don’t bother asking anyone who attended the last workshop what they did on the day, they are all swore to secrecy so as not to spoil it for the next lot of participants…
 
RSVP to me at smulgold@bigpond.com by the 04th May 2012.
 
cheers,
Jean Smullen
Maanz Victorian Secretary
