Come and have a look at someone else's backyard
Don't miss Pamela's latest exhibit, "In My Backyard"
Visual Artist, Pamela Gough, would like to invite you to her 2014 solo exhibition - "In My Backyard". This is an exhibition of new works featuring Brisbane icons such as mango trees, quaint worker's cottages, beautiful old Queenslanders, corrugated iron roofs, Hills Hoists and fence palings.
These amazing pieces of art require much more than a quick viewing. Standing in front of one of Pamela's paintings you feel drawn into her scenes and a real sense of "Home". Winding paths, steep streets, side gates, telegraph poles and television towers sitting atop Mt Coot-tha are all to be discovered in these snapshots of Pamela's home town. The clever use of beautiful old maps add a touch of whimsy, whilst Celtic symbols woven into the scenes stand testament to the artist's Celtic origins. Take your time and look into these paintings and you'll be surprised at the detail and what you find in amongst the beautiful colors that this award winning artist uses.
Take your time and see what you discover in these beautiful pieces of art
Pamela has a strong passion for preserving colonial architectures and believes her works scratch at the surface of life to reveal the spirit of the place. She says, "Beneath what we can see, are the dreams and plans of those who have gone before us, those who lived and loved and built up the environment that we are gifted with today."
The exhibition, "In My Backyard", will be held at Graydon Gallery, 29 Merthyr Road, New Farm. Mark the 27th of June in your diaries and come along to the Opening Night from 6pm - 9pm.
Can't make opening night? Then how about Sunday Morning Tea on June 29th from 10am until 12 noon? The exhibition will be running from Thursday, 26th June until Sunday 6th July. Graydon Gallery is open from 10am - 6pm daily, or by appointment.
