Find the way back home - at the Graydon Gallery
Brisbane born visual artist, Pamela Gough's upcoming solo exhibition, titled "The Way Back Home", will be one not to miss. This exhibition draws upon family origins and traditions - transporting viewers back to their own family roots.
Inspired by her journey back to her own family origins, where she explored the Celtic and medieval influences in her family history, Pamela's new exhibition portrays the stories behind many of our homes and our connectedness to lands far away.
Pamela's unique style brings the crisp white walls at Graydon Gallery to life with her paintings and sketches that depict beautiful old Queensland homes, interwoven with old maps, Celtic symbols and typically Brisbane landscapes. These are paintings that challenge you to take your time and look carefully amongst the textured paint - you will be surprised at the intricate detail you'll discover and may find yourself thinking "this could be my family's story"!
Don't miss this beautiful exhibition. Those who follow Pamela's work will recognize again her love of historical housing and the city she calls home. This will be her seventh solo exhibition and promises to be exciting and thought provoking and is likely to instill in you a desire to learn more about your family's heritage and origins.
As Pamela says, "Beneath what we see are the plans and dreams of those who have gone before us and built up the environment we are blessed with today."
Whilst the exhibition will run from Thursday, 29th October until Sunday 8th November, opening night will be Friday, 30th October, from 6pm - 9pm. Alternatively, you may like to call in for a browse and Sunday Morning Tea on Sunday, 1st November from 10am - 12 noon.
Visit Graydon Gallery and enjoy the journey as you find "The Way Back Home".
