COME INTO MY GARDEN WITH PAM KENT

Local artist Pamela Kent invites local art and botanical lovers to experience her new exhibition at ArtSpace at Griffith Regional Theatre.

Come into My Garden opened on Sunday, 6 October, and is a selection of photographs, photogravures and cyanotypes exploring elements of her garden through the seasons.

Pamela’s garden is both a passion and a retreat from the everyday, and visitors can expect to see stunningly dramatic monochromatic and colour botanical images, reflecting its various manifestations.

Regional Art Gallery Curator, Ray Wholohan said, “This is Pamela’s second ArtSpace exhibition, after her very successful exhibition here in 2018. Pamela has exhibited locally at Griffith Regional Art Gallery in exhibitions such a Flower Power and Objects of Desire and was part of a group exhibition at the Brett Naseby Gallery in 2014.”

“Pamela has a passion and flair for the art forms of photography and printmaking and has spent considerable time studying these mediums over the past few years. This has resulted in her being part of a group of printmakers from the Baldessin Print Studio in Victoria, who are exhibiting at Montsalvat Gallery in Eltham,” Mr Wholohan said.

“Pam’s work has a freshness and accessibility which makes it very aesthetically appealing. Her compositional process is beautifully articulated and her discipline in the applications of photomedia and printmaking is striking. Visitors to ArtSpace will be enchanted by this fresh, thoughtful, atmospheric and accessible body of contemporary art by a rising local artist.”
