Archive of Exhibition Invitations

The following images are invitations to exhibitions in which I have shown my paintings and drawings since I began exhibiting in 1981.

'Three Christchurch Artists and a Wellington Poet' - Antipodes Gallery, Wellington.

‘Three Christchurch Artists and a Wellington Poet’ – Antipodes Gallery, Wellington.

“Three Christchurch Artists and a Wellington Poet”.  The Christchurch artists consist of Max Podstolski (my brother) Clare Reilly (my sister-in-law) and me.  The Wellington Poet is my sister, Jeannie Beauchamp.  This was at Antipodes Gallery, Wellington, New Zealand in 1981.  My contribution was a series of crayon drawings of Christchurch and Wellington landscapes and urbanscapes.

In 1990 I responded to a call by Elizabeth Cregan, a Sydney artist who was looking for another artist to exhibit with.  I exhibited a series of oil landscapes of New Zealand and Australia.  This was a self-managed exhibition in Balmain, Sydney.

I still haven’t managed to get a photo of one of my art works on any invitations so far! “Look Listen See” in 1992 was a series of oil landscapes of New Zealand.  I was living in Australia but homesick for New Zealand so continued to paint nostalgic landscapes.  This show was at Merilyn Savill Gallery in Wellington.

"Seeing the Light" an exhibition of oil paintings at Gadfly Gallery, 1999.

My brother, Max, and I had a joint show at Gadfly Gallery in Perth in 2000.  The ‘Poles Apart’ title was a play on words as we are half Polish and also our styles are diametrically opposed.  In this show I was exhibiting in pencils as well as oils.

'Street Theatre' at Fremantle Arts Centre, 2004.

‘Street Theatre’ at Fremantle Arts Centre, 2004.

“Street Theatre” was an exhibition of coloured pencil drawings at Fremantle Arts Centre in 2004.  (If you look under ‘works’ in my website you will see the ‘Street Theatre’ series.)  I was looking at urban images including street art and graffiti.

"Geisha Then and Now" at Gallery East, 2005.

“Geisha Then and Now” at Gallery East, 2005.

At Gallery East in North Fremantle I exhibited a series of five drawings of geisha in contemporary Kyoto.  The biggest portion of the exhibition was a collection of original Japanese prints from the 18th and 19th centuries…hence the title of the exhibition.

"Spirited Away" exhibition at The Old Royal George Gallery, 2007.

“Spirited Away” exhibition at The Old Royal George Gallery, 2007.

In 2007 three artists ran a self-managed show at The Old Royal George Gallery in East Fremantle; Peta Miller, Robyn Varpins and me.  The three of us went to Singapore together earlier in the year for some Asian inspiration.  Hence the theme was Asian-inspired.  Despite having been to Singapore, all my drawings ended up being inspired by Japan.

"Geisha: The Allure of Mystique" at Kingfisher Gallery, West Perth, 2010.

“Geisha: The Allure of Mystique” was my solo show at Kingfisher Gallery (West Perth) in September 2010.  The title tells you that the show was all about geisha however there were also landscapes and urbanscapes from Kyoto as well.

"Paris en hiver" at Elements Gallery, 2012.

“Paris en hiver” at Elements Gallery, 2012.

In September 2012 I had an exhibition of Parisian drawings at Elements Gallery which was the result of two years of work and three trips to Paris.
