“Show of Care” – Upcoming Exhibition

Join us for Show of Care, and upcoming exhibition of ceramic works by Jan Howlin.
These aren’t your conventional ceramic bowl or vase objects on display, but an exploration into the maintenance of every day life, through rituals and objects often taken for granted.
Jan Howlin explains :
Show of Care is concerned with the way everyday life is maintained within the home.
It has been made in homage to my mother, whose care for me and my family, usually taken for granted, sustained and enriched our lives.
In exploring a number of the domestic activities, tasks and rituals fundamental to the experience of home she created for us, I hope to highlight the profound value of care, loving and giving in everyday life.

The exhibition runs from the 23rd May – 11th June, 2011, so be sure to come by and view Jan’s terrific work.

Anton at ad:tech

You will undoubtedly already know of Anton’s extremely successful exhibition entitled Lagomorpha held at Salerno Gallery last month. But check out what else he’s been up to.
Anton recently completed a commission work for the Yahoo!7 ad:tech trade show at the Sydney Convention Centre, Darling Harbour. For the trade show he drew a three metre square chalk mural on the ground with a three dimensional perspective. It was all about representing Yahoo!7’s proposition of Science, Art and Scale and seemed to really engage people who had a lot of fun posing and interacting with the mural.

Check out Yahoo!7’s video of the event below which features Anton’s work below:

Limited Edition Art Print – “Mr Fox” from Lagomorpha

Following the staggering success of Anton Pulvirentis’s show Lagomorph“, Salerno Gallery is pleased to announce the limited edition art print release of “Mr Fox”.

Lagomorpha explored the experience of Italian-Australians interned throughout Australia during  World War Two and its inter-generational transmission to the present day. Melding human and animal forms in the landscape, Anton gives us a unique insight into the psychological undercurrents of the internee experience.

Each limited edition measures approximately 13×20 inches and is printed on acid free premium-grade fine art rag media using the finest archival pigment ink. All editions are hand signed and numbered by the artist. Framed and un-framed options are available.
Numbers are limited so please contact Salerno Gallery to register your interest.

Lagomorpha – Anton Pulvirenti

We have an amazing new exhibition opening on the 22nd of February.
Salerno Gallery is proud to present “Lagomorpha”, a solo exhibition of illustrated works by Australian artist Anton Pulvirenti.
Each image is a narrative telling part of a story from Anton’s emotionally charged perspective. Anton’s familial view of the Italian Australian internments of World War Two calls upon the viewer to compare the Italian experience of the war to that of introduced pests such as the fox and the rabbit.
Be sure to join us at the opening night on Thursday the 24th of February 6-8pm.
The show is running for a month so you have plenty of time to view Anton’s amazing work.
