Pamela Kouwenhoven: Silent Auction

Art lovers and the curious at heart have the rare opportunity to acquire significant artworks by an important regional South Australia artist, in a silent auction at the Murray Bridge Regional Gallery this month.

The Pamela Kouwenhoven: Silent Auction exhibition features works by Kouwenhoven (1944-2014) who was born in Moonta and spent much of her life in and around arid farming regions and the Adelaide Hills.

Murray Bridge Regional Gallery Director Fulvia Mantelli said Kouwenhoven’s evocative, multi-media art practice was dedicated to exploring a deep experience of her environment.

“Pamela was profoundly intrigued by the natural landscapes of South Australia and our relationships with them,” she said.

“This exhibition will include seminal works that have been widely celebrated, and others that have rarely been seen before.

“Many will have reserve prices that start from as low as $20 to $50, so this is a brilliant chance to own significant artworks at minimal cost!”   

Kouwenhoven is an award winning artist and many of her works feature in major collections at prestigious institutions including the Art Gallery of South Australia and the National Gallery of Australia.

The Pamela Kouwenhoven: Silent Auction exhibition opens 10am Saturday 9 November.

The closing event and end of silent auction bids will be held 2pm to 4pm Sunday 1 December.

More information about how to register artwork bids will be available on the Murray Bridge Regional Gallery website soon at murraybridgegallery.com.au or contact the gallery anytime.
