This colourful and whimsical collection of original drawings and fine-art prints were created by the very talented artist Pauline O’Shannessy-Dowling from 2011-2019. On the day this exhibition opened we had to unfortunately close our doors due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, however our gallery is now a ‘virtual gallery’ and the exhibition is continuing.

This ‘Intricate’ exhibition includes POD’s award winning ‘Urban Landscape’ (2011) to her most recent ‘The Future Is Ours To See’ (2019) and everything in between! These unique works include originals, fine-art prints and even designer garments made from fabric printed with her designs. A small selection of works are shown below, click on images for enlargements. A total of 14 originals and over 25 fine-art prints are included in this exhibition, all are available for purchase. Please phone us on 5331 7011 for more details.

Pauline O’Shannessy-Dowling lives and works in in Ballarat, Victoria. She runs her own arts practice, POD Design, combining art-making & teaching. She has exhibited regularly since embarking on Diploma of Visual Arts in 2004, in both solo & curated exhibitions. Her practice is based in the art of drawing, whimsy & colour, combining all three to explore her practice on paper, fashion garments & home furnishings. In recent years, she has exhibited at White Night Ballarat, Lorne Sculpture Biennale, Parliament House Victoria & has worked on Commissions for the City of Ballarat. She is represented in the collections of FedUni in Ballarat; St. John of God Hospital Ballarat; St. Patrick’s College, Ballarat; Clunes Booktown Festival and many private collections.
