Southern Sydney painter and printmaker Pamela Griffith has traversed Australia to observe living creatures in their natural habitat, creating works that celebrate this continent’s flora, fauna and diverse eco-systems. This survey exhibition presents landscapes of southern Sydney and the Illawarra as well as a broad sweep of Australian subject matter in a diverse range of mediums.

Pamela Griffith is a highly recognised printmaker. In recent years she has focussed on painting, working across many mediums including drawing, watercolour, gouache, oil and acrylic works on canvas. Based in southern Sydney, Griffith works from two specially designed studios at her residence. Her print studio comprises a chemical preparation room and technical equipment including presses. Her painting studio is designed for perfect light which is important to a painter who often paints plein air.

Griffith trained as an art teacher and taught in secondary schools, colleges of advanced education, technical colleges, art societies and privately throughout her career. From 1978 she operated the Griffith Studio and Graphic Workshop and many Australian artists made prints under her direction as master printer. She has published over 400 editions of her own etchings and lithographs and produced over 300 editions for other artists.  

Griffith has held over 100 solo exhibitions throughout Australia and overseas including those at Hazelhurst Arts Centre in 2011, Perc Tucker Regional Gallery in 2017 and Wollongong Art Gallery in 2020. She has represented Australia internationally on numerous occasions and has work in public and private collections throughout the world. Griffith was a founding member of the Southern Printmakers Association.
