Get Dring Mobile charity auction on 14th and 15th October


THE HUNTED is in the GETDRINGMOBILE charity auction this Wed & Thursday. If you have not heard about Mike Dring, trust me, he is a legend.

Mike was 23 when he broke his neck in a road traffic accident, resulting in paralysis from the upper chest down – medically he is classified as having a complete Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) resulting in Tetraplegia (level C6). Between April 09 and April 2010, friends and family of Mike are attempting to raise money to put towards the purchase of an adapted car which will enable him to drive independently. Mikes needs are such that such a vehicle is highly specialised and comes at a very high price. As part of this fundraising we have organised the GDM Art event and auction which will be held at the Paintworks, Bath Road, Bristol on the 14th and 15th of October.

The doors will be open from 11am to 9pm on Wednesday for a full days viewing of the works going under the hammer. Thursday will be a busy day with the opportunity for further viewing from 12pm.

There will be live painting by Mr Jago, Inkie, Lokey, Felix, Eelus, Xenz, Paris, Boswell, Vermin, Milk and Dora starting at 4pm and the auction including lots by Guy Denning, Pam Glew, Rowdy, Ian Francis and Nick Walker to name but a few, will commence at 7pm. The work can be viewed on line at Dreweatts, www.dnfa.com and at www.art-el.co.uk. Bidding can be made in person or live online at www.the-saleroom.com on the evening, commission bids will be taken with valid credit/debit card details prior to the event. If you wish to make a commission bid and to register for bidding please contact The GDM team on 07789 971273 or e-mail getdringmobile@live.co.uk.
The event will also include a fine art ‘mystery’ postcard sale featuring work from award winning artists from all over the world, many of which have shown in the BP portrait awards and with some having work in the National Portrait Gallery their work usually thousands. This sale therefore gives people the opportunity to purchase a piece of art that would usually cost a small fortune, for just £50.
We are also running a raffle to win a portrait painted by Vincent Brown, a multi award winning portrait and figurative artist from Bristol. Tickets will be available at the event and are also available now via the GDM blog at http://getdringmobile.wordpress.com. For more information about Vincent Brown and to see examples of his amazing work please visit his web-site at www.vincentbrown.co.uk. Vince himself will be attending the event and will determine the winner of our very own portrait competition. We hope to see lots of you there, with live painting, music, beer and curry this promises to be a great night.

If you require any further information regarding the event or Get DringMobile please contact

Shafted and annoyed

Here’s something I’m trying to spread around, so that no one else gets shafted!...... (please show to all artists.)

I recently gave some work on paper to a chap who i will call 'DODGY' He has pics of this wall on flickr and it has all kinds of street/ urban paste-ups that he has presumably got donated by the artists!

And lo and behold, yesterday I noticed that all the work I gave him.......... was sold on ebay!

And he has other paste-ups for sale which looks suspiciously like donated works

The only thing I can do is warn all artists to not do the same, Don’t send him your tests, prints, paste-ups or any free stuff! He has so far sold 121 things in his god-forsaken ebay shop, its amazing the audacity of it!

Please forward to all artist mates, the guy needs blacklisting (and duffing up a bit)

Best wishes and here’s to not getting shafted!

New Batch of Drawings


Ever the fan of vintage, antique and old materials, I recently found an old illustrated French Dictionary from 1919. Each of its 791 pages are full of illustrations, maps and little surprises and are the perfect material to embark on a project.

The drawing project is essentially an idea to fill every page of the dictionary with a drawing. Right now I am compelled to sketch characters that are visually striking and have a inner narrative.

Some of these drawings will become large flags in the future, some will remain a one off drawing. I'm currently drawing on the C's, so this is going to be a long project that will morph and change direction as my work develops over the coming months, or maybe years!

Currently these drawings are only availble from Etsy, my online shop, http://www.pamglew.etsy.com

You can join the RSS feed from the shop to see new drawings listed daily.

New Roses at ART LONDON preview

There's Still Life is an International exhibition taking place at Art London in October and Scope Miami in December. A select group of contemporary artists from the US and Europe have been given a simple brief - to take the traditional discipline of Still Life and produce contemporary paintings, drawings and sculpture.

For the show used the 'hybrid tea rose' flower as a starting point. I created 2 handmade 'hybrid' flags, part american flag, part Union Jack. The cross -fertilisation of the flags echo this idea of a flower being a hybrid.

British Rose (above) is a handmade Union Jack, made from a vintage American flag and vintage denim with a blooming rose, Hybrid Rose is part British Ensign, part American flag, made from a very old Ensign Flag, denim, red stripes from a vintage American flag and embroidered linens for a nod to English Tea. Using my dyeing and bleaching technique, the Hybrid Rose is particularly distressed with drips of bleach giving off a naughty decadence.

Preview the works in show on Saturday 19th September in the Bath gallery
Theres a pre-fair preview day at the gallery where a selection of sculpture and paintings especially made for the Still Life show will be available for their first public viewing before they move onto London (my 2 roses will be there).
Come from 11.00am to 7.00pm, have a glass of wine and see for yourself how all the artists have bent, twisted and interpreted the TSL brief.

Winner!

Today I met up with Alison & Torben from Brighton's Arty Magazine & had a nice chat about what it is to be an artist in the city, the uphill struggle to making a living as a creative and to now find myself as a full-time artist....... that phrase 'full-time artist' was the pinnacle of what aimed for for about 8 years, and finally last year found myself in a place to give up lecturing and concentrate all my attentions to being an artist... finally!
It really was a decision to do one thing well, when I was a part-time lecturer/ part-time artist I felt like I was always letting people down, whether it was galleries, people wanting a commission, or students, there really was not enough hours in the week to do it all... that phrase too 'do it all'... well I made the leap of faith and am rather please that I did...

This time of year always feels strange though, as for a while I would have spent September planning lectures, now I spend September making work for upcoming shows (like 'English Rose' above & 'Hybrid Rose' top which will be at Theres Still Life with Mauger Art for ARTLONDON Fair), having interviews in mags, visiting my framer in Kemptown and frantically making lists..... Its still a busy life, and isn't without stress, theres still late nights, and I'll still be in the studio at least a bit on Saturday and Sunday, but its worth it because its something I love doing, its addictive.

So in a bid to make my work even more a serious thing this week I opened up a business bank account! Blimey, now that is scary

** PS- Congrats to Carl Hardie who won the 300th customer prize! Some collectible booty has now been sent to Carl, including a ltd edition bag and a postcard pack. **

September totes for all


As im gearing up for more shows in October than I've ever done before...... I will be drawing like theres no tomorrow, some will be prep drawings for the work going to Artlondon, AAF London, Edinburgh Art & AAF Amsterdam, so keep tabs on the shop

And as Ive gone passed my 300th mile stone (congrats carl for being number 300!), I am giving away a tote bag for all orders in September

This week I've repainted my studio dazzling white and have been re-sorting and having a mass chuck out of wood, fabric, metal and anything not nailed down! So, Time for an Autumn clean up.


I'll be posting pics of the new space soon and Arty mag are coming to interview me at the end of the week, so I'm looking forward to a chin wag in my cleaner brighter studio, funny how the work seems to glow more on a white wall.... I think it'll be in the next issue so if your a Brighton resident, keep your ear to the ground and look out for a piece on me & my little flag-land.

Who will be lucky number 300


I've loved having my own online shop, and have so far had 298 sales.... so only 2 more to go to the 300 miles stone.

So I've decided that as big thanks who ever makes the lucky 300th sale will get a free tote bag & postcard pack (worth $25). So you can write to your friends on the lush cards and strut around like me on the beach with a nice new bag (or give it to a girlfriend!)

Be lucky number 300 & Check out the shop here

Drawing again

Today I signed all the Red Propeller prints, popped them in the post (well super-wrapped them in bubble, wood, clingfilm and fragile tape) and got down to scanning some new drawings.A recent love of drawing has emerged in me, and I have to say that I have re-found my addiction to sketching. They are still on 'something old' as ever, a French antique dictionary, with some beautiful illustrations and maps, I'm realising that theres something instantly gratifying from sketching.
I'm putting up some new ones on the online shop..
I'm currently gone through all the A's and now on the B's.. this could be a long project........

Finished!

Hot from the magic bleaching room. Last week I finished this, my latest commision, its on a handmade palestinian flag:
It was quite a feat of sewing, (although it looks deceptively simple). Of course vintage Palestinian flags don't come up much, so i had to make it. It was surprisingly tricky to find vintage fabric that was the same colour as a palestinian flag. I've now realised that there must be super strong dyes in flags that with stand dyeing them black and bleaching back to their original colour, without going white! I tried to dye some linen green, then dyed it black and it just bleached back to white! So i made this out of a vintage Italian flag (which is a good green), and some vintage red linen, and used the flag rivets from the italian flag to finish it off.

probably my most detailed, eye yet!

New Flags

Here's some new flags I've made very, very recently, finished last week

I had a little break from 'flag-world' while I made some black brocade works, for the NOIR show , and now feel a slight draw back to flags, theres something magical about bleaching on flags in that you never know what its going to look like until its finished. Some blues go blue (like in Void), others go grey (like in New World), and some just fade to cream (like in Forgotten), so each piece has a big case of random chemical reactions.

The first 2 (Void & New World) will be going to Affordable Art Fair in Bristol with Mauger Modern who are based in Bath. I haven't ever shown my flags in the Bristol AAF, (but have in the last 2 London ones), so it'll be interesting how they are perceived.

Theres been a definate change in my flags recently, the figues are less vulnerable, they are more strong perhaps. I guess thats the positive light that Obama brings, I feel more hopeful for america now than england's foggy future. Obama has the skills to be look empathetic and clever whilst looking like a super-hero. Our boy Gordon Brown however, is mostly seen mumbling, apologysing and looking like a use car salesman, So this month I've unashamedly make 3 more American flags.

I have been attempting of late to make a denim union jack, but having spent about 4 days sewing, pinning and generally wrecking my sewing machine, I had a small hissy fit, tossed it on the fabric pile and vowed to stick to ready-mades.

Void, flag size 87 x 50 cm Dye, bleach and discharge on vintage American flag

New World, flag size 60 x 90 cm, Dye and bleaching technique on embroidered American Flag


Forgotten, flag size 87x 143 cm Dye and bleaching techniques on vintage American flag
