Sydney 3 November 2011 Palla Jeroff Art Show at McIntosh of Mosman with The Balvenie photos and story; MiSociety
Palla Jeroff 2011 collection showcased by McIntosh of Mosman and The Balvenie
McIntosh of Mosman, artist Palla Jeroff, the Trevor Victor Harvey Gallery and The Balvenie rolled out the red carpet to stage a one night only art event in Mosman just north of Sydney.
McIntosh of Mosman, the Trevor Victor Harvey Gallery and MiSociety’s invited guests drooled over the ‘honour guard’ of gleaming Mercedes-Benz vehicles on their way into a expressly designed ‘l’avenue d’art’ showcasing the selected works of Palla Jeroff. Palla’s ‘avenue’ was heralded by tall black plinths displaying extraordinary sculptures by glass artist, Frederick Hart and James Corbett’s prized pieces created entirely from car parts.
‘The Balvenie’ Scotch Whisky bar awaited the enthusiastic crowd of ‘avenue walkers’ and taste cognoscenti with samplings of The Balvenie 12, 15 and 21yr aged single malt Scotch Whisky. This exhibition marked the third in The Balvenie’s successful art series that is supporting selected art exhibition openings in Sydney for 2011.
Trevor Harvey, specially curated the exhibition of 20 works from the 2011 portfolio of the internationally renowned, Palla Jeroff. To mark the occasion Palla added his painting talents to six bottle tubes housing The Balvenie that are sure to become collector items in the future.
McIntosh of Mosman, through owners David and Stephen Perks, made their wonderful showroom space available as an opportunity for their loyal customers and invited guests to experience this, not to be repeated, exhibition of Palla Jeroff’s amazing works.
Trevor Harvey spoke of the influence Palla’s Chinese and Russian background and how it has helped him to capture the spirit of the Australian landscape and his figurative portrayals of it’s people. Trevor also highlighted the fact that Hong Kong and China have now stolen the title of ‘epicentre of global art’ away from Paris and New York.
Palla Jeroff most generously gifted one of his paintings for a silent auction to benefit the Manly Women’s Shelter charity with his painting very quickly finding an enthusiastic new owner.
The Balvenie art series has been devised to underline the affinity between The Balvenie’s historical craftsmanship and the craft of significant art. The series visually demonstrates how consumable craftsmanship can cohabitate so naturally with artistic creativity.
