Yellow Man Grey Man is a film by artist Maurice Galway which looks in a creative way at the hugely successful series of work by Pauline known as The Yellow Man and also her series of works entitled The Grey Man drawings which are not so well known.
"Its rather sad really I was searching for the perfect society. That's why I went to The South Pacific and that's why I invented The Yellow Man. He to me is perfection. I created The Yellow Man because if our society were made up of Yellow Men it would be a marvellous place." Pauline Bewick
The film is currently in post production and will be premiered during the next Dingle International Film Festival.
Festival dates: March 15th to March 18th 2013.

The Taylor Galleries presented a major new exhibition by Pauline Bewick.
The Taylor Galleries presented a major new exhibition by Pauline Bewick which opened in Dublin to the public in September last, celebrating the artist’s 75th birthday. This exhibition consisted of new watercolours, pastels and Aubusson tapestries featuring Bewick’s highly original and distinctive Irish, Tuscan and South Seas images. An important series of paintings from her recent trip to the Far East and China completes the exhibition.
Pauline Bewick has been painting since the age of 2, and over the past seven decades, has chronicled Irish life like no other. She is Ireland’s best-known woman artist and, on her 70th birthday in 2005, donated a collection of 600 of her master works to the Irish nation. This “Seven Ages” collection, exhibited permanently in Waterford and in Killorglin, is internationally unique and is a major cultural asset for Ireland.
75th Birthday Exhibition at the Taylor Galleries was a great success. There were record attendances and sales.
