Home Sown – Saturday 19th May, 2012

The inaugural group exhibition at the brand new Lorraine Pilgrim Studio in Southport opens on Saturday 19 May. Home Sown will celebrate the launch of Lorraine’s latest project with an opening event including artist talks and demonstrations by some of the region’s most exciting emerging and mid-career artists.

Lorraine Pilgrim’s forty-year career in private Art Galleries and Studios has seen her mentor some of the highest achieving artists to emerge from the Gold Coast, Northern NSW and Brisbane regions.

2012 sees the establishment of the Lorraine Pilgrim Studio, an exhibition space on the Gold Coast through which she aims to provide new and established audiences, collectors and clients with the benefits of her knowledge and experience while continuing to nurture the careers of young artists.
