Lorraine Brown Artist in Residence

 This month and in the lead up to SALA, we are thrilled to announce
      our first July Artist in Reside
nce

  Lorraine Brown  
 Sunday 9th July 11.00 am to 3pm

Lorraine's expressive works are the product of her desire to story-tell and to capture the essence of a subject. Working predominantly in watercolour, Lorraine likes to play with creating texture and that 'something special' , taking risks and going anywhere her imagination might take her.

She defines her vivid works as “expressive impressions” and is constantly searching for new ways to use her medium. 

Lorraine has and continues to exhibit in a variety of Adelaide venues, both independently and in group exhibitions with great success. Her paintings are held in private and corporate collections in Australia and overseas.

Come along and enjoy the experience of a great creative environment with warm fires, mulled wine, inspiring music and the opportunity to engage with and observe an artist at work.
