Catherine Pilgrim, Making History
Brought to you by Lisa Mills
Buda holds a special place in the hearts of the people of Castlemaine, and countless stories encircling the Leviny family’s lives continue to swirl around the town some 34 years after the death of the last surviving sister, Hilda Leviny.
Meticulous, considered drawing is the basis for Catherine Pilgrim’s practice including lithographs, drawings and textiles – with absence, contemporary still life and historical narratives influencing much of the subject matter.
In the exhibition Making History: Hidden world of the Leviny Women, local artist Catherine Pilgrim examines the essence and activities of the mysterious Leviny Women of Buda Historic Home and Garden.
