In the Heart of PEI
Lorimer Gallery is located in the historical Victorian Row on Great George Street in downtown Charlottetown, PEI. Lorimer Gallery represents both emerging and established artists and specializes in painting and sculpture that speak to Canadian and Maritime culture, Inuit sculpture and jewelry.
Owners Brian Lorimer and Margaret Anderson have a strong connection to artistic life and to Prince Edward Island.
Brian Lorimer is a Canadian Artist with an adventurous past. After leading Lorimer Studios Inc. to become one of Canada’s pre-eminent mural companies, Brian retired to focus on his personal projects. He has traversed the Inca Trail and traveled to Ethiopia's Omo Valley, one of the most remote places on the planet. Recent series include Project Remembrance, a charitable project which had Brian travelling to France and Belgium to gain inspiration for a series of paintings based on World War I. Previous to Project Remembrance, Brian partnered with City2Sunrise to create a series based in South East Asia which was aimed at creating awareness and funds for an orphanage in Cambodia.
Margaret Anderson is an islander at heart who spent much of her childhood on Prince Edward Island before relocating to Ontario to raise a family and become a nurse. Her and Brian find inspiration together by nurturing the charitable projects they are both energized by. Margaret has a keen eye for detail and loves focusing her passion for the island, beauty and detail into the gallery.
Brian and Margaret are committed to the artists whose work they promote, to the Island, to all things Canadian and most importantly, to giving back.
