Painter Lorraine Sack studied at the apprenticed based art school Atelier Lack in her native Minnesota. The school, with linage back to the Boston School of Art and 19th century French Academy, focused on the fine art of seeing nature truthfully. The four year program incorporated the French academy’s ideas of drawing and seeing values with the impressionist idea of seeing true versus formulaic color.
Lorraine’s paintings have been juried into numerous museum shows and selected for several group exhibitions nationally and internationally. Among these she received awards from, The Butler Institute of American Art, The Lexington Art League, The Hoosier Salon, The American Artist Magazine, The California Art Club, The Pastel Society of the West Coast, and The John F. & Anna Stacey Scholarship.
Collections including Lorraine’s work are Illinois Institute of Art – Chicago in Chicago, Illinois, Kinsey Institute Art Gallery in Bloomington, Indiana, Kizu Senior Living Community in Kyoto, Japan, Rosemount Inc. in Denmark, and RTW Corporation in Bloomington, Minnesota.
