Locale - New Works By Three Entrepreneurial Women

15 - 20 September 2021

Katrina Goldsworthy, Pia Du Pradal and Catherine Baudet are three entrepreneurial women who created an exhibition that explores new directions in their lives. All three women are members of Women Chiefs of Enterprises International, which is a global organization for women business leaders providing collaboration, friendship, and learning in a supportive network of peers.

The first exhibition was held in May of this year in Pia Du Pradal's gallery in Park Road, Milton. Fellow WCEI member, Margot de Groot, lawyer, entrepreneur and owner of Flowers on Tedder, invited the trio to Tedder Ave, an area where pop up shops and street festivals are created to sit happily beside the well-known permanent businesses to create interesting cultural experiences for the residents of the Gold Coast.
The trio, having previously enjoyed high quality events on Tedder Avenue, particularly with fellow WCEI Gold Coast members, jumped at the opportunity and a second exhibition came to life.

Fashion Designer Pia du Pradal is no stranger to the area, having had a shop previously at Marina Mirage and still maintains a large client base on the Gold Coast.
Pia's journey through her life in Africa and Australia, her love of indigenous art works and her history as an anthropologist as well as fashion designer, culminates in a truly magnificent collection of high-quality couture, design, indigenous artworks and exquisite drawings by the late Jacques du Pradal.

Catherine's long history practicing architecture, combined with her love of painting have led to the creation of a truly bespoke Australian collection of scarves all beautifully printed on silk from her watercolour paintings of our Australian landscapes.

Katrina's journey through life on the land and her love of the Australian Rural Industry led her to the creation of very powerful bull portraits. These magnificent works are painted in acrylic on kangaroo hide and hand stitched to create texture.

The essence of WCEI is truly represented in this exhibition by women who are independent, resilient, entrepreneurial, business owners with the gift of creativity and a passion for their art forms.
