Details

Margaret Olley: Far from a Still Life tells the story of Olley’s incredible life and enduring career through her greatest legacy – her art. Presented exclusively at the Tweed Regional Gallery, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Margaret Olley’s birthday, the exhibition is drawn entirely from the Tweed Regional Gallery collection.

Far from a Still Life includes artwork from as early as Olley’s time at high school in Brisbane through to the final decade of her life; as well as portraits of Olley and contemporary responses to the re-creation of her famous Duxford Street home studio.

Combined, this exhibition is a celebration of art, life, friendship, generosity, and legacy.

The exhibition takes its title from Meg Stewart’s biography Margaret Olley: Far from a Still Life with kind permission from the author and the Margaret Olley Art Trust.

A Tweed Regional Gallery initiative.
