This year the Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre invites you to join the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of Margaret Olley’s birthday.
Famously Australia’s most significant painter of still life, Olley was a generous and energetic contributor to the art world as an artist, mentor, advocate and philanthropist.
Read on to see how to join in on the celebrations.
To celebrate the 100 year anniversary of Olley’s birthday, the Tweed Regional Gallery Foundation Ltd. and the Friends of Tweed Regional and Margaret Olley Art Centre Inc. are raising funds through tax deductable donations, to acquire paintings by Margaret Olley to gift to the Tweed Regional Gallery collection.
“The amount is of no importance. My parents gave and gave and gave, not only to us, but to other people. I’d like to make giving contagious.”
