A focus exhibition that brings to life the art practice of the late Margaret Olley. Olley was a frequent visitor to Newcastle and supporter of the Gallery, and the Gallery boasts an important collection of her works.
Newcastle Art Gallery recently acquired some key ephemera from Olley’s estate that include artist palettes, paints and brushes.
Situated alongside key works from the collection, these objects bring the idea of the artist’s studio to life and the key ‘ingredients’ that went into creating some of Olley’s most important works of art.
