Margaret Olley: Far from a Still Life tells the story of Margaret 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 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.
