Margaret Olley: A Generous Life

Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA)

‘A Generous Life’ examines the legacy and influence of the much-loved Australian artist, Margaret Olley (1923–2011) who spent a formative part of her career in Brisbane. A charismatic character who exerted a lasting impact on many artists as a mentor and friend over several decades was also a muse for artists from William Dobell to Jeffrey Smart. The exhibition will profile a life that was immersed in art – her own and that of those she supported.

Also showing at GOMA from 29 June is ‘Quilty’. Australian artist Ben Quilty met Olley when she was a guest judge for the 2002 Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship, which he won. Olley then became a friend and supporter of his work, and in 2011 the legendary painter sat for a portrait which won the Archibald Prize in 2011. You can see this portrait in the Olley exhibition.
