Margaret Olley Art Centre – a very crowded house!

A couple of weeks ago I was asked by The Guardian Australia to write a preview on the soon-to-open Margaret Olley Art Centre. The Centre provides a home for the studio of the late Australian artist Margaret Olley (1923 – 2011) – a space that’s incredibly been recreated at Tweed Regional Gallery in Murwillumbah.

I also spoke to Australian artist, Ben Quilty, a friend of the late artist about her life in art. Read the full story in The Guardian.

The photograph below was taken of Margaret Olley’s original home in Paddington by another of her friends, Steven Alderton.
