Margaret Olley Art Centre - NOW OPEN
To honour the wish of the late Margaret Olley, the Art Centre includes a recreation of her studio, and elements of her home and collections. The offer from the Trust also included a gift of works from the artist’s collection, including finished paintings, a large number of works in progress, ephemera and correspondence in the possession of the Margaret Olley Estate.
The Centre houses a re-creation of rooms from her home studio in Duxford Street, Paddington, including the Hat Factory and the Yellow Room. The new wing also includes additional exhibition space, storage and multimedia areas.
The Frances Mills Education Workshop and the Marks Family Library have also been relocated to the new Centre and in completing the artist’s vision, the Nancy Fairfax Artist in Residence Studio will operate as a standalone facility adjacent to the Margaret Olley Art Centre.
Tweed Shire Council, the Tweed River Art Gallery Foundation Ltd. and the Friends of the Tweed Regional Gallery and Margaret Olley Art Centre Inc. have enthusiastically embraced this project, which provides a facility of national cultural significance. This major capital project required substantial financial support from these organisations, as well as assistance from private and corporate supporters.
Gallery Open 10am - 5pm Wednesday to Sunday
