Book 1: Margaret Olley: Far From A Still Life (2012), Meg Stewart
Margaret Olley is arguably Australia’s most loved artist. She was also one of the country’s most generous benefactors to public art galleries. This intimate biography begins in the 1920s in the green, tropical wet of Tully, north Queensland, where Margaret’s early childhood was spent on a cane farm and dairy. The story unfolds to tell of her lifelong love affair with painting. Author Meg Stewart also visits the Gallery in July to give an after-hours talk.
