Lines Drawn from a Journey

DiVerse at the S.H.Ervin Galley - 24th May 2009. A 2009 SWF event.

Lines Drawn from a Journey will introduce audiences to an aspect of Margaret Olley’s work that perhaps only a poet can explain. In all works of art, there are inner and outer representations of forms, ideas and experiences. DiVerse hope to bring out those inner connections while extending the surface ideas into new stories, new voices.

MARGARET OLLEY: Life's journey provides a unique insight into the world of National Trust Living Treasure, Margaret Olley, one of this country’s most celebrated artists. The exhibition traces the many places Olley has lived and worked from the late 1940s to the 1970s, years which helped define an important era in Australia's cultural life.
