Margaret Olley leaves us

Two of the Old Guard in a week! The Divine Miss Olley has finally passed away. Another inspirational figure,  not only for her work ethic and beautiful work but also for her philanthropic generosity to the people of NSW.

An article about Margaret , along with links to some of the Galleries she was associated with, is here. This morning’s Sydney Morning Herald piece, showing one panel of her great final work, a sweeping vista of Sydney Harbour, here.
