AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Sally Watterson is cataloguing the hundreds of objects in Margaret Olley's Paddington studio. In the days before Olley died at home in July 2011, the artist agreed to a project to reconstruct her studio at the Tweed River Art Gallery in northeastern NSW, the region in which she was born. Three rooms from her home will be recreated there: the "Hat Factory" where Olley painted and entertained; the "Yellow Room", with its Matisse posters and rugs; and the kitchen.' Matthew Westwood.
