Margaret Olley's The Yellow Room studio recreated at Tweed Regional Gallery until Sunday 15 March 2015

The Yellow Room exhibition celebrates its name-sake — the small, unassuming, pale yellow room at the rear of the Victorian terrace that formed part of Olley’s home studio at 48 Duxford Street, Paddington, Sydney. The significance of the room to Olley’s life and work lead to its re-creation at the Margaret Olley Art Centre.

The exhibition features a stunning selection of yellow room still lifes and interiors from the early 1990s until 2011, the year of her death

It also features preparatory sketches and unfinished paintings that reveal more of the process behind Olley’s work. 

Her process is the inspiration for an interactive digital painting program that visitors can use to create their own artwork in the MOAC.
