The raffia-corded ginger jar featured in the still life challenge inspired by Margaret Olley’s Katie’s apples 1989 – 1992 shown alongside a Cezanne postcard of a similar jar in the re-creation.
This summer the Gallery is releasing a series of still life challenges on Facebook and Instagram and invites you to make your own artwork in response to still life compositions inspired by the exhibition At Home: Margaret Olley & Ben Quilty. For our first challenge we have taken inspiration from Katie’s apples by Margaret Olley. Whether it is through painting, drawing, 3d, mixed media or photography – we can’t wait to see how you respond to the challenge. Don’t forget to share your creations on social media with the hashtag #unlockingmargaretshouse!
