A Generosity of Spirit: Recent Australian Women's Art from the QUT Art Collection
2 July to 3 October 2010
A Generosity of Spirit simultaneously acknowledges the generous philanthropy of former Queensland artist and QUT alumnus Betty Quelhurst (1919-2008), and the work of selected Australian women artists.
In 2005, the Betty Quelhurst Fund was established in the acquisitions program enabling the QUT Art Museum to purchase major works by leading Australian mid-career women practitioners.
The exhibition presents some 30 key works acquired over the last four years by artists such as Pat Brassington, Cressida Campbell, Julie Dowling, Marian Drew, Fiona Foley, Janet Laurence, Lindy Lee, Sue Lovegrove, Banduk Marika, Gloria Petyarre, Robyn Stacey, Madonna Staunton and Judith Wright.
