22 June - 27 August 2006
The first in a series of three annual exhibitions to be presented between 2006 and 2008.
The Betty Quelhurst Gift acknowledges the generous philanthropy of QUT alumnus and distinguished Queensland artist Betty Quelhurst. In 2005, the Betty Quelhurst Fund was established in the acquisitions program which enables the Museum to purchase major works by contemporary Australian women artists. The Fund will help expand holdings of Australian art by leading mid-career practitioners, particularly in the areas of painting, sculpture, prints and photo-media. The exhibition features selected works from the first year of purchases.
