Another bunch of flowers — special exhibition

19 August – 19 October 2014

You can spend your whole lifetime cleaning the house. I like watching the patina grow. If the house looks dirty, buy another bunch of flowers, is my advice – Margaret Olley

Be charmed by stunning floral-themed artworks from some of Australia's best-loved artists — including pieces rarely on public display.
