A Generosity of Spirit: Recent Australian Women’s Art from the QUT Art Collection
A QUT Art Museum touring exhibition
A Generosity of Spirit simultaneously acknowledges the generous philanthropy of former Queensland artist and Queensland University of Technology alumnus Betty Quelhurst (1919-2008), and the work of selected Australian women artists. In 2005, the Betty Quelhurst Fund was established, enabling the QUT Art Museum to purchase major works by leading Australian mid-career women practitioners.
Curated by Stephen Rainbird, the exhibition presents works acquired over the last four years by key figures such as Pat Brassington, Cressida Campbell, Julie Dowling, Fiona Foley, Janet Laurence, Lindy Lee, Sue Lovegrove, Gloria Petyarre, Robyn Stacey and Judith Wright.
