New Woman reveals the art, personal stories and enduring legacies of Brisbane’s most significant and ground-breaking female artists over the past 100 years.
The exhibition runs form 13th September 2019 - 15th March 2010 at The Museum of Brisbane. Featured artists include Tracey Moffatt, Margaret Cilento, Gwendolyn Grant, Carol McGregor, Olive Ashworth, Judy Watson, Fiona Foley, Pamela See, Jay Younger, Davida Allen, James Barth, Megan Cope, Sancintya Mohini Simpson, Naomi Blacklock, Courtney Coombs, Emma Coulter, Rachael Haynes and Elisa Jane Carmichael. Gwendolyn Grant is one of the artists featured in our book, ODD ROADS to be WALKING. Gwendolyn Grant joins Vida Lahey, Caroline Barker and Daphne Mayo in ODD ROADS and we get a glimpse of how these women made art in the 20th C.
Not only were Gwendolyn (sometimes signed as Gwendoline or Gwen), and her husband William excellent golfers, they were also ambassadors for art in the Brisbane scene. Gwendolyn Grant herself was an accomplished artist. Her works are held at QAGOMA and University of Queensland.
