SAD LOSS - At 88 Margaret Olley AC, AO 1923 - 2011, It is with great sadness that today the 26th of July 2011 at the age of 88 the world has lost the Australian darling of the art world.

Only weeks ago we personally had the pleasure of spending time with Margaret Olley in the Presence of Charles Blackman, Garry Shead, Jason Benjamin. Margaret Olley was as always her charming and ever so delightful self-sharing her smile that would melt you in a moment.

Margaret spoke happily about her work and love for colour, it keeps me going and makes me happy, she also spoke about the past and home, and how she doesn't like Telephone companies and electrical things. She will be missed greatly yet her work and love lives on.

Margaret Olley AC, AO 1923 - 2011, passed way to day 26th July 2011, a truly sad loss.
