Australia's most influential female sculptor of this decade
The sculpture of Bronwyn Oliver is an exhibition currently showing at the beautiful TWMA, set in the iconic TarraWarra estate grounds. Situated halfway between Yarra Glen and Healesville in the Yarra Valley.

The museum displays Australian art from the second half of the twentieth century to the present day.

Bronwyn Oliver was one of the most significant Australian sculptors of recent decades. This exhibition displays 50 key works from the 1980s to 2006. Curated by Julie Ewington, it includes early works made in paper, major sculptures from public collections, and maquettes for many of her much-loved public sculptures.

She is recognised for making complex and substantial works in a variety of materials, eventually exclusively in metal. She had been commissioned to produce sculptures in public places.

Some of her major works include Vine, a 16.5-metre-high sculpture in the Sydney Hilton, Magnolia and Palm, in the Sydney Botanical Gardens, and Big Feathers in Brisbane's Queen Street Mall!
