About

Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) presents Olive R Odewahn: A Country Life, a collection of photographs taken between the late 1920's and mid-1960's, and form a record of one woman's experience as a pioneering female photographer. Olive Odewahn's work is an example of mid-twentieth century vernacular photography in rural Australia. It is an exhibition of people and places, posed portraits and candid moments, community events, recreation, and family. The artist’s shadow makes occasional appearances, as do all manner of farm animals, alongside crowds in Wagga Wagga expecting the Queen, and the construction of the Hume Dam in the 1930s. The exhibition is curated by artist and photographer Dr. Catherine Rogers, with the assistance of Valerie Odewahn. Open daily, the museum is the heart of Dean street making it the perfect place to escape the weather, be inspired, meet an artist, get creative, take a break, shop Australian designers, or enjoy a coffee, wine or meal on the gardened terrace. Entry is free.
