Margaret Worth: Earth & Ether

Margaret Worth

9 September - 19 November 2023
Main Gallery & Margaret Scott Gallery

Margaret Worth: Earth & Ether is a significant exhibition celebrating the career of prominent South Australian artist Margaret Worth.

Showcasing a career path dedicated to the pursuit of creativity as multi-faceted, collaborative, and cross-disciplinary, Worth balanced this and the requirements of making a living and raising a family, with the drive to make better public places by involving communities in establishing their priorities.

Covering over five decades of Worth’s artistic output, with loans from institutions and personal collections around Australia, it marks the first time these works have been shown together, evidencing the breadth of Worth’s practice, her mastery of creating a feeling, her special tie to regional and remote South Australia, and her continuous search for the best means available to carry an idea.
