The current exhibition housed in Bolton Court in Bendigo Art Gallery features abstract art spanning from the 1930s to the present day. Included in the exhibition is work by Helen Maudsley (pictured above with two works by Kate Tucker), alongside work by a number of important Australian artists including Richard Larter, Jenny Watson and Robert Jacks.

Against The Odds at Art Gallery of WA celebrates the work of women artists held in the State Art Collection, focusing on art made in the 1950s. Prompted by the recent purchase of a significant early painting by Helen Maudsley, Against The Odds includes works by thirty-two artists, working across all media.

In addition, Monash University Museum of Art has announced the artists whose work will be included in the upcoming exhibition Thin Skin, including paintings by Helen Maudsley. Curated by Australian, London-based writer, curator and former editor of frieze magazine, Jennifer Higgie, Thin Skin will feature works by more than thirty artists from Australia and overseas who explore the liminal space between figuration and abstraction.
