In the 1937 Exhibition at NAG, Mary Oldham exhibited two paintings, Come live with me and Garden in April, Helford. She was best known for designing bookplates (a talent shared by her husband, Ernest OLDHAM) which were exhibited regularly in the craft section at Newlyn. The WCAA have, on loan from the Hypatia Collection of Art, an almost complete series of the Oldham designs.
