Sara Hughes in Undreamed of... 50 Years of the Frances Hodgkins Fellowship Exhibition
The Francis Hodgkins Fellowship is a prestigious award given out each year, with the first one awarded in 1966 to Michael Illingworth. Artists such as Ralph Hotere, Grahame Sydney, and Julia Morison, have all been recipients. In 2003, our own gallery artist, Sara Hughes was given this award. To celebrate the 50th anniversary, the Dunedin Public Art Gallery and Hocken Collection have collated works from the 49 fellows, including Sara, in an extensive exhibition showcasing the diversity of those artists who have received and benefited from the Fellowship. Works created during their time in Dunedin are shown, along with more recent works.
The exhibition runs until 26th February 2017, across both the Hocken Library and Dunedin Public Art Gallery, open 10am-5pm daily. For more information, see here.
