Applications are invited for the William Hodges Fellowship artist in residence for 2012.
The William Hodges Fellowship artist in residence programme aims to bring significant
New Zealand visual artists to Southland and allow them to work within and respond to the
Southland environment and community while they are also making a contribution to the
Southland community and its artists.
History
Although the roots of the William Hodges Fellowship extend back to 1981 it was in 1996 that the
Southland Art Foundation Artist In Residence was established by a joint partnership between
Southland Art Foundation (SAF); Southland Museum & Art Gallery (SMAG) and Southern Institute
of Technology (SIT). It was to provide the opportunity for significant New Zealand visual artists to
work with and within the community of Southland.
In 2000, SAF renamed the residency programme William Hodges Fellowship, in recognition of the
first recorded ‘European Artist in residence in Southland’ who was part of Cook’s second voyage
in 1773. Also in 2000 Burwell House was opened as the residence for the William Hodges Fellow.
The main financial contributors to the Southland Art Foundation and the William Hodges
Fellowship today are The Community Trust of Southland and SMAG.
Residents have included: Mark Adams, Laurence Berry, Kalvin Collins, Tracey Collins, Margaret
Dawson, Janet de Wagt, Geoff Dixon, Irene Ferguson, Murray Grimsdale, Ruth Myers, Joanna
Margaret Paul, John Robinson, David Sarich, Ross T Smith, Nicholas Twist, Lorraine Webb, Ans
Westra, Mark Braunias, Mary-Rose Cook, Peter Peryer, Miranda Parks, James Walker, Anna
Muirhead, Regan Gentry, Ana Terry & Don Hunter and Nic Moon.
Aims of the Fellowship
