Congratulations to SAM MITCHELL who has been awarded the prestigious William Hodges Fellowship for 2014.
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.
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.
Sam will spend six months based in Invercargill during the residency, beginning in early 2014.
