Contemporary landscape painting in oil
Hilary Goddard studied painting and sculpture at the Southern College of Art Portsmouth from 1952 – 56 and then at Bournemouth and Southampton University from 1956 – 57. She moved to Devon in the sixties where she continues to live and work.
Hilary has been exhibiting professionally for over 5 decades in prestigious venues such as the Mall Galleries London, Royal West of England Academy Bristol and the V &A Museum. She was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 1999 and was member of the Kenn Group of Artists, Paperweight and the Exeter Letterers. Her work can be found in public and private collections in the United Kingdom and abroad.
Between 1970 and 1993 Hilary was the Head of Fine Art at the highly regarded Maynards School in Exeter. Her passion for art and teaching inspired generations of students and gave the school a serious and enduring reputation for Fine Art.
Hilary Godard is a multi skilled artist and although her desire to paint using oil on canvas has led her career she is equally talented at sculpture and calligraphy.
At an exhibition at The Art Room gallery in Topsham, 12th June to 3rd July 2011, her paintings offered an insight into Hilary’s observations of nature and mankind’s emotional and spiritual response to it. She reminds us of its power; the enormity of land mass, cloud formations, the force of wind and weather, the changing light. She reminds us of its fragility and beauty.
This exhibition celebrated Hilary’s long and productive career as an artist and leading educationalist. Older paintings and her current work sat together to show an extraordinarily creative journey.
