Remembering Roy
Tribute Exhibition

Exhibition runs October 4th - 30th
Mon - Fri 9.30am - 4pm
Sat 10am - 2pm

Roy Dunningham, the well-known arts advocate and critic, who passed away in April this year, had a lifetime involvement in the visual arts during which he taught, mentored and supported many artists in Hawke’s Bay and beyond.

This exhibition is testament to artists who fondly acknowledge Roy and the part he played in the development of their own arts practice. It features selected works from his own art collection, alongside works by wellknown New Zealand artists, who pay tribute to his influence in honing their voice.

Roy first developed his love of art in secondary school where he was taught by NZ ceramics pioneer and painter Yvonne Rust. He went on to study at Ilam School of Fine Arts at the University of Canterbury where amongst his contemporaries were painters Quentin Macfarlane and Pat Hanly.

On his return to Hawke’s Bay, Roy taught at local high schools where he was regarded as one of the younger generation of more progressive teachers. Amongst Roy’s students were musician Phill Judd and artists Sam Trubridge, Regan Gentry, Freeman White, Matthew Couper and Delicia Sampero to name but a few.
