"Carole Hodgson: Sculpture and Works on Paper"
1999-07-15 until 1999-09-19
Haggerty Museum of Art
Milwakee, WI, USA United States of America

Carole Hodgson: Sculpture and Works on Paper features seventeen sculptures and eight collages by British artist Carole Hodgson. The artistís response to her observation of landscapes, buildings, and live objects is the inspiration for the works in the exhibition.

I feel strongly that if visual observation is to progress then extensions of the senses have to be challenged to reveal unseen forces, systems, relationships, connections, transformations - the issues and concerns of drawing

Hodgson studied at the Wimbledon School of Art and Slade School of Fine Art in London. She spent four years traveling to archaeological sites in Asia and South America. Her travels helped build upon her art historical studies by extending the artists subject matter to include landscape and architecture. She continued her training at a studio in Wales and the British School in Rome.

Hodgson has exhibited her work at Flowers East gallery in London since 1972. She has participated in solo exhibitions at Angela Flowers Gallery, London; Christies Fine Art Course, London; Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford; and Lawrence University, Appleton, Wisconsin. Her works are in both private and public collections. Public collections include Arts Council of Great Britain; University College of Wales; Welsh Contemporary Arts Society; and The Department of the Environment, University of Wisconsin-Madison. Hodgsons awards include Kingston University research grants to China, Chile, and Argentina; Grocers Company Bursary to British School at Rome; and the British Council USA Touring Exhibition.

Hodgson has worked as a writer, curator, educator, lecturer, and examiner. She is currently employed as a principal lecturer at Kingston University in London.

The exhibition is sponsored in part by the Marquette University Womens Council Endowment in honor of John P. Raynor, S.J; The British Council; Kingston University; and Angela Flowers Gallery and Flowers East.
