Hilary Goddard

Between 1970 and 1993 Hilary Goddard 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.

The paintings in this exhibition offer an insight into Goddard's observations of nature - and mankind’s emotional and spiritual response to it. She reminds us of nature's 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.
