Event Details

Our Frocks Like Mountains presents a series of works from Anita DeSoto’s three-month residency in Riverton, as the Southland Art Foundation’s William Hodges Fellow 2018.

The paintings are a reinterpretation of local colonial women and a celebration of the Suffrage 125th Anniversary. Working with historic photographs sourced from the Southland Museum and Art Gallery, Gore Historical Museum and Riverton/Aparima Heritage Society, DeSoto presents a broad representation of women of different ages, social status and race.
