Three years in the making, Frances Hodgkins and Her Circle is an exhibition that explores and celebrates the importance of community. At its core is an artist who had the enigmatic quality of drawing people to her. Over the course of seven decades she established a confrère of loyal supporters and friends.

These relationships would prove vital in not only the development of her career, but also in turn the establishment of a number of significant artistic vocations for artists such as Owen Merton, Dorothy Kate Richmond, Beatrice Seddon and Amy Krauss. Hodgkins’ own career was in turn influenced by her friendship with artists such as Cedric Morris & Lett Haines, critics and writers John and Myfanwy Piper and art dealers Lucy Wertheim, Duncan Macdonald and Arthur Howell.
