Wonders of HINTON

February 3, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - January 30, 2028 @ 4:00 pm

Experience one of the greatest collections of art in regional Australia with the new semi-permanent display, Wonders of Hinton.

The Howard Hinton Collection is the result of one of the greatest acts of artistic philanthropy and benefaction in Australian history. Between 1929 and 1948 a collection of over 1000 artworks were donated to the newly constructed Armidale Teachers’ College by the retired shipping agent, Howard Hinton OBE (1866-1948). The collection provides a snapshot into Australian artistic practice in the early twentieth century as well as some insights into this ‘modest and self-effacing’ gentleman who lived in a boarding house in the north shore suburb of Cremorne and is one of the most significant collections of Australian art in regional New South Wales.
