UC’s Art Curator Lydia Baxendell has curated a special exhibition of watercolours by Margaret Stoddart, shown at the home of her fellow student at the School of Fine Arts, Kate Sheppard.

Set against the park-like garden of Te Whare Waiutuutu Kate Sheppard House in Spring, 'Margaret Stoddart, Garden Scene' reveals a small yet important collection of Stoddart paintings from the University of Canterbury art collection.
A collaboration between Te Puna Rakahau o Macmillan Brown Library and Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga, 'Margaret Stoddart, Garden Scene' highlights the connection between Margaret Stoddart and Kate Sheppard. Kate Sheppard briefly attended Canterbury College School of Fine Arts as a day student. Her name appears beneath that of Margaret Stoddart in the Canterbury College School of Art Register in 1882 and 1883. This rarely-seen Roll Book will be displayed alongside the watercolours in the former home of Kate Sheppard.

No charge for exhibition attendance (normal admission charges apply for Te Whare Waiutuutu Kate Sheppard House).
Te Whare Waiutuutu Kate Sheppard House is open Wednesday - Sunday, 10am - 4pm

A programme of related talks and events will be offered over the duration of the exhibition including Christchurch Heritage Festival and Women’s Suffrage Day.
