Former Chair of Peterborough Artists’ Open Studios (PAOS), Hilary Dunne, sadly passed away on 30th October 2020 at Peterborough Hospice after a long battle against Cancer.
Hilary was a respected international artist whose work reflected her love for and involvement with people she met on her travels across Africa, India, the Caribbean and Latin America where she enjoyed their rich tradition and culture.
Her work received international recognition through exhibition held at galleries across the UK including the Mall Galleries (London), Royal Academy (London), Irongate Studios (Glasgow) as well as overseas galleries including the Kiku Gallery in Osaka (Japan).
Hilary took on the role of Chair of PAOS in 2014 but sadly had to stand down from the role in 2016 due to ill-health. She was a fun and kind person to be around and despite her battle against Cancer, she was always upbeat and cheerful.
Hilary is a sad loss to the art world and our thoughts go out to her family and friends who have had the privilege of knowing a truly talented artist and lovely person to be around.
