Hayes Prize 2023: Reggie Burrows Hodges, Turning a Big Ship (September 1–December 31, 2023)
This exhibition presents new work by Reggie Burrows Hodges, the inaugural recipient of the Bartlett H. Hayes, Jr. Prize. Centered on the motifs of the sloop and the sea captain, these compositions engage with and expand the tradition of maritime painting as Hodges contemplates the notion of turning a big ship—of marshalling collective will and labor to resist a powerful current.
The Hayes Prize is awarded by the Addison Artist Council (AAC), which is dedicated to acquiring and commissioning contemporary art and supporting living artists. This prize provides the artist with their first solo museum exhibition at the Addison, along with a publication, acquisition of art for the collection, and an artist’s residency on campus.
