All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission



Out of the gate and off to The Dowse this winter and experience Dame Lynley Dodd's beloved children's book characters. It's apt that Hairy Maclary was born in Lower Hutt. In 1979, while living in Lower Hutt, Dodd made a small sketch of a rather unkempt-looking dog and penned a few words underneath. These words proved to be life-changing and Hairy Maclary was born. However, the show is not just about Hairy Maclary, it's also the story of an artist.

The exhibition features sketches and drawings from many of the Hairy Maclary picture books, plus earlier works. Children will be able to see the development of the books.

Lynley Dodd: A Retrospective is a touring exhibition from Tauranga Art Gallery. Images: Courtesy Penguin Group.
