HINTON: Treasures of Australian Art

HINTON: Treasures of Australian Art

We are delighted to be taking our relationship with them to a new level as our Exhibition Sponsor and we look forwards to working with them on this and other major exhibition projects into the future.

JNC Group are proud to announce we are the Exhibition Sponsor of New England Regional Art Museum’s new permanent exhibition HINTON: Treasures of Australian art when it opens on Friday 16 February 2018.

The Howard Hinton Collection at the New England Regional Art Museum is the result of one of the greatest acts of artistic philanthropy and benefaction in Australian history. Between 1928 and 1948 a collection of over 1000 artworks by leading Australian artists were donated to the newly constructed Armidale Teachers’ College by the retired shipping agent, Howard Hinton OBE (1867-1948). 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. HINTON: Treasures of Australian Art displays 132 works selected from the Howard Hinton Collection and provides an overview of Hinton’s aesthetic sensibility, and the quantity and quality of his collection.

JNC Group is driven to deliver exceptional quality, service and value outcomes on our projects and we see these qualities being enhanced through our ongoing relationship with the New England Regional Art Museum,” said Jeremy Blanch, Managing Director of JNC Group. “NERAM is committed to providing our region with access to quality arts, lifestyle and cultural experiences that will attract visitors to spend more time here and potential residents to relocate.”

“Drawing on the specialist skills from our diverse portfolio of businesses, we build success through innovation, collaboration and a corporate culture that thrives on empowering diversity,” he said. “These are all values which we see in action in NERAM and its programs for the wider community of the New England region.”

JNC Group has recently worked at the New England Regional Art Museum to clad the building exterior and on the refurbishment of East Gallery in preparation for the installation of the new permanent display of over 130 artworks from The Howard Hinton Collection.

“JNC Group are a local construction business who have been making their mark around the New England region as well as interstate, with significant projects being constructed around Australia.” said Robert Heather, NERAM Director. “We are delighted to be taking our relationship with them to a new level as our Exhibition Sponsor and we look forwards to working with them on this and other major exhibition projects into the future.”
