To coincide with the major Pallant House Gallery exhibition, Ivon Hitchens: Space Through Colour.
In partnership with Pallant House Gallery and the Petworth Festival.

Ivon Hitchens (1893-1979) moved to live near Petworth, deep in the woods at Graffham, after his London home was bombed in 1940. He continued to live and work there until his death in 1979.

This exhibition at Kevis House Gallery is being held to coincide with Pallant House Gallery's major exhibition Ivon Hitchens: Space through Colour.

Pallant House Gallery and private owners, are lending some of Ivon Hitchens's post-war landscape paintings, featuring the swathes of bright colour for which he is best known.

The exhibition will also show paintings by Ivon's father Alfred Hitchens, his son John Hitchens, and new drawings by his grandson the sculptor Simon Hitchens. Work will also be shown by other artists inspired by Ivon Hitchens, such as Peter Iden (1945-2012), Jill Bray,  Emma Jamison and Tuëma Pattie

Anne Goodchild, the curator of the Pallant House Gallery exhibition, is giving a lecture in the Leconfield Hall as part of the Petworth Festival Programme on Wednesday 17 July.
