Summer Exhibition At Pallant House Opens On Friday 28 June
On Friday 28 June, a ‘Space through Colour’ exhibition of the work of Ivon Hitchens got underway at Pallant House Gallery, sponsored by the Chichester office of Irwin Mitchell.
Sponsoring the exhibition (29 June -13 October) is just part of Irwin Mitchell’s work with the gallery this year, which will include a fundraising event in aid of the law firm’s Charity of the Year, Dementia Support, in the Autumn. The gallery will also be the venue later this year for Irwin Mitchell partner Anthony Nixon to deliver a talk on philanthropic giving.
Expert Opinion“We are proud to sponsor a once in a generation opportunity to see over 70 works of one of the country’s best loved modern artists.
“Pallant House contains one of the finest collections of 20th century British art in the world and we are lucky to have it on our doorstep. Working with the gallery is another way we maintain our links with the local community and we hope people come along and see what the gallery has to offer.” Paula James - Partner & National Head of Lifetime and Estate Planning
With works by Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and Graham Southerland, plus a range of European artists like Paul Cezanne on display, Pallant House is well worth a visit at any time, while the forthcoming Hitchens exhibition offers an additional incentive.
Hitchens (1893-1979) is best known for his post war work, with landscapes featuring bright colours, painted in the open air near his Sussex home. A progressive artist of the Seven and Five Society (which included both Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth), the exhibition offers a chance to view six decades of Hitchens’ in the largest exhibition of his work since 1989.
In addition to the planned events at the gallery, Irwin Mitchell will also be arranging for staff from the Chichester office to have gallery tours of their own during the run of the Space through Colour exhibition, which concludes on Sunday 13 October.
