The Grange Art Gallery 2014

William NicholsonA new series of 18 exhibitions in the newly named Nicholson Art Gallery starts with the man himself. “Artist William Nicholson’s private life may appear more colourful than his atmospheric paintings of our Sussex Downs or his finely crafted wood-cut portraits” exclaims enthusiast Robert Cross who helped compile this exhibition. Nicholson’s association with Rottingdean lasted from 1897-1923. From his first meeting with Rudyard Kipling to his purchasing the old vicarage and re-naming it The Grange.

His life and Art are explored in an informative exhibition that includes a projected slide show of his work and influences.
A series of Sunday talks explore Nicholson’s style and techniques, as well as his many marriages and prickly relationship with his son Ben.

With thanks to Peter Merry for his assistance from his original exhibition in 1995.
