Kyffin Williams: Paper to Palette Knife: 14 September – 7 October 2018
Two parallel exhibitions running under the banner Kyffin Williams: Paper to Palette Knife will be taking place this this autumn in the Highgate School Museum on Southwood Lane, London N6 5EE and in the Gallery of the Highgate Literary and Scientific Institution (HLS I), 11 South Grove, London N6 6BS. The former will feature the School’s collection of oils alongside paintings borrowed from private collectors and small loans from the National Library of Wales (NLW) and Oriel Môn. The HLSI will be displaying a substantial loan of (mostly) works on paper from the NLW. Together the two exhibitions may possibly constitute the largest ever retrospective of Kyffin’s work to be shown in England and will provide an absorbing overview of the subjects that he painted and the styles and media that he used. Entry will be free and they will run concurrently from 14th September to 7th October with the following opening times: Tuesday to Friday 1-5pm, Saturday 11am-4pm and Sunday 11am-5pm.
