Mini retrospective of Ditchling artist Guy Malet
8th September 2017 - 1st January 2018
Accompanying New Truth to Materials: Wood is a mini retrospective celebrating a little-known Ditchling wood-engraver, Guy Malet (1900 – 1973). Malet followed the tradition of artists who were drawn to wood as a means of engraving their designs, and is celebrated in our mini retrospective. A student of Iain McNabb at the London School of Art alongside Sybil Andrews and Cyril Power, Malet’s final years were spent living in Ditchling. The subject matter for his beautiful engravings often reflects the stunning local landscape, a selection of which will be on display in the museum’s Print Gallery.
