A Selling Exhibition: Cecily Sash 1924 - 2019

Pastels, drawings and prints from Cecily's vast collection of work. Books and postcards are also for sale.

Born in South Africa, Cecily studied at Wits College of Art and later with Henry Moore at Chelsea Polytechnic. She lectured at Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg and undertook many prestigious commissions in public spaces in South Africa, as well as exhibiting both at home and abroad (including the Sao Paolo and Venice Biennales). In the 1970s, feeling threatened by the apartheid regime, Cecily settled in Britain and spent the rest of her life in the Welsh Marches. Here she continued to work as an artist and exhibit internationally, as well as teaching adult and children’s classes. Her teaching style was vibrant and dynamic, and her lifelong commitment to art was an inspiration to her students.

Two studies of her work have been published: Cecily Sash: Working Years (1999) and Cecily Sash – Artist and Teacher (2013).
