The personal touch always makes ordinary things a little

more special, and there’s a festive reminder of this at the Pallant House

Gallery, Chichester, in a free exhibition called Festive Greetings: Artists’

Christmas Cards. A selection of handmade cards given to friends and family by a

host of celebrated British artists is on display until 9 January. Famous names

include Terry Frost, Edward Bawden, John Piper and John Craxton. The work

illustrated seen here was given to Sir Herbert Read at Christmas 1958 by

Terry Frost, and has been loaned to the exhibition by their son, art historian

Benedict Read.

A special children’s card-making workshop will be held on Saturday

4th December, 10:15am until 12.15pm. Ages 5-10. Places must be pre-booked.
