Eileen Agar at Farleys House & Gallery

DREAMING ONESELF AWAKE
May 20, 2018

Eileen Agar is the subject of an exhibition at Farleys House & Gallery, in Chiddingly, East Sussex, the home of the Surrealists Lee Miller and Roland Penrose from 1949 to 1984. As a good friend of both Miller and Penrose, Agar was a frequent visitor to Farleys. The exhibition features over 50 works on paper by Agar, including early collages that were shown in retrospectives at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, and more recently at Pallant House, Chichester, while many others are on show for the first time.

The exhibition is free and open every Sunday until 15 July.

Meanwhile at The Hepworth Wakefield, Miller's photographs will be displayed alongside sculpture by Agar, Henry Moore, Salvador Dali and others, as part of Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain, which opens on 22 June. 
The exhibition is free and runs until 7 October.
