Nash, who lives in Blaenau Ffestiniog and Lewes, has had many important solo exhibitions and international surveys of sculpture and his work is represented in major museum collections around the world.
The autumn exhibition at Towner Eastbourne
is a major survey of Nash's career from the late 1960s to the present day, exploring his unique contribution to British sculpture
and the international Land Art movement.
"I was born in the South East but have lived at Capel Rhiw, an old Methodist chapel in Blaenau Ffestiniog, since the 1960s.
"Many of my sculptures have been made in Sussex where much of the wood I use is sourced.
"I have watched Towner grow since the 1980s and it is a great pleasure to bring the Capel Rhiw Collection to this magnificent gallery."
200 Seasons also marks one of the major moments in Towner's programme of events and exhibitions celebrating ten years in the gallery"s current building.
The exhibition will also include new work.
The exhibition reflects the artist's long relationship with Wales and East Sussex, in particular Capel Rhiw, Blaenau Ffestiniog, his home and studio for over half a century.
200 Seasons, which will be installed across Towner's four major gallery spaces, will feature key sculptures, films and drawings from the late 1960s to the present day.
Sara Cooper, Head of Collections at Towner Eastbourne, added:
"Bringing these art works made in Sussex and those created in Wales will give audiences a fantastic opportunity to experience the artist"s large scale sculptures and some of the most significant Land Art works in existence."
The exhibited sculptures explore the different ways the artist has cut, carved and manipulated wood to produce work that crosses abstraction and figuration, always retaining his trademark reference to the forms of the original tree and the unique qualities of the chosen material.
