Jerwood Gallery

Coast

For the 2016 edition of the Fair our museum partner was the award-winning Jerwood Gallery, which exhibited key works from the Jerwood Collection and by artists featured in their 2016 exhibition programme within a pavilion space at the front of the Fair.

Important works by artists including Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, John Piper, John Tunnard and Christopher Wood featured in their exhibition Coast.

Curated by Liz Gilmore (Director, Jerwood Gallery) and Lara Wardle (Curator, Jerwood Collection) the exhibition illustrated the ways in which the British coastline, as a physical and spiritual place, coupled with its extraordinary light, have shaped and influenced selected artists in the Jerwood Collection, which is on permanent display at Jerwood Gallery.

Other key works included in the exhibition were by artists associated with St Ives, the artist's colony in Cornwall where Ben Nicholson, Christopher Wood and Alfred Wallis were living and working in the early 1930s. Their chance meeting in 1928 was to become one of the great milestones in 20th Century British art.

Also on display were works by artists featured in the Jerwood Gallery’s 2016 exhibition programme, including: John Bratby, Prunella Clough and Marcus Harvey.

About Jerwood Gallery

'Jerwood Gallery, nestled on a working fishing beach in Hastings Old Town, offers a uniquely British experience.'
Art of England

With its unique setting between the beach and the cliffs of Hastings Old Town, the award-winning Jerwood Gallery opened in 2012.  The gallery was designed and built to house the Jerwood Collection of 20th and 21st century British art and a varied temporary exhibition programme showcasing the best of modern and contemporary British art.

Formed over the past 22 years, the Jerwood Collection has grown to include over 250 works and is now recognised as one of the most important private collections on public display. 

Its main focus is the period from the First World War to the 1960s. Highlights include works by some of the great names in Modern British art, including Edward Burra, Barbara Hepworth, L S Lowry, Henry Moore, Walter Sickert and Stanley Spencer.  The Collection, which continues to grow, also features works by contemporary artists, including Gillian Ayres, Jeffery Camp, Maggi Hambling and Rose Wylie.
