The Collection’s core areas are figurative and abstract works from between the First World War and the 1960s, and contemporary works by artists associated with Jerwood, including several winners of the Jerwood Painting Prize such as Craigie Aitchison, Maggi Hambling and Prunella Clough.

In Focus: Edward Burra - A Rye View

  • 26 February — 7 June 2015 *on now

Edward Burra (1905-1976) is one of the most intriguing and enigmatic artists of the 20th century. A Rye View brings together a group of his watercolours depicting Hastings and Rye.

One of the highlights of the exhibition is The Harbour, Hastings (1947) which depicts Hastings’ lively beach-launched fishing fleet, the same beach and the same fleet that the Jerwood Gallery sits next to today.

This two-room exhibition forms part of a series called ‘In Focus’ where a work of art in the Jerwood Collection is taken as the starting point for a show. Burra’s The Churchyard, Rye, has been in the Jerwood Collection since 2010.

Limelight: Ibrahim El-Salahi - Haraza

  • 28 April — 31 May 2015 *on now

El-Salahi is one of the pioneers of the Sudanese and African art movements. In 1954, he left Sudan on a Government Scholarship to study at the Slade School of Fine Art in London where he was inspired by Western Modernism.

Returning to Sudan to teach, Salahi was held as a political prisoner in the mid 1970’s, after which he left Sudan. He now lives in Oxford. Throughout his career, Salahi has held influential positions as a cultural figure, advising governments and the Arab world on cultural policies.

The series inspired by the Haraza tree is an ongoing investigation of the tree / body metaphor, a link between heaven and earth, creator and created.

Speaking about when the tree blooms, El-Salahi says, ‘This is a definitive statement. Like saying ‘I am me! I am an individual! I do not follow what everyone is doing! When everyone is going to be green, let them be green. I am not! It’s individuality. I love that very much.’

Limelight is a series of one-room displays, showing a range of exciting contemporary art in partnership with commercial galleries.
