Jerwood Collection

Since the Foundation’s purchase in 1993 of From my Window at Ditchling by Sir Frank Brangwyn, the Jerwood Foundation’s collection has grown steadily in stature and importance to include around two hundred British oil paintings and works on paper.

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.

Jerwood Collection: Coast

  • 23 April — 6 July 2016 *on now

Works featured in this exhibition including paintings by Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, John Piper, John Tunnard and Christopher Wood, were chosen for their particular connection with the British coastline.

Coastal locations have always held a particular fascination for artists, whether as inspiration or subject matter or as places where groups of artists have gathered together and shared a common sensibility.

A further selection of Jerwood Collection works which explore the coastal theme will be hung in part of Room 3 from Wednesday 12 May - Sunday 9 October.

Prunella Clough Unknown Countries

  • 23 April — 6 July 2016 *on now

Intrigued by overlooked and ignored spaces, this extraordinary British artist thought motorway hard shoulders and puddles on a desolate beach were exotic.

This new retrospective of her work celebrates Clough’s early industrial and later experimental works.

The gallery which nestles amongst the fishing boats and net huts of the historic Old Town, reflects some of the key works on display, including Fishermen with Sprats, 1948, Trawlnet, 1946 and Fisherman Carrying Tarpaulin, c. 1948, which represent her early fishing works.

In contrast, Back Drop, 1933, Electrical Installation I, 1959 and Still Life, c. 1960s, reflect Clough’s move towards creating large scale, more abstract works in her later career.

Picasso

Bitten by Picasso

  • 6 July — 9 October 2016

It draws upon the special collection and archive at Farley Farm House, at Chiddingly, East Sussex – the former home of photographer Lee Miller and surrealist artist Roland Penrose.

The couple came to live at Farley Farm House in 1949 and in the following 35-years built up a collection of contemporary art treasures.

Many of these were made by their friends and visitors, including Picasso, who visited in 1950. Miller photographed Picasso extensively, in his home and in hers.

Marcus Harvey: Inselaffe

  • 16 July — 16 October 2016

Inselaffe, will centre around Harvey's most recent work in ceramics which forges motifs and emblems of Britishness, such as military memorabilia and joke shop knick-knacks into collaged portraits of historical figures - from Nelson to Margaret Thatcher and from Napoleon to Tony Blair.

‘Inselaffe’ is a German word meaning ‘Island Monkeys’ and is used, perhaps derogatively but mostly light heartedly, to describe the people of England. It derives from a tongue in cheek theory that evolution must have stalled in the UK, as British people behave in such a yobbish manner.

This exhibition features tough but humorous sculpture, unapologetic and brash, political yet ambiguous, considered and painterly, and reflects on Harvey's concerns of national identity and masculinity - "It is partly to wrest something from the all-pervading guilt over colonial misdemeanours and in part to ironize an overly romantic valuation of the past. The sentiment seems to be in equal measure irony and affection.”

Part of Hastings’ Root 1066 Festival.

Collagraph Workshop with Brigitta Wilson

Collagraph Weekend Workshop with Birgitta Wilson

  • 2 — 3 July 2016 11:30am-4pm

Collagraphy is a collage printmaking technique, where the image is composed from a variety of textured materials glued to a cardboard or metal base.

This plate is then carefully inked and printed through an etching press using thick dampened paper and a great deal of pressure.

It is a very accessible way of making prints using everyday materials such as leaves, card, wallpaper, string, tissue paper, gauze, scrim, fabric, lace, feathers and even foodstuffs, and can produce wonderfully textured and sophisticated images.

Liquid materials, such as PVA or ceramic tile adhesive can also be used and can be applied to the plate using a brush, palette knife or squeegee.

Much of the joy of working with collagraph lies in the tremendous scope there is for innovation and experiment. It really is the closest the printmaker can get to painting and, in addition, retains great scope for sculptural and graphic treatments.

In this two day workshop we will be constructing collages on mount board using a variety of materials and then printing them using a small portable etching press. We will be experimenting with different inking techniques too and you will be surprised at the results you can achieve even without any previous printmaking experience.

Booking is essential as places are limited. To book, please call 01424 728377 during gallery opening hours.

Events are subject to availability and may be cancelled if minimum numbers are not reached so please book to avoid disappointment. Event tickets are non-refundable unless the event is cancelled, in which case you would be entitled to a full refund. In this instance a member of Jerwood Gallery staff will contact you to arrange the refund.
