Celebrate the work of father and son

The Jackson Foundation is to host the first major retrospective of the paintings and sculptures of the late British artist, Peter Jackson.

Taught by celebrated artist-tutors such as Peter Lanyon and Terry Frost, Jackson very much forged his own path.

This exhibition, titled ‘A Retrospective’, aims to show the variety and diversity of this important artist with pieces representing the last 60 years of his work on canvas, paper and sculpture.

Kurt Jackson’s exhibition, ‘Crab and Lobster’, his latest project, focuses on the richness and diversity of the natural world, looking at crustaceans. In focusing on an apparently mundane group of animals, Kurt Jackson aims to celebrate their uniqueness. He claims that only by acknowledging and appreciating the ordinary as well as the extraordinary can we realistically respect and conserve this bio-diverse world.

Both exhibitions run from 30th March until 27th April at the Jackson Foundation in St Just. Open from Wednesday to Friday, 10am to 5pm, and on Saturdays from 10am until 1pm.
