Upstairs @ the JacksonFoundation

 

 

 

While the main gallery features new works and exhibitions by leading contemporary artist Kurt Jackson, the upstairs charity space focuses on the Foundation’s collaborations with the various charities we support, including Greenpeace, Surfers Against Sewage, Friends of the Earth and Cornwall Wildlife Trust.

Upstairs@theJacksonFoundation aims to foster an appreciation of the natural world and the pressures upon it; to promote and encourage an awareness of the environment and conservation through education and the arts.

This upstairs charity space highlights the work of national and locally based charities in the environmental sector.

Currently Showing Upstairs@

Fragile Earth

March 19 – August 13 2022

The current exhibition at our Upstairs@JacksonFoundation gallery space showcases Fragile Earth, the work of textile artist Sally Baldwin. Sally is the Jackson Foundation’s current Invited Artist, chosen due to the unique nature her work – it being interesting, honest art that demands an audience.

Fragile Earth is a body of work evoking natural forms such as trees, pods, flowers, insects, sea life, water.

The materials used – recycled paper, handmade paper, silk waste, silk, cotton scrim – are ghostly, white and ephemeral, suggesting delicate, fragile, finely balanced and vulnerable landscapes.

The pieces in Fragile Earth reflect some of the issues involved in our current environmental crisis.
