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.

Valley Lives

From August 28 2021

The Kenidjack, Tregeseal or Nancherrow Valley has been inhabited for 6,000 years. This has been a place of mining, metalwork and agriculture.

Along the valley there were shops, a Sunday school, places of recreation and manufacture. Some of these have now gone but a thriving community lives on. This collection of images and artefacts aims to tell the story of this valley.

For this exhibition, the Jackson Foundation has collaborated with St Just and Pendeen Old Cornwall Society, Geevor Tin Mine Museum, the Holman family, Paul Leggo, Gillian Hocking, and Doug Luxford.
