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.

Ander Gunn: Seven Decades

August 27th 2022 – February 13th 2023

The current exhibition at our Upstairs@JacksonFoundation gallery space showcases Seven Decades, the work of photographer Ander Gunn. Ander is the Jackson Foundation’s current Invited Artist, chosen due to the unique nature his work – it being interesting, honest art that demands an audience.

This exhibition of black and white images reflects his output over the last 70 years, offering a small sample of portrait, rural and street photography.

Alongside kinetic captures of waves crashing into Cornish cliffs and portraits of internationally acclaimed artists and intellectuals are more intimate moments; glimpses of Gunn’s life as a husband and father and his personal darkroom ephemera.
