Jack House Gallery

Owner and Art Curator, Rebecca Crow opened the Jack House Gallery this weekend in Portsmouth, Hampshire, UK .

The new, Contemporary Art Gallery situated in the Old Town area, close to the Cathedral and just set back from the waterfront, launched their first show on Saturday 4th of April with works by the much travelled artist, Amartey Golding. 

Rebecca studied art, but for many years has focused on curating where she is most curious. This passion has led her to work with varied collections in Mayfair and Central London Galleries, to the Middle East where she has both curated and worked as an Art Consultant. For the first time, however, this new space provides Rebecca the opportunity to represent art which personally inspires her.

When first approached, Andrew was particularly interested by the artists she had signed up and is delighted to have his work showing alongside them.

Together with co-curator, Anna Burdick, several varied exhibitions are already planned. Susie Perring, Tessa Peason, Derek Chambers and Diana Croft number amongst several printmakers who will be holding a group show later in June, and Richard Colson, Lyndon Hays and Anne Quin are just a few of the painters listed, with Ben Walker exhibiting a one man show from the middle of May this year.

The gallery website provides interesting background information on all the artists. 

Well researched planning has gone into this new space, the considered, attention to detail in establishing an attractive, functional setting to exhibit the artwork is evident and this deserves to be a great success.

A selection of Andrew Holmes’ work is currently listed with the them and he will be exhibiting new work at the Jack House Gallery in July.
