CultureCCA Summer Exhibition: Now on.

CCA Summer Exhibition: Now on.

The creative industries are used to changing tack in a storm and CCA Galleries International are still under sail. Four years ago the gallery launched the Jersey Summer Exhibition, in response to a growing appetite for good quality, curated local work and Covid-19 hasn’t stopped them. The exhibition is modelled on the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy in London and works with a panel of Royal Academicians and respected International artists to select and curate a selling exhibition of local work. And it’s on NOW.

Having work professionally hung, lit and curated at CCA  has helped launch the careers of promising Jersey artists, as well as enforcing that of those already established.

Nearly 230 exhibits were submitted this year by 90 artists (up over 10% from the previous year) across painting, print, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, photography and film. This year’s selection panel were artists Paul Huxley RA and Dan Baldwin, Managing Director of Worton Hall Studios and CCA Gillian Duke, and Gallery Director, Sasha Gibb.

Traditionally, the judges fly in to Jersey to view a shortlist in the gallery. With the world in lock down, it turned into a zoom affair. The panel discussed the work over many hours of video conferencing and agreed on a final selection of 124 pieces for the show.

It’s open now, preview some below and see it at the Gallery until the 29 July. Check the latest post-covid phasing-in opening times
