What an amazing space this gallery is - it was delightful just being in the building. An awesome display of artwork by Kurt Jackson. Spacious, light, airy - it invites exploration. The video of Kurt working on the beach was mesmerizing!

Walking into this gallery is a revelation. The building is beautifully built to bring space, awe and carefully placed views of the outside. Kurt Jackson’s art is beautifully displayed forcing one to stand or sit and stare. There is a compelling film of him painting...More

Kurt Jackson has the ability to create wonderful paintings that truly reflect the Cornish Coast. It was wonderful to sit on the bench in the middle of the Gallery and absorb all the wonderful art work. A MUST see if you are in St Just.

This gallery in a converted industrial warehouse is the brainchild of artist Kurt Jackson. When we visited it was showing work entirely by KJ, but advised that the exhibition was only running until 21st April. I have no idea whether they only show the artist's...More

We watched with interest, as we renovated a cottage in Nancherrow, the refurbishment of an old shed at the top of the fields we walked past on our way to St.Just. It took us a while to realise we had been witnessing the creation of...More

This is the gallery of artist Kurt Jackson. Wonderful paintings, earthenware and brass-work focusing on "Cot: A Cornish Valley" (to February 2018). The paintings are breathtaking. There is a video expanding on Kurt's work; well worth watching. The building and its construction is interesting too....More
