Rural – Jersey Country Life Magazine


‘CCAI’ is known for its’ longstanding and real relationships with the artists it works with. Whether this is mentoring and supporting local artists through the Jersey Summer Exhibition or working and collaborating with International artists and Royal Academicians at Worton Hall Studios. This enables us to bring rare and important work and the artists that make it to a Jersey audience.

1 May- 7 June                      John Hoyland: Scatter the Devils silkscreen, etchings and aquatint by one of Britain’s leading non-figurative painters of his generation. The exhibition is accompanied by the book of the same name by curator, critic and author Andrew Lambirth.

“Paintings are there to be experienced, they are events. They are also to be meditated on and to be enjoyed by the senses; to be felt through the eye.”                                                          John Hoyland

5 May- 7 June                      Sir Peter Blake: Found Art accessible limited edition prints by the ‘Godfather of British Pop Art’, Sir Peter Blake from 2005 – 2020.  

“For me, pop art is often rooted in nostalgia: the nostalgia of old, popular things. And although I’m also continually trying to establish a new pop art, one which stems directly from our time, I’m always looking back at the sources of the idiom and trying to find the technical forms that will best recapture the authentic feel of folk pop.”                                                                               Peter Blake
