ART FIX: An exhibition exploring the body in nature

Friday 07 April 2023

A photographic series of nudes in nature inspired by the mythological Cambion - the offspring of a fairy or demon who has impregnated a human - are among the many exhibitions islanders are being invited to explore this week.

Every weekend, Express presents a selection of exhibitions, performances, workshops, events and other historic, creative and delicious content to help islanders get their weekly dose of culture.

Here's this week's offering...

Coast to Coast


Local artist Robert Allen is this weekend presenting a series of new paintings and drawings focused on the Jersey coastline and harbours.

The first exhibition will be shown over the Easter weekend at Le Hocq Tower, open from 12:00-18:00 on both days.

The second showing will be at Greve de Lecq Barrack on 15-16 April, open from 10:00-17:00 both days. 


Explore Hidden Worlds 


Hidden Worlds at Jersey Zoo is a family-friendly exhibition that lets adults and children explore the world of science for a day through interactive activities, ranging from UV hand washing to getting up close and personal with a giant tardigrade. 

So far, more than 300 adults and children have already taken part in the slime making workshop.

Comprising of 120 works by 40 artists such as Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Banksy, ‘Mixtape’ pays homage to the monumental moments from the worlds of pop art, graffiti, street art and hip-hop and reflects upon the influence these artists have had on subsequent generations of fashion designers, DJs, filmmakers, photographers and artists.

Whether spray painting directly onto walls, social activism or political rebellion anti-establishment thinking and creativity was at the heart of one of the most influential cultural movements on the last half century.

Mixtape is a giant salon hang exhibition which in many ways provides the soundtrack of our lives and examines how these cultural narratives shifted the public's perception of underground art and culture leading to a global creative revolution in art, music and fashion.

The exhibition runs at Private and Public until Friday 18 May.

Call for female artists

Female artists aged seven and over are being invited to enter the 'My Island' art competition.

The winning works will be displayed in rooms in the States Chamber which have been newly renamed after female political pioneers Ivy Forster and Caroline Trachy.

The competition is open for entries until 21 April and you can find out more information HERE.

Diving for Pearls 


Linda Rose Parkes, a Jersey-born poet, passed away on the 4th of March 2022 and left behind an astonishing variety of written and visual work.

As Linda navigated her human experience and her identity as a woman, her work showcased the atmosphere engendered by emotions and her states of mind. 

A retrospective exhibit of her work - a mix of poetry and paintings crafted over 50 years during Linda's lifetime - is on display at Jersey Arts Centre until 22 April.


Then to Now


'Then to Now' by Peter John Thomson (PJ) is the artist's first exhibition since he won the prestigious JJ Fox Open Art Competition last year.

PJ is a Jersey born-artist who specialises within the field of surface decoration and multidisciplinary art. His process of choice is silkscreen printmaking, with his creative skill set expanding to ceramics, fine art painting and textiles.

The exhibition is running until 30 April at The Merchants House, 20 Commercial Buildings (next to Normans). It is open daily 10:00-15:00, except on Sundays.

Digital arts competition


Guernsey Arts will be running a digital-only art programme to run alongside the Island Games, with entries now open to people from all the participating islands.

The Islands Digital Arts Open is asking artists from Bermuda to Jersey to submit work with the theme of ‘islands’, which can be existing pieces or an original creation.

A chosen piece from each of the 24 islands will be replicated and exhibited in the George Crossan Gallery in the Market Buildings and showcased digitally on screens at various sporting venues in July.
