CULTURE CALENDAR: "Making 2021 really a year to look forward to"

Paintings, prints, portraits and discussions with artists will be on the menu for a Hill Street-based gallery in 2021.

After a festive break, CCA Galleries International will be reopening its doors on 4 January and already has a series of events lined up to fill up islanders' cultural appetites.

"We are incredibly excited to be rescheduling exhibitions put on hold during 2020, making 2021 really a year to look forward to," Sasha Gibb said.

Here are some of the highlights from CCA's 2021 calendar...

Sir Peter Blake: Paintings, prints and pop

The gallery will be exhibiting a large collection of Blake’s work, including early prints, album covers and paintings. There will also be a Q&A with the gallery's long time friend, collaborator, Gillian Duke, the Managing Director of Worton Hall Studios.

Wilhelmina Barnes-Graham, Sir Terry Frost and Sandra Blow

This joint exhibition will present paintings and prints from three artists from the St. Ives School. CCA Galleries has been working with the Wilhelmina Barnes-Graham Trust in Edinburgh to bring together the first selling retrospective of these highly regarded artists.

The exhibition will include paintings, prints and collage, as well as talks and insight into their lives by Rob Airy, Wilhelmina Barnes-Graham Trust and Gillian Duke, CCA who worked with Frost and Blow throughout their career.

Paul Huxley - Exhibition of prints and paintings

Acknowledged globally for his large scale bold and dynamic works, Paul Huxley explores implied perspectives, combining stretched and distorted ellipsis, shapes with flat blocks of colour.

The exhibition will showcase both prints and paintings and will include 'The Accidental Printmaker', a candid discussion by Paul Huxley RA. He will discuss his long career as an artist, exhibiting alongside artists such as Patrick Caulfield, David Hockney, John Hoyland and Bridget Riley, as well as his role in educating the next generation of YBA’s including Tracey Emin and Chris Ofili. 

Deconstructing the myth

Silk screen printing and live discussion with artist Bruce McLean and Gillian Duke from Worton Hall Studios - Thursday 21 January, 15:30 to 17:00          

The discussion will be followed by a private view of the exhibition Handmade with Gallery Director, Sasha Gibb. 

Tickets cost £25 and must be booked in advance from the gallery.  

2020: a year in vision 

Until 29 Jan    

Photographer Glenn Perotte is presenting 55 high-definition portraits he captured this year at CCA Galleries International.

Each of the portraits, which combine six high-resolution prints to give an honest and detailed look at the sitters, is accompanied by the subject’s reflections on 2020.

A book on the exhibition is also available for sale, with all proceeds going to Jersey Hospice. 

Handmade: original prints 

Until 26 February  

Work by Dan Baldwin, Lucie Bennett, Sir Peter Blake, Rose Blake, Barbara Rae, Bruce McLean, Jackie Tsai and Gavin Turk can be seen at the Gallery until the end of February. If you didn’t make it to the exhibition before Christmas, it is a must-see.

Exhibits are selected by a panel of professional artists and shown in a group selling exhibition. Artists of all mediums are invited to apply through the gallery's website before 11 March.
