A dynamic space for Jersey artists


Skipton International to sponsor the Link Gallery and create dynamic space for Jersey artists

 

Skipton International is to sponsor Jersey’s Link Gallery from the start of 2017. The Gallery, which is managed by Jersey Heritage, is set in a corridor linking Jersey Museum to the Société Jersiaise. Each month, the gallery features an exhibition by a different Jersey artist, providing them with a central space in St Helier to showcase their work. As part of the Skipton Arts Series, Jersey Heritage will be offering the space to the Jersey Arts Trust for a

three-month Summer Takeover. Lorraine McLean, Mortgage Sales Manager, Skipton International, said:

“We have been committed to the arts in Jersey for a number of years through our partnership with the Jersey Arts Trust and sponsorship of the Skipton Arts Series and Skipton Open Studios.  The Link Gallery offers Jersey artists a free space in the middle of town to exhibit their work.  During the three-month Summer Takeover the JAT will transform the space and bring more artists together to create and display new work.  The Summer Takeover will take place over May, June and July, allowing a larger number of Jersey artists to showcase work to locals and tourists during the busier summer months.
