Kurt Jackson: The Mining Paintings

Kurt Jackson, one of Cornwall’s most famous contemporary artists, who has built his reputation on interpreting our industrial landscape, especially Cornwall’s mining past, will be the first artist to exhibit in the new Hard Rock Gallery.

Entitled ‘The Mining Paintings’, the much anticipated exhibition will feature work never previously on display – including some pieces created within the adits and shafts of the old Geevor workings, work created at South Crofty and work created in the Spanish copper mine, Aguas Tenidas.

The exhibition, which has been funded by the Arts Council, will run at Geevor from Sunday, October 5th until Sunday, March 15th.

What do you think of the Kurt Jackson Mining paintings at our Hard Rock Gallery?  We would love to know! Either post a comment on the blog or we have set up a specific kurt jackson room to chat about Kurt’s paintings.
