Joanne commented:

“It’s been an exciting few years organising Pop Up exhibitions. It has enabled me to proactively source new artists in varying areas and offer them a showcase that they might not otherwise have had. I have also formed working partnerships with many businesses and organisations, in particular with several social enterprises that promote social inclusion through the arts.”

JP Art’s key aim is to:

Create an accessible, unintimidating, friendly space to view and buy fine art.

Sourcing the right new artists to join the gallery is key, via recommendation, visiting graduate shows and open studio events across the country. Keeping the gallery accessible for both the artist and buyer underpins the ethos of the gallery and will hopefully prove to be a winning method, enjoyed by all.
JP Art Gallery will curate a regularly rotating exhibition, to introduce new contemporary artworks on a fortnightly basis.

There will also be a regular programme of events which will include six to eight weekly private views, artists talks and art workshops for both children and adults. The gallery also offers an established art consultancy service, working closely with private clients, interior designers, architects and property developers to source artworks for specific projects, large and small.

The first exhibition in their new venue will be works by prize winning painter Benjamin Hope. He will present his debut solo exhibition from 12th – 25th November, 2015.
Benjamin works mainly in oil but also charcoal, pastel and pencil and divides his time between still life, plein air impressionism, portraits, and figure studies. He cites influences ranging from contemporary UK Artists, Peter Brown, Ken Howard and Tom Coates for his plein air paintings, Caravaggio for his still lifes and his portraits are inspired by the works of David Leffel, Rembrandt and Kyffin Williams.
