Jackson Gallery

About us

British contemporary art, on the beach at Rock.

By the sea, but not a traditional seaside gallery. Jackson Gallery exhibits an ever-changing collection of contemporary paintings, ceramics and sculpture by both established and emerging British artists. The gallery is curated by Cornish landscape painter Jethro Jackson. 

The space is the result of Jethro’s long held wish to show the work of the artists and makers he admires. With limited space at his own studio and gallery across the water at Porthilly, Jackson Gallery opened in Rock in February 2020. 

“This is a chance for me to show the work that I enjoy, alongside my own. We know all of our artists and makers personally, and a real understanding of their processes is central to what Jackson Gallery is all about.” Jethro Jackson

Hanging in the gallery this first year is a varied collection of still life, landscape and abstract paintings from Ann Armitage, Francesca Owen, Elsa Taylor, Louise Holgate, Paul Wadsworth, Robin Leonard and Jethro Jackson among others. You’ll find ceramics by Cornish potters Chris Prindl, Deborah Mitchell and Jethro’s father Paul Jackson, together with sculpture by Hamish Mackie. 


The Gallery is almost right at the end of Rock Road, near the ferry point and handily close to the Quarry car park. There is a large Hamish Mackie sculpture of a Cretaceous ammonite fossil directly outside, so it’s hard to miss!
