Our Vision

Jerwood Gallery is a charity that enables and displays the excellence of British art; embedded in and contributing to the artistic, social and economic development of Hastings.

Jerwood Gallery is the permanent home of the Jerwood Collection of Modern British Art - a private collection in the public domain. To complement this, the gallery has a varied and regularly changing programme of contemporary and historic exhibitions, celebrating British painting in all its forms.

Jerwood Gallery works to be a cultural hub in Hastings, through our programmes for schools and the wider community. We encourage learning, access and enthusiasm for the visual arts with people of all ages and backgrounds. We work with Hastings Borough Council and other local organisations to promote Hastings and its attractions, and are committed to the vision for regeneration in the town.

Jerwood Gallery is part of a family of organisations, including the Jerwood FoundationJerwood Space and Jerwood Charitable Foundation, which work to support and nurture excellence in the arts.
