Back for its eighth edition, the Jersey Summer Exhibition continues to be the ultimate celebration of artistic inspiration and cultural vibrancy on the island. This exhibition has quickly become a highlight of the Jersey art scene, attracting both locals and visitors with its dynamic showcase of talent. The exhibition features a diverse array of works including ceramics, prints, photography, paintings, and sculptures, attracting collectors and art enthusiasts alike. Modelled after the renowned Royal Academy event in London, the Jersey Summer Exhibition stands out for its rigorous selection process. A panel of professional artists and critics carefully selects the exhibits, ensuring a dynamic and high-quality group selling exhibition. This opportunity not only provides artists with a prestigious platform but also helps to elevate their careers, whether they are emerging talents or professional artists.

This year’s selection panel boasts a remarkable line-up: Tom Hammick, painter and printmaker whose work is held in various public and private collections worldwide, including The British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Deutsche Bank, British Arts Council and The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia; Ben Johnson, painter recognized for his practice based on architectural space and intricated cityscapes whose work is included in permanent collections worldwide, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Sue Timney, iconic designer best-known for her distinctive use of black and white graphic imagery and currently President of the British Institute of Interior Design.

The gallery would like to make special thanks to the exhibition sponsor and prize giver RBC, to exhibition sponsors Hawk and BCR Law and to the contributors Rural Magazine and their associated RURAL prize givers, National Trust for Jersey and Gallery Magazine for their contribution to the Jersey Summer Exhibition 2024, your support has made a difference, and we are deeply grateful for your generosity. Most importantly CCA Galleries International would like to extend our heartfelt thanks once again to all of the artists who submitted their work for this year’s edition.

The show runs through July 26th at CCA Galleries International, 10 Hill Street, St. Helier, with the gallery open to the public 12.00 - 6.00pm, Mon – Fri.

Tom Hammick's work probes the human condition in pulsating   color, pushing the materiality of each medium into a     contemplative narrative. There is an undeniable oscillation   between the quietude of the subject matter-a lone figure on   the beach, three figures tending a garden-and the artist's   distinctly exuberant palette. We as viewers are left with an   electrified stillness.
Moving in and out of the domestic sphere, Hammick captures   humans and their domiciles with expressive   tenderness. "I   suppose as a painter I'm interested in the poetic connection with home, and things being terrestrial (versus extraterrestrial)," the artist says. He continues, "You know, I hope [the paintings are] about what it's like to be human… Whether it's a woman going out to her garden, or two women trying to build shelter, or a man, I suppose me, outside sort of a metaphor of my house or flat or studio, and the color of the night. All these figures kind of going around their daily life, nightly life, almost unaware of, or definitely unaware of, us watching them."
Tom Hammick is an artist living and working in London and East Sussex in the UK. He studied art history at the University of Manchester and later Fine Painting at Camberwell College of Art and NSCAD, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Canada. He has an MA in Printmaking, also from Camberwell, and until recently taught at Fine Art Painting and Printmaking for many years at The University of Brighton. Hammick is the proud father of three mostly grown children as well as a lover of music, theater, film, opera and poetry, all of which informs his work in a profound and tangible way. His work is held in various public and private collections worldwide, including The British Museum, London; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Yale Centre for British Art, New Haven, CT; Deutsche Bank; De Beers; ING Barings; Arthur Anderson; British Arts Council and The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.

a signed limited edition of 150 original silkscreen prints

Each print has been hand signed by Sir Peter Blake CBE and will be sold to benefit Teenage Cancer Trust. A US version will be available to purchase at a later date to benefit Teen Cancer America. The print measures: 67cm x 68cm'Going Home UK ', has been printed at Coriander Studio London using 410gsm Somerset radiant white satin paper, with each image having 22 colours screen printed with a selected spot high gloss varnish.
On 15 March 2024, Mark Knopfler will release a new, special recording of his anthemic 'Going Home (Theme From Local Hero)', to raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust and its American equivalent Teen Cancer America

Performed by Mark Knopfler's Guitar Heroes, produced by his longtime collaborator Guy Fletcher (who has edited the contributions into a 9 minute piece), the track features an unprecedented line-up of some of the greatest guitarists in history. 'Legendary' does not begin to cover it - David Gilmour to Ronnie Wood, Slash to Eric Clapton, Sting to Joan Armatrading, Bruce Springsteen to Pete Townshend, Nile Rodgers to Joan Jett, Brian May to Tony Iommi, Sam Fender and many more jaw dropping names.

And, in a great honour, the track opens with Jeff Beck's final recording. 

Roger Daltrey, Teenage Cancer Trust's Honorary Patron and co-founder of Teen Cancer America (with Pete Townshend), added harmonica, and Beatles icon Ringo Starr is on drums along with his son Zak Starkey, their two drum tracks switching from one to the other, revealing an unmistakable family style. Sting completes an extraordinary rhythm section on bass.

With artwork designed by Sir Peter Blake (The Beatles, The Who, Band Aid, Paul Weller etc), this release is a landmark in rock music history.
