Jerwood Gallery in Blueprint

As the Jerwood Gallery reaches it's third birthday, James Pallister's recent article in Blueprint offers a moment to reflect on it as one of the successes of a recent "boom in the building of large-scale art galleries in English regional centres," both as a building "which will be valued for years to come" and in placing it amongst contemporaries such as Tate Liverpool, the Baltic in Gateshead, Turner Contemporary in Margate and Colchester's own Firstsite in creating a shift away from London centrism and towards regeneration for these other towns and cities.

"The Jerwood complements the existing string of galleries on the south-east coast comprising Eastbourne's Towner, Bexhill's De La Warr Pavilion and Chichester's Pallant House."  We're really pleased that the Gallery continues to have an impact on a local and national level.
