The Royal Academy Lecture Theatre
3 December 2 – 3pm. The Royal Academy lecture theatre £20
To mark the opening of Kurt Jackson’s two new shows – at Messums London and Wiltshire – we are delighted to host a talk ‘My practice, 35 years as an environmentally informed artist’ at the Benjamin West Lecture hall at the Royal Academy followed by the exhibition opening on Cork Street and the Artists Party.
Kurt Jackson is the country’s leading environmental painter. His work is a dedication to and celebration of the environment which entwines with his politics as well as his art. His practise involves both plein air and studio work and embraces an extensive range of materials and techniques including mixed media, large canvasses, printmaking and sculpture.
His Royal Academy talk will focus on the journeys and seasonal studies to create a body of work inspired by the river Stour as it heads towards the North Sea and the source of the Nadder, a Wiltshire river that threads through Salisbury into the Avon.
For any one insterested in how we study and observe nature as well as the processes involved in capturing those scenes on paper and canvas, this is rare opportuntity to hear Kurt talking in London.
There are a limited number of places on a Collectors tour of the exhibition ahead of the talk. Please book onto this in advance.
