NEW ENGLISH ART CLUB TO FEATURE AT JERRAM GALLERY
11 artists from the New English Art Club (NEAC) will be featured in a group exhibition from Saturday 17 September to Wednesday 5 October 2016.
The Dorset-based Jerram Gallery has selected Jason Bowyer, Louise Balaam, Caroline Frood, Charles Hardaker, Roy Freer, William Selby, Judith Gardner, Jenny Wheatley, Paul Curtis, Michael Whittlesea and the President, Richard Pikesley, to showcase their latest work - a collection of paintings featuring landscapes, seascapes and still lives.

The artists' works have already featured in one-man shows and mixed exhibitions throughout the year. However, the Jerram Gallery felt it was important to have the works represented as a group, as well as at a location outside of London, giving West Country art lovers an opportunity to view, enjoy and purchase the artists' pieces.

The NEAC, whose works are based around direct observation of nature and the human figure, was founded and mounted its first show in 1886. The club was created by a group of artists dissatisfied with the entrenched attitudes of the Royal Academy, and continues to strive and thrive to this day as a platform for figurative painting.

Prices range from £750 to £6500, and the complete exhibition will be available to view from 1 September 2016 at the Jerram Gallery website, and will be accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.
