Jethro Jackson | Porthilly Gallery

About the Sponsor:

Porthilly Gallery is an independent, family run business located in the heart of North Cornwall. The renovated farm out-building has been transformed by Jethro Jackson into a calm, creative space, tucked away from the hubbub of bustling holiday makers and beachgoers.

The gallery is situated in the quiet hamlet of Porthilly, Rock and the surrounding coastline and views of the Camel Estuary provide an ever-changing pallet of inspirational colour and texture for Jethro, who works from the studio space at the rear of the gallery.

Porthilly Gallery opened in 2010 and all of the artworks and objects exhibited are made by artists and makers who compliment Jethro’s aesthetic. Currently the gallery is showing a rolling collection of work by Jethro Jackson, Jack Doherty, Paul Jackson, Robin Leonard Hamish Mackie and Chris Prindl.

Visitors are always welcome to Porthilly Gallery |
