Kurt Jackson’s Clay Country Exhibition

10am – 5pm 17th May – 5th September 2021
Wheal Martyn Clayworks
Access to the exhibition is free, as part of the normal museum admission fee*

Pre-booking is required.

Wheal Martyn Clayworks are delighted to present an exhibition by contemporary artist Kurt Jackson, influenced by his time at Littlejohns China Clay Works.

Kurt’s work is fuelled by a long standing interest in Cornwall’s extractive industry and its role in shaping the physical landscape, culture and heritage of the county. Kurt worked in situ, observing the workers in the pit as they extracted and transported the china clay in an extraordinary manmade landscape. The exhibition includes new mixed media paintings, from huge tarpaulin-sized canvases to small intimate studies. The subject matter ranges from the ‘washing’ of the clay with high pressure monitors, to the blasting of the rock and breaking and transportation.

Find out more about this exhibition here.
