Founded in 1998 by two local art teachers, the Art in the Frame Foundation is a Jersey-registered charity no. 21 and a member of the Association of Jersey Charities. In 2002, we opened The Harbour Gallery Jersey in St Aubin and we are very proud to have Lady Dalton as our current patron.
From the very start, we had two main objectives:
1) To help up-and-coming artists and craftworkers exhibit their work in Jersey & UK and promote them and their work
We promote and support up and coming artists and craftworkers by giving them “a step up” in their artistic careers. They are able to exhibit their work with us at The Harbour Gallery Jersey and sell through us both in-store and online.
2) To enhance art education by providing exciting and innovative artists from Jersey, UK and Europe to run workshops, talks and events in the island’s schools and for students of all ages from 5 to 100!
We provide art education for all ages from primary and secondary school students, A Level and university students and adults alike. We are an accredited examination centre for Art, Textiles and Photography GCSE and A Level and we provide workshops led by tutors from Jersey, the UK and Europe for all ages and abilities.
A major dream and a third objective was to find a hub in which to carry out our work. With the help of a Tourism Development Fund Grant, The Harbour Gallery Jersey at St Aubin, Jersey was born.
Through the gallery, we offer up to 12 stunning art and craft exhibitions a year, in a range of mediums, display the work from over 100 local artists and also host workshops, events and more. The gallery is home to The Textile Centre, a hub for sewing, knitting and fashion.
The Harbour Gallery Jersey is also home to the Gallery Café & Deli, open 9am – 5pm daily.
Neither the charity or the gallery receive any on-going or Government funding of any sort, having to be totally self sufficient and relying on 2 part-time members of staff, weekend students and volunteers… fortunately we all like hard work and a challenge! We are absolutely delighted to be celebrating our 21st anniversary this year and hope that you will all join in our celebrations in this landmark year!
Fundraising will always be needed to keep both the gallery running and to allow us to continue our educational programme. We require help to support our exhibitions, buy new artist equipment for the gallery, sponsor visiting tutors and workshops, purchase educational material etc. Find out more about how you can help here!
