'15 mins from M3, M4 and A34' Kingsclere's destination gallery moves down road
Kingsclere's Jenna Burlingham Gallery has moved... but not that far. Their new, extended premises is Rope House, on the same street as the original gallery building.
The new gallery, housed in a grade II listed building, formerly an 18th-century rope merchant’s home and workshop, has the feeling of an informal townhouse. It has open galleries at ground level and smaller drawing and dining rooms upstairs, with art integrated into interior schemes throughout.
The independent gallery was established in 2010 by Jenna Burlingham and is known for specialising in 20th-century paintings, prints, sculpture and ceramics. It also features work by a selection of living artists. Jenna Burlingham Gallery provides friendly advice and specialist guidance, working with clients in the UK and internationally, whether private and corporate collectors, galleries and institutions, interior designers and consultants.
Jenna said: "We launched in Hampshire over 10 years ago and over the years we have become increasingly well-known as a destination gallery.
"Kingsclere is a wonderful village, 15 minutes from the M3, M4 and A34 and just over an hour from London. We are open six days a week and our visitors always appreciate the time and space to view and discuss everything they might have seen on the website and more."
A winter exhibition is currently on display, showcasing work by prominent artists Ivon Hitchens, Winifred Nicholson, Mary Potter and William Nicholson; Neo-Romantics such as Keith Vaughan, Prunella Clough and John Piper; along with Post-War abstract artists Ben Nicholson, Bryan Wynter, William Scott and Patrick Heron among others.
Showing alongside these established Modern British names is a selection of contemporary artists with whom the gallery works including Martin Yeoman, Nicholas Turner, Keith Purser, Sam Lock, Richard Fox and Emma Maiden. These works of art are placed alongside furniture, fabrics and lamps, reflecting the gallery’s eclectic approach to curation and interior design.
Normal gallery opening hours are: Monday - Friday 10am – 5pm, Saturday 10am – 5pm.
All the works in the gallery can also be seen online on the recently re-launched website www.jennaburlingham.com
