Due to popular demand, masters of the ‘pop-up’, JP Art Gallery are delighted to announce the opening of a permanent venue in London’s popular Battersea. The move comes after demand by clients, who span private collectors, interior designers, foundations and corporations around the globe, who requested a tangible resource and platform to access its founder, Joanne Parker’s expertise.

Joanne has built up a superb reputation due to her inimitable knowledge of the art industry and her unique approach to artists and their work, often discovering new artists and pre-empting art trends and cleverly predicting the ‘artists to watch’. It is this skill combined with a genuine client rapport that has earned her a unique position in the global art industry and led her to collate this into JP Art Gallery and Consultancy.

Joanne commented: “It’s been an exciting few years organising Pop Up exhibitions. It has enabled me to proactively source new artists in varying areas and offer them a showcase that they might not otherwise have had. I have also formed working partnerships with many businesses and organisations, in particular with several Social Enterprises that promote social inclusion through the arts.” 

Why a new gallery and why is this particular one unique?

Well Joanne’s skills and knowledge of art, afford her the opportunity to select only the very best emerging artists, which she will present, next to more established and well-known artists. Therefore her clients can be assured that they will receive trustworthy advice on the top current artists, in order to add to their portfolio, or collection.

Joanne already works with prestigious interior designers such as Candy & Candy and private collectors both in the UK and abroad and having a venue now cements her unique offering. Joanne’s vision is a refreshing injection into the art industry, she says: “My commitment is to ensure that our stable of artists are promoted individually and in the right way for them and of course to the right audiences. I would like to build on the recognition and trust we already have within the art world. 
Our key aim is to create an accessible, unintimidating, friendly space to view and buy fine art. Sourcing the right new artists to join the gallery is key, via recommendation, visiting graduate shows and open studio events across the country. Keeping the gallery accessible for both the artist and buyer underpins the ethos of the gallery and will hopefully prove to be a winning method, enjoyed by all.”

JP Art Gallery will curate a regularly rotating exhibition, to introduce new contemporary artworks on a fortnightly basis. These will include a diverse collection across genres: abstracts, landscapes, figurative, sculpture and limited edition prints, with prices ranging from £200 - £850 for prints or paintings and sculpture from £500 to £15,000.

There will also be a regular programme of events which will include six to eight weekly private views, artists talks and art workshops for both children and adults. The gallery also offers an established art consultancy service, working closely with private clients, interior designers, architects and property developers to source artworks for specific projects, large and small.

Solo Exhibition – Benjamin Hope

The first exhibition in their new venue will be works by prize winning painter Benjamin Hope. He will present his debut solo exhibition from 12 – 25 November, 2015.

Benjamin works mainly in oil but also charcoal, pastel and pencil and divides his time between still life, plein air impressionism, portraits, and figure studies. For his exhibition he has painted key London spots, such as Canary Wharf, The City, Trafalgar Square, Exhibition Road, Kings Cross, Temple, Westminster, St. James’s Park and various London bridges. He cites influences ranging from contemporary UK Artists, Peter Brown, Ken Howard and Tom Coates for his plein air paintings, Caravaggio for his still lifes and his portraits are inspired by the works of David Leffel, Rembrandt and Kyffin Williams.
