Jerwood Gallery was designed and built to house the Jerwood Collection. Formed by Alan Grieve, (Chairman of Jerwood Foundation) over the past 23 years, the Jerwood Collection now holds over 250 works of 20th- and 21st-century British art and continues to grow with new acquisitions, donations and bequests under the direction of its curator, Lara Wardle. At the heart of the Collection are paintings, works on paper, prints and sculpture by artists working principally between the First World War and the 1960s, most notably: Barbara Hepworth, Paul Nash, Ben Nicholson, John Piper, L. S. Lowry RA, Walter Sickert ARA and Christopher Wood. The 21st-century strand of the Collection was developed primarily through the acquisition of works by artists who were winners of or shortlisted for the Jerwood Painting Prize (1994–2003), such as Craigie Aitchison RA, Prunella Clough and Basil Beattie RA, but now includes works by contemporary artists whose work has been exhibited at the Jerwood Gallery: Jeffery Camp RA, Rachel Howard and Rose Wylie. Opened in 2012, the award-winning Jerwood Gallery, designed by HAT Projects, is a major capital project of the Jerwood Foundation and was part of a landmark redevelopment of the Stade, a historic area in Hastings Old Town. With its generous windows, Jerwood Gallery consciously connects the interior and the artworks on display with the town and coastal landscape. Alongside a regularly changing exhibition programme with a focus on showcasing the work of some of the most influential contemporary British artists – Jake & Dinos Chapman, Gary Hume, Chantal Joffe and Rose Wylie – the Jerwood Collection inspires much of the Jerwood Gallery’s wider displays. Jerwood Collection is on permanent display at Jerwood Gallery.
