This year’s Printmakers Exhibition will feature a special H.J. Jackson showcase to celebrate his 80th birthday alongside work from Phil Gray, Ross Loveday, Vicky Oldfield, Anna Perlin, Rosemary Vanns, and Ed Wilson.
H.J. Jackson was born in 1938 in King’s Lynn and lived in a railway house at Harbour Junction beside the main King’s Lynn to London line. In 1953 he cut his first piece of lino and produced a small print of a ‘Galleon in full sail’ printed in a single colour. This print, together with other work, helped him secure a place at the Norwich School of Art. Jackson’s work has been exhibited at Bircham Gallery since 1996, and in 2013 he celebrated 60 years of printmaking.
