Local artist James Colmer (8027) will be participating in a new exhibition titled 'Finding Turner' at the Art for Guernsey Gallery on Mill Street.

Readers, you are correct in thinking this means, Joseph Mallord William Turner!

Turner came to Guernsey in 1832 and created an extensive series of sketches across the islands of Alderney, Sark, Herm, and Guernsey. Art for Guernsey will be showcasing this work and Turner’s time on the Island in conjunction with Tate Britain.

It is incredible for any artist to have the chance for their artwork to be showcased alongside Turner's, and James is absolutely thrilled.

The exhibition opens on Thursday 18 April and runs until Saturday 25 May 2024.
