Rathbone Investment Management International is delighted to be sponsoring the 2014 Jersey Heritage Link Gallery, running at the Jersey Museum from Wednesday 2nd April to Tuesday 30th December.  

Now in its 12th year, the Link Gallery is a series of free exhibitions from selected local artists and this year visitors to the space can look forward to works from seven truly exceptional artists. The exhibitions will showcase a mix of creative talent, from illustrations and paintings through to photography and textile pieces.  

Rathbones sponsorship of the Jersey Heritage Link Gallery allows for much greater promotion of the activity. In addition the charitable donation means that Jersey Heritage can, for the first time this year, run a free school coach service to and from the museum, giving local children the opportunity to visit the Link Gallery exhibitions as part of organised school groups.  

A further exciting element of Rathbones’ sponsorship package is the annual initiative the Big Draw.  Since its launch in 2000, the Big Draw has grown into a huge nationwide celebration of drawing and hundreds of events for adults and children take place every October across the UK.  

Commenting on the agreement Jonathan Giles, Managing Director of Rathbone Investment Management International said “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Jersey Heritage Link Gallery this year and are looking forward to enjoying some of the fascinating and thought provoking exhibitions that are planned. We are particularly proud that the sponsorship funds will help to enable the Island’s school children to visit the Link Gallery and enjoy the interesting range of artwork on display too.”  

Julia Coutanche, from Jersey Heritage, who schedules the Link Gallery exhibitions added, “We are delighted that Rathbones is sponsoring the Link Gallery in 2014. The Link Gallery at Jersey Museum is a community gallery with free access for visitors. For the past eleven years there has been a varied programme of exhibitions by individuals and groups. These have included the work of local artists – from well-established painters to breakthrough names and students. Rathbones’ sponsorship will help Jersey Heritage to raise the profile of the Link Gallery, enable us to promote local artists exhibiting an exciting and eclectic mix of work in this space and increase visitor numbers to Jersey Museum and Art Gallery.”
